Abstract:

Diaspora writers of indenture labourers have invested their time and efforts to produce indenture literature. Authors have given voices to indenture experiences of being marginalised. Such writers have showcased the journeys and conversions of girmits. Many authors have penned the experiences of indentured comprising themes of memory, nostalgia and many such traumatic events along with assimilation. Women writers whose ancestors were brought up from India to sugar plantations have depicted the history of women migration. These writers also present the theme of Diaspora such as Identity Crisis and Indianness in second and third generation Diasporas. In the current paper the writing of Peggy Mohan has been explored with the special reference to Jahajin. Jahajin is studied as course of the journey of Indian Indentures and history of the migrants as well as their adaptation and assimilation in a new culture. The paper also demonstrates that how one connects and holds his/her root and culture through history, language and folktales.

Keywords: Indenture writers, Folktales, History, Language.
