'Every thoughtful person, concerned for the future of this country, needs to read this book.' - Prof. Irfan HabibYaadon ke Bikhre Moti, the Hindi translation of the bestselling Remnants of a Separation, is a unique attempt to revisit the Partition through objects that refugees carried with them across the border. These belongings absorbed the memory of a time and place, remaining latent and undisturbed for generations. They now speak of their owner's pasts as they emerge as testaments to the struggle, sacrifice, pain and belonging at an unparalleled moment in history. A string of pearls gifted by a maharaja, carried from Dalhousie to Lahore, reveals the grandeur of a life that once was. A notebook of poems, brought from Lahore to Kalyan, shows one woman's determination to pursue the written word despite the turmoil around her. The product of years of research, this book is an alternative history of the Partition - the first and only one told through material memory that makes the event tangible even seven decades later.
