MUHAJIR by Baba Ajam This is the true story of Aroshani, a Sri Lankan girl who first moved to the Middle East to be a housemaid and finally ended in Finland as a registered nurse. Her journey was a real odyssey filled with different countries, good and bad people, dangerous and miraculous events. The story has much to say in the way of advice and insight to all those who are faced with the decision to migrate or not to migrate, it truthfully portrays the working conditions of migrant workers in The Middle East, the difficulties the loosening of family ties of immigrant workers during their long stay in foreign countries inevitably leads to. This is not all: the book has a spiritual and a mystical dimension, the author contemplates on the human condition against the Buddhist background of its leading character. The book is illustrated with 70 color photos of the people that appear in the text (while their true identities are hidden) and of the actual places where the events of the book occurred.
