My Mother Called Me UNNI: A Doctor’s Tale Of Migration

Dr. Venugopal


What makes this book unique, informative and interesting

HOUSTON: It is one of the first such publications from over 1.4 million Indians who have chosen the USA as their domicile.

•It is the story of perhaps the ‘most educated, most successful and the most industrious’ group of migrants in the history of America.

•It is a unique orientation for the readers to know how life was in the pre-independent, colonial, British India during the global depression times; and about its rich, colorful, cultural customs, festivals and traditions.

•It is the fairy-tale of a child who got his first pair of footwear in his 6th grade and who studied under the light of a kerosene lamp, managing to become a doctor, crossing the seas to get over to America, establishing as a successful physician and the president of a nationally known medical clinic.

•It is the narrative of the first wave of immigrants from the subcontinent who brought in, initiated and then established awareness of ancient Indian philosophy and culture in the cowboy country.

•It is also the chronicle of a typical migrant who contributed much to enrich the country he has chosen as his domicile, thus presenting a bold case on the political dialog scene and the extreme viewpoints in our ongoing presidential debates.
