Summary
  • "Bittersweet marks the 125th anniversary of the arrival of the first girmitiyas in Fiji. Ranging across the past and present, these essays, memoirs, short fiction and poetry introduce readers to Indo-Fijians and their world. The collection includes commentaries on sport, health, education and psychology, punctuated by vignettes of social interaction, familial relations and the pain of displacement." "Illustrated with rich colour photographs, Bittersweet is a testament to the complexity of the Indo-Fijian experience."--BOOK JACKET.
  • Celebrates the 125th anniversary of the arrival of the first girmitayas in Fiji and introduces the reader to Indo-Fijians. Impoverished, but rich with the traditions of Indian culture, the girmitayas clung to their heritage while labouring under foreign and hostile conditions.
