Memories of an Indian Childhood
Born in Bombay, India Sita takes us on an evocative journey with a large family, neighbourhood friends, childhood bullies, stubborn hairdos and long train journeys. Slowly the light-hearted stories about friendships and games give way to darker more painful memories – her family’s gruelling exodus at the onset of World War II and later the Indian Emergency, precipitating the need to leave India and come to Britain. Funny and moving Memories of an Indian Childhood is a story about growing up.
