Balgobin is an elusive and often overlooked character in Indian-Guyanese folklore. Frequently portrayed as an unintelligent schoolboy, Balgobin confounds his educators by scraping through every test and challenge. The Balgobin Saga provides a re-introduction to this lovable character. It also reflects the lives of Indian immigrants in the first half of the 19th century and illustrates how the Indian-Guyanese dealt with the traumas and challenges of displacement.
