'“In ‘Leaving India,’ Minal Hajratwala deftly explores [the Indian] diaspora. . . . ‘Leaving India’ is meticulously researched and evocatively written.” —The Washington Post “I love Minal Hajratwala’s book Leaving India. It is what I imagine India itself to be like: incomparable, sprawling, rich, surprising, very old and wise and forever capable of re-creating itself, no matter where pieces of it lands. Minal Hajratwala is a fine daughter of the continent, bringing insight, intelligence and compassion to the lives and sojourns of her far-flung kin. For those of us who have needed to understand the presence of so many Indians in our various lands, this book is a wonderful primer.” —Alice Walker “Minal Hajratwala’s Leaving India is a fascinating history that kept me up late into the night—and I suspect it will do the same for most readers. Filled with amazing and compelling family stories, it will strike a chord in anyone whose people have come from elsewhere—and today, in America, that’s most of us! I am filled with admiration at Minal’s honesty and the careful beauty of her language. I learned so much, through the story of this one family, about the tragedies and triumphs of the Indian diaspora.” —Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, author of The Palace of Illusions'
