Brideless in Wembley: In Search of Indian England

Brideless in Wembley: In Search of Indian England (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


With the multicultural debate so high on the news agenda, "Brideless in Wembley" is a highly topical revelation of the mosaic of life in post-immigration Britain. Sanjay Suri's wanderings through Indian England began while looking for a wife at a marriage mela in Wembley, and his investigation of the lives of diverse communities takes us to: a London college which sells student visas, and the world of illegal immigrants in Southall; the nine nights of dancing in October, when halls are hired for separate castes, partly paid for by the taxpayer; and, 'Multicultural' Leicester, where Indians are driven to live in ghettos by racists. Fascinating, engaging and told with wry humour, these stories show vignettes of everyday life that few suspect can be true in Britain today. Relevant to everyone living in the UK, this important book makes you re-examine our society and the concept of integration.
