Partition: A Human Tragedy is aimed at showing how six Indian English novelists of Indian subcontinent interpreted various versions of partition. The significant aspect of this book is that Partition literature has not been understood as merely representing the violence and bloodbath that took heavy toll at the time of Independence of India and Pakistan, but it deals with the problems of migration, the resultant rejection and animosity in their second home.

Partition affected millions of people and changed the map of the sub - continent. The countries of the region still live under its s hadows. Abstract: The present paper through a study of the selected novels of Bapsi Sidhwa tries to vocalise the nature of the subjection of women in postcolonial South Asia, a space marked by a history of gender based violence or exploitation, sexual stereotyping, and gender roles. Bapsi Sidhwa through her novels tries to combat this attitude of society towards women.

The partition of India in 1947 was the division of British India into two independent dominion states, the Union of India and the Dominion of Pakistan

The partition of India in 1947 was the division of British India into two independent dominion states, the Union of India and the Dominion of Pakistan. The Union of India is today the Republic of India; the Dominion of Pakistan is today the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the People's Republic of Bangladesh. The partition involved the division of two provinces, Bengal and the Punjab, based on district-wise non-Muslim or Muslim majorities.

Lohit Kumar Ray. The book presents a thematic study of the Indian English novels written on the theme of partition of the Indian subcontinent that took place in 1947. The intention here is to examine the traumatic experience of the partition and its effect on the human beings. It analyzes also causes of the fateful decision of the partition that forced the millions of people to migrate and face the barbarity of the communal frenzy which results the numerous atrocities, rapes, abductions and violence.

Before partition, there had been widespread violence, primarily Muslims . Long before the British Raj, the Indian Subcontinent had been an ever-changing map of conquest and cobbled empires.

Before partition, there had been widespread violence, primarily Muslims against Hindus and vice versa, but some of it involved Sikhs. That violence intensified after August 15th, and ethnic cleansing was conducted in many areas. So overall, if you're going to read one introductory book on partition, I think this book is a great one. It does enough to set context & tell the larger story. A single India has never existed on the multi-ethnic, polyglot Subcontinent, save in the superficial sense of evanescent lines on maps.
