Power to Shock, Challenge and Inspire!
Tears in Paradise is a book that needs to be read not only to gain an insight into Indo-Fijian history but also to understand how history of the world has been accredited and camouflaged to hide the inequities of those that purportedly championed the cause of human rights but themselves violated those rights with impunity.
Tears in Paradise has the power that will shock, violence that will confound, suffering that will haunt, endurance that will challenge, struggle that will inspire and fortitude that will astound. Others confirm –
“In Tears in Paradise, an immaculately presented, well-researched book, Rajendra Prasad has painted a very vivid picture of the indentured Indo-Fijians… the whips and taunts of the sadistic overseers and managers, exacerbated by a justice system heavily weighted against them, provide gruesome reading”. Bernard Holibar, Secretary, New Zealand Society of Authors, Auckland Branch.
