  • Description

    Return to India is a brilliant and powerful memoir about what it means to be an immigrant in a foreign country and what propels immigrants to return to their homeland.

    In this intimate and remarkably candid memoir, Shoba Narayan, the author of Monsoon Diary, records her dilemma-ridden life as an immigrant straddling two cultures. What follows is a poignant story about love, family, identity and her search for a place to call home.

    From the thrill of being a naive newcomer in America, to becoming a proud US citizen, to grappling with immigrant parenting challenges, she offers an intense yet humorous insight into the shared dream of the Indian diaspora to return to their homeland. And as the countdown begins to her familys relocation to India, she shows how the journey back can be more complicated than anyone imagines.

    Vivid and eloquent, Return to India is a powerful reflection on a country lost, and then found, by a writer of exceptional talent.

    Interesting Read

    My curiosity towards what goes on the young minds to fly to the foriegn country and why people preferred staying back and why some could return back to their own place got satisfied in full. Nice experience. Thanks Shoba Narayan.

    Awesome Read.!!!

    I am a Canada aspirant myself.
    Of course this book has not changed my decision but sure gave me a perspective that I sure longed for.
    I mean, you know that you are not looking for suspense and thrill in a book like this. You just look how much you can map her in you.
    And she has been candid all the way. Kudos..!!!
