ACROSS THE KALAPANI

Across the Kalapani: The Bihari Presence in Mauritius.  £4.99 plus shipping

This book analyses the roots of Bihari migration from the 19th century to the present day and assesses the experiences of Biharis in Mauritius.

Uniquely in the Bihari diaspora, in the multi-ethnic, multi-ethnic and multi-cultural Republic of Mauritius, Biharis have become crucial power brokers.

Since Independence in 1968, every Prime Minister of Mauritius [bar one, during a brief power-sharing experiment] has been not only Indian but of Bihari descent.

Across the Kalapani brings together academics, activists and artists in a unique exploration of the overseas Biharis.

The illustrations, poems and archival sources which have been used in the book provide a new dimension to the story of the Bihari presence in Mauritius.Cost £4.99 plus shipping and postage
