Synopsis of the talk

In this talk, Chinmay Tumbe provides an overview of his book, India Moving: A History of Migration, that attempts to explain when, how and why people have moved to, from and within the subcontinent over centuries. It reveals one of the world’s largest, longest and on-going episodes of labour migration, referred to as the Great Indian Migration Wave, and its significance in modern Indian history. It provides a new perspective on the migration of business communities both within and outside India. It shows how 25 million people who trace their roots to India in the past three centuries, were dispersed across the world from Japan to Jamaica and why internal diasporas matter as much as international diasporas. It documents the mass migrations caused by multiple Partitions, refugee crises and other displacements in Indian history and their disproportionate impact on particular communities. And finally, it provides a perspective on migration and development, in history and in 21st century India.
