Review: From start to finish my heart was pounding. It was a journey of heartbreak and hope rolled into one. A story that will really hit home of the devastation that happened during partition told through the eyes of Amar and Ibrahim. @SwapnaHaddow brilliantly written.@scholasticuk

Theirs is a home of love and safety, a refuge from the violent events taking shape in the nation. Then their father is killed during a riot, and even their neighbors turn against them, bringing the events of their country closer to home. As Priya determinedly pursues her career goal, Deepa falls deeply in love with a Muslim, causing her to break with her family.

  • Waterstones The Psychological Impact of the Partition of India

    Price: £45.00

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: The first of its kind, this book studies the psychological impact of Partition through medical and psychiatric perspectives. The Partition of India was a partitioning of minds as much as it was a geographical division. But there has been little discussion in mental health discourse on the psychological scars it caused. This book examines the partitioning of human experience and its impact on social life and psychological health. The chapters track, through various approaches, the breakdown of civic life and society during the cataclysmic event, the collapse of medical services, the violence against citizens and the reflection of these events in writings of that era. The book draws attention to the urgent need for a humane understanding of persons with mental illness and psychological distress in the context of their lived history as much as their sociocultural identities and roots.
