Raga and Reels: Visual and Poetic Stories of Migration and Diaspora Poems by Bashabi Fraser with Photographs by Hermann Rodrigues

The intricate stories told in Rodrigues portraits are matched by the rhythms and imagery in Fraser’s poetry. From The Bangladeshi Gentleman to Jura Whisky, this book offers an insight into the fusion of Eastern and Western cultures in today’s Scotland. By peppering her poems with both Scots words and Indian words, Fraser demonstrates the bi-cultural nature of many of today’s Scots.
