 ABOUT THE TITLE
“History, poetry, and autobiography merge in this beautifully written and moving account that takes us on a journey from South Asia to Canada, from Mohammed bin Qasim to Justin Trudeau. It is a simple but powerfully written saga of a family struggling with the great issues of our times — diaspora, migration and prejudice — characterized by joy, heartbreak, hope and courage. The book carries the waft of the jasmine flower and is a gift that every reader should cherish.”
Professor Akbar Ahmed
Ibn Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies,
American University, Washington, DC

“Jasmine and Journeys by Najma Shamsi is a literary gem of a book and an enlightening read. What seemed to begin as an historical testimony for her children and grandchildren, ended up as a fascinating cultural and political history of the Indian sub-continent of South Asia. The story of Najma’s family is interwoven with the political history and culture of the times.
“The bonus for me, as I read deeper into the book, was discovering how little I really knew about the sub continent’s history and culture — the celebrations, the ceremonies, the rituals — as well as the social and political upheavals from ancient times through the British era, through partition of the sub-continent to the Pakistan of today, and from there on to frigid, but welcoming Canada. My knowledge of these challenging as well as fascinating times in the life of a people had been limited to the raw outlines painted in today’s hysterical media — in other words, virtual ignorance. Now, I feel as if I have a slightly better appreciation of how we got to where we are today, and a deeper understanding of events which have played a role in shaping our present world. Her family history and the portraits she paints are deeply personal and I am grateful that she decided to share them with us. I hated to say goodbye to them.”

“Najma Shamsi’s warm account of one community’s many migrations is also the story of resilience and grace in times of catastrophic upheaval. Her knowledge is encyclopedic and her memory enviable. She has used both to give her grandchildren, and us, a timeless bulwark against loss.”
Uzma Aslam Khan
Award winning writer and author of Thinner Than Skin,
Trespassing, The Geometry of God and other works.
