India Partitioned : The Other Face of Freedom, Paperback / softback Book

India Partitioned : The Other Face of Freedom Paperback / softback

Description

The Partition of India cast its lengthy shadows on two generations of the subcontinent. Ordinary people across borders were sucked into its vortex as unconscious and innocent actors, as maddened mobs.

Drawing on short stories, poems, satirical writings, eye-witness accounts, and interviews, these two volumes document the anguish and sense of betrayal at the freedom gained.

These writings are a reminder of how partition cruelly displaced millions, divided India's past, wrecked its civilisational rhythm and unity and left behind a seemingly constant legacy of hostility, bitterness, and rancour between the people and government of India and Pakistan.
