Abstract
Renée Sarojini Saklikar was 23 years old when her aunt and uncle were murdered on June 23, 1985 in the bombing of Air India Flight 182. In her first book of poems, children of air india: un/authorized exhibits and interjections Saklikar presents a powerful and deeply personal collection. These poems offer a fresh perspective on a heartbreaking chapter in Canada’s history—the Air India Flight 182 that crashed and killed all 329 passengers including 82 children. The aftermath of our country’s worst act of terrorism is both over-reported and under-represented in our national psyche.
