homes. My brothers gave me a rough time so I wanted to leave India.

travels there was nothing to fear. By rail we came to the depot in
Fijians did not fight with us in
those days. They used to bring a bunch of bananas and exchange it
for a couple of our rotis. They also gave us shelter in their
villages when we ran away from our estate. They appeared as devils
to us, because they were all naked except for a few pieces of banana
leaves tied around their waist.
