About The Book

A poignant chronicle of what it means to be Indian in a foreign land. At a time when India is one of the strongest emerging markets and a developing superpower, tens of thousands of Indians leave the country each year to seek new lives on distant shores. What are they looking for and what do they really find? In a first-of-its-kind narrative, journalist and expat Simran Chawla documents the contemporary Indian immigrant experience in various corners of the world - from Alaska to Australia, Europe to Africa, the Americas to the Middle East. The book tells the story of families like the Singhs, who farm in the heartland of Italy just south of Verona; explores the heartbreaking price of living illegally in London; discovers the lucrative Indian wedding industry in California; meets the community of aunties in Orlando who have found meaning in their lives once again by organizing sewing get-togethers; and tours vineyards in southern France whose Indian owners produce wines to pair with Indian foods. In lucid, affecting prose, Searching for Home tells the stories of people who, though separated by miles of land and years of culture, share experiences that continue to bind them to their homeland.
