Social and Cultural Dimensions of Indian Indentured Labour and its Diaspora: Past and Present

 
Maurits S. Hassankhan (Editor) Lomarsh Roopnarine (Editor) Radica Mahase (Editor)
Synopsis

There is a body of literature on the Indian Diaspora in Europe and North America that has focused on issues relating to assimilation, accommodation, identity formation and remittances. However, the chapters in Part 2 probe deeper into the hidden aspects of Hindustani life in the Netherlands. The intensive ethnographic research reveals how the immigrant group has faced the problem of mental health, alcoholism, depression, suicide, emotional loss and educational achievements.

Part 3 consists of three articles dealing exclusively with religion, arts and identity in Suriname. Two articles compare ‘blues’ with ‘birha’ (biraha), a form of traditional music brought from India to Suriname. The other essay is on body markers of different ethnic groups in Suriname, as identity markers. The final article in this section deals with the position of churches and religions in Suriname’s history.

The three chapters of Part 4 focus on the cultural legacy that was transported from India to the Caribbean. It has remained rich and the musical instruments continue to exist until today. One article looks at the Indo-Caribbean in general while two focus specifically on aspects of culture in Trinidad and Tobago.
