Doing Time With Nehru - Company Message
Voices of Deoli

New Begiinings May 2013

A few weeks back I was recently contacted by a young man living in Palo Alto named Daniel. He told me his mum just read my book and it had really resonated with her. He thought it would be nice if the two of us met. He told me his parents were coming to visit him from Canada in early May and would I be open to meeting them, perhaps at a restaurant. He told him I would be delighted to meet them, but I thought it would be nicer and more relaxing if we had dinner in our home. I also invited two other women, whom I had met briefly shortly after my book launch last October, to join us.  One person named, Joy, was actually born in the camp! and Alice, who was in the camp were one of the internees who had opted to go to China after release. She read my book and then came by the house and bought half a dozen more to give away to friends. 

It will be the first time for me to have a meeting of "ex-internees." The dinner is going to be this coming Tuesday. Ten years ago, I would never have entertained this idea, but now I'm really excited and looking forward to it.
