Through adversity, a new life emerges
Bouncing back from
one of the horrific episodes of world history—Idi Amin’s expulsion of
80,000 Asians from Uganda— Mohezin Tejani presents a collection of true
stories about being a global Muslim refugee.
from the confines of his own culture by political realities, Tejani
sets out to learn how to be rooted in the absence of a place to call
home. His writing is a hypnotic bhangra dance through time and space
where he deftly explores both geographical and psychological
displacement. Yet it is precisely through such disorientation and a host
of intercultural encounters that he eventually finds solace in being a
‘global village on two legs.’
Idi Amin portrays the intersecting points of congruence among humans
that are neither from the East nor the West, nor the North or South, but
are all part of a global compass navigating the new world of tomorrow.
