Culture & Society

Nadi: Faces in a Village: Memories of a River

Nadi: Memories of a River is a unique composition of art of memory in prose and poetry. Satendra Nandan creates a vivid world of lyrical beauty and personal remembrances that shine like ripples in a river on a moonlit night. It's really about growing up in a village in Fiji after the Second World war: a childhood and youth remembered on the island of Viti Levu in the village of Votualevu next to Nadi international airport. On the banks of the Nadi two worlds meet in the river's flow - 'nadi' in Hindi means a river - Satendra weaves an extraordinary tapestry of Fijian life with deeply personal and warmly affectionate recollections of a vanished world of his girmit grandparents, family and nieghbours across the river in a koro. Faces in a Village was Satendra's first collection of poems printed in Fiji in 1976.
