What happens when the demands of the global economy with all of its excess baggage of Westernizing forces collide with the deeply held traditions of an age-old culture like India's?

Sholem Aleichem laughing in the darkness ( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 37 libraries worldwide
A portrait of writer Sholem Aleichem, whose stories about Tevye the milkman became the basis of the Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof.
