Description:
Dotted across homes in Britain are people who were witnesses to one of the most tumultuous events of the twentieth century. Yet their memory of India's Partition has been shrouded in silence. Kavita Puri's father was twelve when he found himself one of the millions of Sikhs, Hindus, and Muslims caught up in the devastating aftermath of a hastily drawn border. He remained silent - like so many - about the horrors he had seen for seventy years. When her father finally spoke out, opening up a forgotten part of Puri's family history, she was compelled to seek out the stories of South Asians who were once subjects of the British Raj, and are now British citizens. Determined to preserve these accounts - of the end of empire and the difficult birth of two nations - Puri records these first-hand testimonies, as well as those of their children and grandchildren whose lives are shaped by Partition's legacy.
