 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The book is about how Hinduism arrived in South Africa and has flourished in the last one-and-a-half centuries. It is a narrative of the indentured Indians who arrived in Natal in 1860 and propagated Hindu religion in Southern Africa for the first time. The book also details the unique practices that have emerged in South Africa and how Hinduism in the diaspora could be shaped by local social and political conditions as well as immigration patterns. The book reflects the diversity of Hindu practices and the survival of many village traditions that were brought to South Africa.
