In 1898, the New York Times wrote a glowing review of this particular service in India. Closer home, the Bombay Mill Owners Association wasn’t so pleased - The service was so popular amongst its workers, that it led to work disruptions. But what has all this got to do with the hill city of Dehradun. This week, in the second episode of the series, The Great Migration, we delve into this now forgotten service, that once accounted for 2-3% of India’s GDP. And we also uncover a curious aspect of migration which exists to this day, maybe even in your passport, which all goes back to 19th century transatlantic slave trade. Tune in, and uncover this aspect of migration in India, and what it teaches us about yearning and finding our own ‘Dehradun’.
