Description

Seventy years after the violence and trauma of Partition, the living memories of that time are starting to disappear as the women and men who lived through it are reaching the end of their lives. Many survivors have not wanted to speak, preferring to put aside the memories of trauma and violence; others have spoken, but frequently into a void, as their children, busy with their own lives, have preferred to not listen. Every now and then, survivors have found it difficult, almost unattainable to speak, for there are frequently no words to describe that which is so unspeakable.

The results of a memory project, this book turns its attention to the affect of the Partition of India in Bengal. In a set of moving and revealing dialogues, it brings together different generations who together resolve long buried memories and an important, frequently heart-wrenching stories of a traumatic moment in the history of India.
