Included in this volume are seven journeys covering fifty years. Each can be read as a rite of passage. Satendra Nandan calls the Rights of Passage. His girmit grandparents maternal and paternal had crossed the kalapani of the seven seas to arrive in Fiji around the 1890s. These voyages of self-discovery and self-reflexivity chart different paths from and within Fiji: the first flight from Nadi Airport to his mothers Antyesti Samskara at the Wailoaloa crematorium. The lyrical beauty and ethical depth of a writers experience in Fiji, India, Australia are refracted in each piece: a rare revelation of the journey into ones self.
