This book deals with problems faced by locals when migrants relocate. I have studied various aspects of relocation but have confined contents of this book only to issues Relocation caused in Mumbai, Pune, and Jamnagar. Basically it is light reading book and not meant to be a research material.

Official web page of the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights mentions a fact that “an estimated 232 million people currently live outside their country of origin, many having moved for a variety of reasons in which the search for protection and the search for opportunity are inextricably entwined.
Migration affects every region of the world, and many countries are now simultaneously countries of origin, destination, and transit. Large numbers of migrants today move between developing countries, and around 40 percent of the total global migrant population have moved to a neighbouring country within their region of origin.
Migrants are often to be found working in jobs that are dirty, dangerous and degrading (the 3 Ds). While for some migration is a positive and empowering experience, far too many migrants have to endure human rights violations, discrimination, and exploitation.
Yet, migrants contribute to economic growth and human development in both home and host countries and enrich societies through cultural diversity, fostering understanding and respect among peoples, cultures and societies. Migration is also an important means for migrants and their families to improve life conditions and realize their human rights.
While this book (Relocated) does not deal with any issues directly taken up by the United Nations, but is written after cross checking many other issues that are faced by re-settler immigrants and locals were outside re-settlers move in.
Relocated talks about local migration and not cross-country “immigration.” It covers issues concerning moral rights in as much as innocent destruction of legal and moral rights of migrants is concerned. Two major instances are given in comparison to what happened in America when children born to Asians in USA started having the same rights to vote, etc., as citizenship is normally considered by country of birth.
And, later grandchildren of these initial landed immigrants to USA began taking life seriously and came up in life with the result that Americans were sidetracked in many types of jobs, which were “taken” by American born Indians or other Asians. This according to me happened because local Americans took life for granted and did not work as hard as the landed immigrants.
They also enjoyed cheap labour because the landed immigrants and their first generation accepted all work they could do, and for very less charges or salary. They had to survive. Their children remained normal, but their grandchildren began equating them with local American kids, and began competing with them.
At that time, Americans were not careful and took obedience of outside re-settlers for granted. Soon, when these originally Asians started getting jobs in America (as perfectly qualified candidates who heard the same songs of Elvis Presley as they “talked like American, walked like American, looked like American, but theyyyyyy were not, devil in disguise, yes they were, not, devil in disguise.” (Parody of 1963 song by Elvis Presley of Tupelo, Mississippi, “(You’re The) Devil in Disguise (You Look Like And Angel….).”
After three decades or more, Americans realized that grandchildren of landed immigrants have started ‘taking’ all lucrative and highly paid jobs. They studied a lot and became qualified. Worked hard and gained good reputation. Did not mess around with college girls so boys did not notice them when they were studying, and when they worked hard and accepted to do any work that was offered, they did not charge much for services rendered. Initially, Americans liked this tendency of their original Asians.
Later, problems started cropping up when American born children of Asians lot started comparing them with local Americans. There was nothing but pure resentment, anger, and utter helplessness because the Japanese, Chinese, Indians, Pakistanis, Arabians, and many others captured good businesses, and jobs.
Similar situation was historically repeated in Mumbai when local migrants form Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar started flocking in Mumbai. This story discusses problems faced by locals when outside relocators invade their city for work and business. After discussing the situation of first local migrant in Mumbai, I have discussed the situation in Pune taking the year 2009 and the base. I have also quoted example of outside re-settlers in Moti Khawdi, near Jamnagar in Reliance Mega Project.
The unimaginable real estate escalation and sudden increase in salary and cost of freelance skilled workers such as carpenters, mechanic, painters, milk-man, daily wagers, tailors, plumber, drivers, mason, etc., was shocking and troublesome. When locals realized that outsiders moving in have money to spend, they began charging more. Cost of Evening Meal shot up by 200% and cost of taxis, autofare, hotels and all other things started increasing.
Concept of innocent destruction caused by the re-settlers is discussed. My basic premise is that it was ‘greed’ to earn more by doing ‘nothing’ that ruined the Jamnagar property owners, and Sumo Taxi owners, and not actions of Reliance Group. However, in all forms of relocation where the relocated brings in a lot of money, it is now clear that one section of society gain from re-settlers, whereas another faction loses or does not benefit at all by the advent of those who relocate for good.
Many human rights issues also arise when the relocated persons jam-packs everything including roads, and public utilities. This book does not have a legal base and it does not touch as many human rights issues, however, moral aspects are discussed.

Re: Relocated (e-book)

It is quite good.
Hope to see more of your writings.
It is serene and relaxing, but then the actual problems are understood by the strength of the portrayal.
