A moving and emotional story about one girl's adoption

While growing up in an Indian orphanage, Asha Miró dreamed of someday being adopted. Her wish finally came true, but only at the misfortune of another. When Asha was six, a Catalan family was in the process of adopting twins but one of the children suddenly fell ill and died. This twist of fate led the family to adopt Asha instead. Leaving a life of poverty behind, Asha was given a second chance.

Twenty-one years later, Asha takes a heart-wrenching trip back to India to uncover her native roots. Full of unexpected encounters, this adventure informs and touches Asha beyond her expectations. She visits her old orphanage, speaks with her former caretakers, explores the land that she might not have ever left, and comes to form a more solid identity. Yet one trip is not enough. Eight years later she returns. This time she journeys to the small rural village where she was born. As well as uncovering the details behind her adoption, she finds the only living member of her immediate Indian family: a sister she never knew she had.

Read information about the author

Ebook Daughter of the Ganges: The Story of One Girl's Adoption and Her Return Journey to India read Online! Asha Miró nació un 7 de noviembre de 1967 en la India, y allí vivió hasta los seis años , hasta que la adoptaron los que son sus padres hoy día.

Sus primeros años de vida transcurrieron en un orfanato de Bombay, concretamente desde los tres hasta los seis años de edad. En la actualidad Asha vive en Barcelona desde 1974, donde ha ejercido como maestra y donde actualmente trabaja en el departamento de comunicación del Fórum de Barcelona 2004.

Ahora, gracias a la editorial Lumen y La Magrana en su versión en catalán, tenemos la oportunidad de leer la intensa historia de su vida y las dificultades de adopción, de una pequeña que en las escaleras del orfanato de Bombay insistía en que quería unos padres.

Asha creció junto a sus padres adoptivos y a una hermana, otra niña india que le había precedido en la adopción. Estudió magisterio y piano. Sin embargo, la ilusión por visitar su país la llevó a dar el gran paso en 1995, cuando acababa de cumplir 27 años.

"La hija del Ganges" es el hermoso testimonio de una experiencia insólita, que significó el reencuentro de esta mujer con una tierra dura y sorprendente. Junto a las palabras, a modo de diario, de Asha, el libro intercala las notas emitidas por la madre de la autora del libro. En estas notas se reflejan los temores, las dudas y el amor de unos padres que aquí en España esperaban a una niña como llegada del cielo, y que luego tuvieron que guiar sus primeros pasos en un mundo y una cultura totalmente nuevos para ellas.

El libro de Asha Miró son unas memorias llenas de ternura que hablan de una experiencia tan importante como la adopción y un viaje al pasado, para entender el verdadero valor de una mujer que verdaderamente sabe cuanto puede costar conseguir la felicidad y mirar la vida con una sonrisa.
