The Indian diaspora, comprising over 20 million people spread across a hundred countries, continues to grow in size and make its presence felt. This collection traces various forms of plurality within the diaspora: geographical dispersion, historical contexts, temporal frames, authorial positions and political affiliations. It is an assemblage, not a narrative, and purposefully so. It does not attempt to produce a new boundary around diasporic identifications, but rather to unsettle diaspora by loosely juxtaposing a set of chapters that provide complementary, sometimes conflicting perspectives on diasporic locations, identifications and representations.

Some sections of the compilation probe the migratory movements that have led to the formation of the Indian diaspora, unpacking its geographical scope and highlighting its different locales. Others look at diasporic practices, focusing on the ways and means of remembering and enacting diasporic belonging and the sites and spaces where such narratives of belonging are performed.

This work is an invaluable resource for students, researchers and academicians working in the fields of anthropology, geography, history, political science, sociology, Asian studies, diaspora studies, South Asian studies, literary studies, cultural studies, ethnic and migration studies.

The volume...has originated to mark the first decade of the Centre for Study of Indian Diaspora, Hyderabad and is a collection of papers covering diverse area.... What makes this book different is the presence of an introduction or a connecting chapter before every section, which provides a rhythm and connectivity to the whole book and doesn`t make the change and the assortment, appear to be abrupt. -- Financial Express

The book offers rare vignettes of globetrotting forays of Indian to regale its readers with the globetrotting Indians. The book divulges prognosis with acuity to prove this mobilisation not to be a lemming-tide syndrome.
