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. In her book, Partition Voices, Kavita Puri records a series of remarkable first-hand testimonies of Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims caught up in its devastating aftermath. Beginning with her own father’s story, Puri weaves a breathtaking tapestry of human experience over a period of seven decades that trembles with life; an epic of ruptured families and friendships, extraordinary journeys and daring rescue missions that reverberates with pain, loss and compassion.
