About the Book

Road to Belwasa is in many respects a sequel to the author’s first book, A Dip at the Sangam, which was short listed for the First Book Guyana Prize for Literature.

Growing up in Sand Reef, Reuben had heard tales about his great-grandfather, about how he’d been kidnapped to toil like a slave in British Guiana. He longed to travel to that little village called Belwasa, deep in Bihar, to find out more about that part of his ancestral history. To get there, the reader is lured to find out more about Reuben’s life and the sacrifices he had to make before he made that journey to Belwasa.
