Karen Dosanjh’s book Untold Stories: The South Asian Pioneer Experience in BC (British Columbia) has been adapted into a documentary Hidden Histories which showcases the historic milestones of the first South Asians who migrated from India to Canada. The documentary covers the arrival of South Asians in the early 1900s, to the rampant anti-Asian sentiments they faced, to key events that led to the disenfranchisement of the early settlers along with untold stories on Canadian immigration bans and other discriminatory actions that hindered the basic citizens’ rights of the South Asian pioneers.
Harbhajan Singh, founder of Samra Produce, has been America’s “King of Okra”. The movie covers the stories of Harbhajan Singh who came to Southern California in 1985 as a trained agronomist with a master’s degree in economics. He saw California as ideal for growing the kind of Indian specialties–okra, eggplant, bitter melon, beans–that he ate as a child. His success reflects a broader reality in the nation’s produce market. As ethnic populations–and interest in ethnic food–grow across the country, so do the opportunities for entrepreneurs like Harbhajan Singh.
