Schooner, Luscars, Coolies, opium, girimityas
Sea of Poppies is a novel that originally starts with its attention centred on the plight of the Indian immigrants transported for the British sugar plantations on the islands like Mauritius, Fiji and Trinidad and ends with the discovery of the linked histories of the travel of opium, lascars, and migrant labour. The stories of the placeholders such lascars, coolies, indentured labourers in the schooner Ibis is a great exposure and major discovery of Ghosh, from the linked histories of the travel of opium, lascars, and migrant labour. It is the discovery which has given a large and valid platform for the enactment of many instances related with opium trade in the novels of Ghosh’s trilogy.
