Sailani Desh Bhagat

Description This travelogue-cum-memoir narrates the life-long experiences of Punjabi youth who immigrated to America and later on got involved in the struggle for Independence of India and kept travelling from America to India and to several other Asian countries. He narrates his varied experiences about Kama Gata Maru ship's journey, and Second World War. The account is written in vernacular, rustic Punjabi idiom and keeps the reader engaged throughout. It also reveals the death and destruction caused by war, life in Asiatic tropical jungles, plight of Indian labour in America and Asia. Thus besides being a biography, it is also a chronicle of his times, though somewhat sketchy.[edit]
