Product description

Review

'This book brings a fresh dimension to the "history from beneath" approach to the Partition and its legacy. It shows that there can be no single Partition migration account; there are as many accounts as the people involved.'- Ian Talbot

'Part memoir, part social history, Aanchal Malhotra evokes one of the world's great tragedies in moving, beautiful prose woven through everyday objects treasured as relics of a shattered age.' - Shashi Tharoor

'What a clever idea - to tell the history of the Partition through objects that refugees brought or left behind. Aanchal artfully weaves travel, memory and materials, reminding us why India is one of the world's greatest storytelling cultures.' - Gurcharan Das

'This book brings out of the folds of time an understanding too tender to accuse, too strong to forget. It is the story of material beings - I shall not call them "things" - that cannot be narrated in words, nor painted in pictures. Only shared, in the Braille of their own embossing. Reading it is a redemption.' - Gopalkrishna Gandhi

'Aanchal has breathed new life into the history of the Partition with her unique storytelling format. A debut book that is poignant and powerful, it places common people above competing nationalisms. It is the extraordinary lives of ordinary Indians and Pakistanis that hold out hope for the future.' - Rajdeep Sardesai
