Abstract:

"Born in Lahore in present-day Pakistan, Balwant Bhaneja grew up in the exiled Sindhi Hindu community of Delhi, before emigrating to Canada. "Troubled Pilgrimage" is his account of a journey to his ancestral Sindh in Pakistan. Struggling against the preconceptions nurtutred in post-1947 India, and his own recent fears of the country he's about to visit, Bhaneja finds in Sindh the familiar and the strange, a homeland whose experience is as warm as it is wrenching, dispelling misunderstandings while rasing profound questions about himself. This account is at once a meditation on exile, home, and identity, and on being a modern Canadian, as it is a journey into the enchanting mystical land that was lost to his people at the Partition."--Page 4 of cover.
