It is an epic tale of family, friends, and the close-knit ties that bindâ€”even through separation and betrayal, poverty and wealth, terrorism and war. Walk With Pride is the engrossing story of three Indian patriarchsâ€”Mehar Singh, Shahbaz Khan and Nanak Chandâ€”childhood friends who immigrate to different countries in East Africa in the early 20th Century and whose lives are forever intertwinedâ€”and changedâ€”through the vagaries of life.
Go with these blood brothers, their fathers and grandfathers, their children and descendants, as they vividly relive the Mau Mau freedom movement in Kenya; deadly friction and brutal warfare between the Sikhs and Hindus in India; dangerous elephant hunts in Tanzania; and unthinkable turmoil as the Indian population is deported en masse from Uganda under the brutal dictatorship of Idi Amin.
Experience life in the trenches, as three beautiful Moslem women are abused, raped, and left for dead by Indian Sikhs. Who is the traveling Iranian rug merchant who takes pity on them and, endangering his own life, hides them and adopts them as his own family. Where will they go as the trauma of the Iranian Revolution erupts all around them?
As this thrilling and daunting generational love story nears its heart-stopping conclusion, two of its brightest stars are trapped in the crossfire of a genocidal civil war between the savage Tutsis and Hutus. Captured, they await their execution. When family members hire mercenaries to go with them on a desperate helicopter rescue attempt, centuries of love, promise, and hope are on the line. Will they succeed? Will their loved ones live to discover the unfathomable secrets that silently bind their hearts together?
