Translating Partition

Front Cover
Katha, 2001 - India - 238 pages
0 Reviews
This collection is about those on the wrong side of the border. Apart from offering a perspective on displaced people and communities, the stories talk about people as religious and linguistic minorities in post-Partition India and Pakistan. These narratives offer insights into individual experience, and break the silence of the collective sphere.
