I am a Trinidad-born American citizen settled down with my husband and two children in New Jersey. I was educated in London with a Business Administrative Degree and my occupation was that of a print and fashion model. After the abolition of slavery by the British, a vast number of Immigrants were taken from the Indian sub-continent where they became indentured laborers in the Caribbean. Desperate people were thrown together under tight conditions with rigid plantation discipline under the British Empire. This is a breathtaking, fascinating narrative biography of my ancestors who went to work in the cane fields under the excruciating commands of the British Empire where after five years they were freed and became successful businessmen. This work is painstaking in documenting this true story. It is alive, definitely dramatic, clear and exceptionally moving. My research into this story has never been told before and now must be unfolded because of its powerful and unique history of past times that were unknown to people all over the globe. The story traces my family's history from the streets of Calcutta to the sugar cane plantations of Trinidad owned by the British and these East Indian indentured laborers living in slave-like conditions, then starting several successful businesses and growing from poverty. I trust that you will see this book as not just my own family's journey but in a large measure indicative of the struggles, successes, and failures of the many thousands of Indians who came to the New World as indentured laborers and worked so hard to become successful. Our story is largely unknown in America It is alive and I have tried to make the story inspirational and full of human kindness.

Transitory Gardens  Uprooted Lives

Jimmy's garden on the Lower East Side of Manhattan--an assortment of stones and garbage bags, five tires, a chair, a skid, a refrigerator shelf, some ailanthus trees and goldfish, a wooden fence, and a pond with water carried by hand from a nearby fire hydrant--was recently bulldozed by the city. Jimmy then disappeared. Anna's garden is surrounded by a tall chainlink fence and filled with a menagerie of dolls and stuffed animals. The animals are whole, the dolls are maimed. Anna is a recluse who speaks to no one. The neighbors say she was in a concentration camp as a child. Gardens have always been associated with wealth and leisure, viewed as an addition to home. In this remarkable book a landscape architect and a photographer show us, in word and pictures, gardens built by homeless or impoverished New York City inhabitants. Like traditional gardens, these spaces are designed for pleasure, social activity, or private retreat. Unlike traditional gardens, they are connected to a more active and ephemeral use of the land. Transitory gardens speak the language of our times: here we find the reuse of nearly everything discarded, a sparing use of water and plant materials, an economical treatment of space, and a penchant for icons, toys, flags, and symbols of freedom and nationality. The gardens expand our definition of what makes a garden and what its design means for its creator. Diana Balmori's commentary and Margaret Morton's photographs combine with the garden-makers' own descriptions to encourage us to take note of gardens grown in unlikely places, on abandoned, littered lots, bounded by debris. By focusing on what homeless people make not for material comfort but from social and spiritual need, the book offers insight into both the meaning of landscape and the place of a garden in the life of an individual under duress.

American Jewish leaders, many of German extraction, created the Industrial Removal Office (IRO) in 1901 in order to disperse unemployed Jewish immigrants from New York City to smaller Jewish communities throughout the United States. The IRO was designed to help refugees from persecution in the Pale of Russia find jobs and community support and, secondarily, to reduce the Manhattan ghettoes and minimize antisemitism. In twenty-one years, the IRO distributed seventy-nine thousand East European Jews to over fifteen hundred cities and towns, including Chino, California; Des Moines, Iowa; and Pensacola, Florida. Wherever they went, these twice-displaced immigrants wrote letters to the IRO's main office. Robert A. Rockaway has selected, and translated from Yiddish, letters that describe the immigrants' new surroundings, work conditions, and living situations, as well as letters that give voice to typical tensions between the immigrants and their benefactors. Rockaway introduces the letters with an essay on conditions in the Pale and on early American Jewish attempts to assist emigrants.

Uprooted: The Unheard Story by Tulsa Uprooted tells the story of the Bhutanese people of Nepali origin who were evicted from their homeland, through the eyes of Goshi, a native Bhutanese woman. The story follows Goshi from her childhood in a small village in Bhutan, to her adolescence and schooling, and finally into her adulthood, all the while giving insight and understanding into the events leading up to the exile of the Bhutanese people. She tells of their endurance and resilience, challenges and hardships; of how over a 100,000 of these people were marginalized from being part of a multicultural society and forced to flee the only home they knew to live as refugees in camps in eastern Nepal for seventeen years starting late 1980s. It is the tale of youths trying to blend and fit, torn between conformity and deviance, and the adults' struggle to adjust in a different socio - cultural environment. After being resettled to various countries including the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Netherland, Norway and the United Kingdom in 2008, these people were forced to overcome a host of challenges that come with settling in a completely new environment. Most importantly, this book helps in bringing out the refugees' side of the story on how a large portion of the Bhutanese population were evicted almost overnight, and what stress the people went through when displaced from the only home known to them. About the Author Born the fifth of ten children, Tulsa was raised in Dagapela of Southern Bhutan by her farmer parents. She is one among the thousands of Bhutanese of Nepali origin, who were uprooted from their home and hearth. Having fled the country in January 1992, she lived in exile in Nepal for seventeen years. She, her husband, and their two children have since resettled and have been residents of the United States of America here since September 2008. Her passion for writing, along with her specializations in Sociology and Political Science, allowed her to write this book. She hopes this book will be of special interest to not only the whole former refugee community now scattered across the world, but also to those responsible for relocation and settlement in America and other countries. Apart from her full-time job, Tulsa enjoys reading, cooking, listening to music, yoga, and occasional knitting, as well as spending time with the community elders to converse in English, the language of their new home.

