With the division of the Indian subcontinent in 1947 into India and Pakistan, thousands of families on both sides were forcibly uprooted from their homes, became landless in the land of their birth and sought shelter in rapidly improvised refugee camps. The tale of the unprecedented calamity is told in this book by one who was himself a victim of the sufferings that overwhelmed millions in the country.
