As refugees, their lives are turned upside down during the chaos following the Partition of India and they are separated forever…or so it would seem.

 

Beautiful and heartwarming, Gope and Meera – A Migration Story is a tale about a cherished homeland reluctantly left behind and why the Hindu Sindhi community is scattered across the world today.  It is a tale of tragic loss, determined hope, preserved culture and spirited victory that will captivate readers of all ages.
