Beyond Paradise: Rights of Passage

 
9789823660226: Beyond Paradise: Rights of Passage

Included in this volume are seven journeys covering 50 years. Each can be read as a rite of passage. Satendra Nandan's girmit grandparents-maternal and paternal-had crossed the kalapani of seven seas to arrive in Fiji around the 1890s. These voyages of self-discovery and self-reflexivity chart different paths from and within Fiji: the first flight from Nadi Airport to his mother's Antyesti Samskara at the Wailoaloa crematorium. The 'lyrical beauty and ethical depth' of a writer's experience in Fiji, India, and Australia are reflected in each piece: a rare revelation of the journey into one's self. Beyond Paradise is a rich and perceptive harvest of memories-personal, political, professional and poetic. It may enrich your reading and inspire you to write your own unique journeys into life.
