THE PRISONER OF MIGRATION By Sam Lingayah
Paperback: $17.71
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Prisoner of Migration is an autobiographical novel, informed by the author’s expertise on Mauritian migration. The author’s researches have trawled deep into the oasis of the... More > respondents’ varied colonial cultural heritages striving to explore the factors that have contributed to their paralysis of indecision. This pursuit has unavoidably led him to find clarification by delving into the history of Mauritius, beginning from the Dutch occupation in 1598 to the French colonisation in 1715 and the surrender of Île de France to Britain in 1810. The analytical approach is eclectic, supported by colonial documents and studies as well as information from books and news media. The exposure of African slaves and Indian indentured labourers and their successors to the crucible of the melting pot of the varied cultural legacies seems to have resulted in a Mauritian population that V.S. Naipaul has defined as a ‘manufactured people’.< Less

More > Arab, Chinese and probably Dutch culture in the island makes this compilation of a sex guide a unique one. It took over 2 years to take the "Javasootra" into its current form. It wasn't that I just woke up one day and discovered the blueprint. Neither did I find it buried in a cave in a secluded tropical rainforest area. The Javasootra had developed and evolved over a period of many hundred years before I discovered it from my contacts, from my widespread travels, my student life at various countries, my local adventures and many journeys, too many to mention. This is truly a unique gift to the world from the Javanese archiplago."< Less

Nevertheless, till about a hundred and twenty years ago there was no authentic information in Europe about the existence of Sanskrit literature, but only vague surmise, finding expression in stories about the wisdom of the Indians.”< Less
