In 1913 when the Gadar Party was formed in Oregon, it was intended as an armed struggle to overthrow the British who were ruling India. Through their mouthpiece, the Gadar newspaper, the Gadarites made their intentions clear. The British was their enemy and their goal was a United States of India.

Located in the south-western Indian Ocean, just 150 km away from Mauritius, this Overseas Department of France is a spectacular volcanic island with about 800,000 people, a third of whom are of Indian origin. The Indian origin people live like Europeans, think like Europeans, but have this deep desire to connect with India, the land of their ancestors. This 48-page magazine throws light on this lesser known place on the planet.
