THE PROJECT OBJECTIVE
EURASIANS AT THE GRASSROOTS is an attempt to record stories regarding the Eurasians and the memories of Eurasians. Its purpose is to collect as many short stories as possible by Eurasians, about Eurasians and for Eurasians, no matter where they are, and to have it published as a collective work by different contributors.
It is intended for the publication to consist of collection of short stories about the background, history, culture and heritage of the average Eurasian family. It will include stories from the poor fisherman or office clerk to any Eurasian family who held some post of distinction, and ALL in between. It can come from people who are in Malaysia or outside Malaysia, as well as written by Eurasians and even non-Eurasians, or even by those who consider themselves as Eurasians. It could be about the average and ordinary Eurasian family life and even memories of festivals, music, language, food, sports, war days, school days, neighbourhood, family circle and family history.
