The focus of the lecture were three Indo-Jewish authors, two in English and one in Hindi: Nissim Ezechiel, Esther David and Sheila Rohekar. While Ezechiel and Rohekar have more or less always stayed in India, David is a returnee after many years in Israel and France, christening her return to her mother country as her personal Aliya – the Jewish return to the land of origin, mostly used for the emigration to Israel.
