East or West by Vinati Sukhdev – Book Launch – October 23 2017

Please join us for the launch of East or West, by Vinati Sukhdev, Executive Director, Pratham UK on October 23 2017 at The Nehru Centre, London.

East or West is an NRI mother’s manual on Vinati Sukhdev - East or West book launchbringing up desi children overseas. As every harried parent outside India knows, there is a fine balance to be maintained between giving your children the best of both worlds. Vinati’s book is not prescriptive; it’s a starting point for a dialogue on what values make us Indian, and whether we want those to be inculcated in our children. 

Much like Vinati, the book is unapologetically Indian- though other ethnic minorities, particularly from Asia, will be able to identify with many of the issues.

Vinati is kindly donating all proceeds from the sale of her books to Pratham.

To book your place at the Book Launch and get your copy of the book signed by Vinati, please RSVP at office@pratham.org.uk

You can read early reviews of the book from the Business Standard and Mid Day, and one of the chapters The NRI Nightmare on children wanting to marry foreigners.

“A lighthearted account of motherhood compounded with love for the motherland!”
Amazon Review
“The book deals with a range of NRI problems and explores how parents who were born Indian deal with their NRI children upon whom ‘Indianness’ is thrust.”
