Partition's Post-amnesias: 1947, 1971 and Modern South Asia
"Placing the historical ruptures of India's partition in 1947 and the breakup of Pakistan in 1971 within a single frame, this book challenges the reader to look beyond the easy assumptions of the post-partition selves constructed by nationalist paradigms, Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi. Deftly interweaving primary materials and personal memory with the inter-generational history of her divided family, the author spotlights the multiple silences, gaps and contestations of post-colonial South Asian national narratives to provide an alternative view of nation-building attempts that have been either maginalized or forgotten in the process of selective nationalist remembering."--Page 4 of cover.
