The Lost Homestead: Mahatma Gandhi, my family and the legacy of empire [9781473677746]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Marina Wheeler's mother, Dip, lost her home aged 14 when she and her Sikh family were forced to flee their hometown during Partition in 1947. Some years after Partition, Dip was again 'displaced', this time by choice, when she married Marina's English father and left India for good. But she had always yearned for the homestead to which she never returned.

In The Lost Homestead Wheeler delves deep into the past, drawing on the oral history recounted by her mother to learn about the world that was left behind in India, painting a detailed picture of the end of the Raj, the struggle for independence, and the legacy of India's great leaders.

Being Anglo-Indian, the product of an English father and Sikh mother, she explores the themes of cultural duality and ambivalence she herself has struggled with, and crucially seeks to explain why, after Partition, her mother never really felt she belonged.
AUTHOR: Marina is an Anglo-Indian, London-based barrister specialising in constitutional and human rights law. She was made Queen's Counsel in 2016 and also teaches mediation and conflict resolution, part-time. She writes regularly for the UK Human Rights Blog as well as national newspapers, usually on legal subjects.
