Riveting stories from the heart of the Vancouver Sikh experience. Set among people who emigrated in the late twentieth century, facing racial animosity and economic insecurity, and moving forward as their lives became more settled, Fauji Banta Singh gives us rare glimpses into the private lives of the Sikh community - the successes and failures, the growing and painful irrelevance of the old, changing values and the conditions of the women, the place of religion and tradition, and the ever-present echoes of distant Indian politics and national extremism. Unique and powerful, brutally honest yet compassionate, these stories present us with characters that are empathetic and vividly real.

Sadhu Binning was born in India and immigrated to Canada in 1967. His published works include two books of poetry and two collections of short stories. He edited a literary monthly Watno Dur from 1977 to 1982 and currently co edits Watan, a Punjabi quarterly. Sadhu is the founding member of the Vancouver Sath and Ankur collective. He has co-authored and produced a number of plays about the South Asian Community. He teaches Punjabi at the Asian Studies Department at U.B.C.

"Fauji Banta Singh and Other Stories portrays the migrant Punjabi, Sikh community in vivid colors and vibrant voices with empathy and irony. Binning captures these South Asian arrivants in their chequered humanity as they wrestle with rural customs in an urban culture, gender and generational divides, and homeland ghosts of the distant and recent past. " - Amritjit Singh, Langston Hughes Professor of English, Ohio University
Praise for No More Watno Dur: "Sadhu Binning's poetry gently provokes and evokes. He uses the tools of language, both Punjabi and English, to guide the reader through a private journey of public relevance. Rooted in a history of cultural and labour activism, this collection questions our notions of home, family and community. No More Watno Dur (Watno Dur means "far away from the mother land") firmly establishes Binning as an essential poet who must be read in order to understand this continually unfolding experience of home and homeland in the Western world..." -- Zool Suleman, Editor, Rungh Magazine
