Welcome

Welcome to the website of the National Foundation for Hindustan Immigration (NSHI). The name of this website is taken from the Lalla Rookh complex that was promised by the Surinamese government on June 5, 1973 at the celebration and commemoration of 100 years of Hindustan Immigration in Suriname as a community center. The NSHI manages the Lalla Rookh complex but is less known under that name (NSHI). Lalla Rookh is the name of the sailing ship that brought the first British-Indian indentured servants to Suriname in 1873.

The name Lalla Rookh comes from the daughter of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb (1618-1707) and means: “Tulip-cheeked” (lala = tulip and rukh = cheek), the heroine from the well-known poem by the Irish poet Thomas Moore (1780- 1852).

The Lalla Rookh complex represents the descendants of the British Indian indentured servants as a symbol of daring, courage, hard and laborious labor, thrift and above all perseverance of their ancestors to build a sustainable life for their and in the new, strange and unknown country. their offspring.
