The Bardais are among the Asians who arrived last fall after their expulsion from Uganda by President Idi Amin. They are among the happier what Immigration officials like to describe as one huge success. Of the who arrived look- ing for fewer than 400 are said to be still jobless.

Manisha Vyas is looking for- ward to a family reunion in Canada. A immacu- lately groomed Manisha was the only member of her family holding a British passport. She watched the rest of the family shipped off to ref- ugee camps in Europe and then boarded a plane alone for Can- ada. A former Manisha now works as a clerk in the accounts branch of an Ottawa department store. She has sponsored the family's entry into and they are set- tled in London. Manisha met her Rosemin on one of the 31 chartered planes the government used to bring the Asians here. They decided to come to where Rose- min works as a keypunch op- erator in a data centre.
