    Description:
    On the 550th Birth Anniversary of
    SRI GURU NANAK DEV JI
    Dedicated to the indefatigable spirit of perseverance of Australian Sikh Pioneers who by virtue of their dedication, commitment, honest livelihood, professional skills and services rendered to the people not only won over the hearts of Australian people but were also credited with introducing and establishing the Sikh Religion on the soil of Australia.
    This book examines the Sikh Migrants who migrated to Australia from the 1840’s until the start of the Immigration Restriction Act 1901 known as the White Australia Policy.  It explains the difficulties that they faced on arriving in Australia, their employment opportunities as well as their religious, social and sporting lives.
    It also explains how the largest self-funded migration of non-white people to Australia, overcame 19th Century Australian racist attitudes, and became well liked and respected members of the communities in which they lived. 
    Many of these Sikh Migrants returned to India after spending a number of years in Australia, and lived the rest of their lives in financial security, while others lived in Australia until they died, dependent upon the good graces of the many Australian friends they made, to care for the in their old age. Some Sikhs married or lived with white Australian or Aboriginal women who bore them children.  As a result of this they developed a family structure and enjoyed the comfort of a stable life.