How a German city became Polish after World War II With the stroke of a pen at the Potsdam Conference following the Allied victory in 1945, Breslau, the largest German city east of Berlin, became the Polish city of Wroclaw. Its more than six hundred thousand inhabitants—almost all of them ethnic Germans—were expelled and replaced by Polish settlers from all parts of prewar Poland. Uprooted examines the long-term psychological and cultural consequences of forced migration in twentieth-century Europe through the experiences of Wroclaw's Polish inhabitants. In this pioneering work, Gregor Thum tells the story of how the city's new Polish settlers found themselves in a place that was not only unfamiliar to them but outright repellent given Wroclaw's Prussian-German appearance and the enormous scope of wartime destruction. The immediate consequences were an unstable society, an extremely high crime rate, rapid dilapidation of the building stock, and economic stagnation. This changed only after the city's authorities and a new intellectual elite provided Wroclaw with a Polish founding myth and reshaped the city's appearance to fit the postwar legend that it was an age-old Polish city. Thum also shows how the end of the Cold War and Poland's democratization triggered a public debate about Wroclaw's "amputated memory." Rediscovering the German past, Wroclaw's Poles reinvented their city for the second time since World War II. Uprooted traces the complex historical process by which Wroclaw's new inhabitants revitalized their city and made it their own.

It came as a shock to face moving from the place where I thought I would live for the rest of my life. With the shock came the realization that I was part of that late twentieth century American social phenomenon, a mobile society following their jobs from one place to another. Being uprooted has become a common occurrence in these times.

"An intimate, lesson-filled story of what happens when one of America’s best-known garden writers transplants herself, rooting in to a deeper partnership with nature than ever before." —Margaret Roach, author of A Way to Garden When Page Dickey moved away from her celebrated garden at Duck Hill, she left a landscape she had spent thirty-four years making, nurturing, and loving. She found her next chapter in northwestern Connecticut, on 17 acres of rolling fields and woodland around a former Methodist church. In Uprooted, celebrated garden writer Page Dickey reflects on this transition and on what it means for a gardener to start again. In these pages, fol­low her journey: searching for a new home, discovering the ins and outs of the landscape surround­ing her new garden, establishing the garden, and learning how to be a different kind of gardener. The sur­prise at the heart of the book? Although Dickey was sad to leave her beloved garden, she found herself thrilled to begin a new garden in a wilder, larger landscape.

In our post-9/11 environment, our sense of relative security and stability as privileged subjects living in the heart of Empire has been profoundly shaken. Hollander explores the forces that have brought us to this critical juncture, analyzing the role played by the neoliberal economic paradigm and conservative political agenda that emerged in the West over the past four decades with devastating consequences for the hemisphere's citizens. Narrative testimonies of progressive U.S. and Latin American psychoanalysts illuminate the psychological meanings of living under authoritarian political conditions and show how a psychoanalysis "beyond the couch" contributes to social struggles on behalf of human rights and redistributive justice. By interrogating themes related to the mutual effects of social power and ideology, large group dynamics and unconscious fantasies, affects and defenses, Hollander encourages reflections about our experience as social/psychological subjects.

The Writer Uprooted is the first book to examine the emergence of a new generation of Jewish immigrant authors in America, most of whom grew up in formerly communist countries. In essays that are both personal and scholarly, the contributors to this collection chronicle and clarify issues of personal and cultural dislocation and loss, but also affirm the possibilities of reorientation and renewal. Writers, poets, translators, and critics such as Matei Calinescu, Morris Dickstein, Henryk Grynberg, Geoffrey Hartman, Eva Hoffman, Katarzyna Jerzak, Dov-Ber Kerler, Norman Manea, Zsuzsanna Ozsvath, Lara Vapnyar, and Bronislava Volkova describe how they have coped creatively with the trials of displacement and the challenges and opportunities of resettlement in a new land and, for some, authorship in a new language.
