This paper appraises Shamshu Deen’s account of his and his wife’s family in Trinidad who left their ‘homeland’ India in 1845. It accounts the ‘pull and push’ factors of sociological, historical, economic and other reasons of the indentures. It highlights author’s description of community feeling among his family. We can find the presence of “imagined communities” (Benedict Anderson, 1982) like community formation among Muslims and non-Muslims there. This article appreciates writer’s strenuous toil to compose the book through different researches - oral researches, telecommunication research, discursive research and other researches.
