Some brief overview of book

Slavery was abolished in the British empire in 1835. The demand for sugar was exploding with people consuming increasing amounts of sugar in chocolates, tea and sweets. To fuel the growing first-world sugar industry of the late 1800s, 1.3 million Indians were shipped to labor on sugarcane plantations in Mauritius, South Africa, Caribbean, Fiji and Reunion.

The indenture system was not too different from slavery. Coolies labored from dawn to dusk, day after day, year after year in inhuman working and living conditions. This book is about the search for my great grandfather and the story of Indian Indenture.
