Sebieren Hassenmahomed

Levens van vreugde en verdriet:
Sebieren Hassenmahomed interviewed many Hindustani women about their lives. The women talk openly about their youth, parents, upbringing, education, love, faith, sexuality, marriage, family life, relatives, expectations within the community for men and women, migration to and life in the Netherlands. Some stories are sad, others humorous: life stories and experiences that may be familiar to the readers. The book ends with an analysis of historian Tanya Sitaram of the function of the book. She works at the National Archives in Suriname and conducts research into the role and significance of women in Hindustani Surinamese history. So far their role and significance have been neglected in history. She elaborates on strong and heroic Hindustani women who have been unknown to the public. This book is only available in Dutch.
