About the Book


Partition, despite seventy long years of its taking place, remains till date an event unsettled, unresolved, unpurged and unaccounted for in the historical, social, political and cultural psyche of the Indian sub-continent. The violence, massacre, bloodshed, trauma and the massive uprootings and ruptures that followed in its wake, constituted a prelude not just to the formation of new nations and to new structures of state and power, but to the transformation of the personal lives and intimate spheres of people the subcontinent over. Since then, nothing has remained the same and losses, the realization of the very magnitudes of which, are staggering, have been sung again and again. This volume, in bringing together different and contemporary critical approaches to Partition, is an attempt to re-open the idea of Partition for academic discussion and to offer new perspectives to its study.
