Abstract

The great Indian Independence and Partition were two sides of the same coin,  yet the euphoria of Independence   subsumed   the   pangs   of   Partition and relegated   the   narratives   of disruption, dislocation  and ruthless  violence  to the  deep chasms  of forgetfulness.  Though for majority of   Indians, Independence signified   liberation from  colonial  rule, for  the two  states   of Punjab and Bengal, the azadi was one of bewildering loss: of place and property, community, of stable relationships and   of   a   coherent   identity.  Over   eight million people crossed   the   newly created borders of these states while half  a million lost their lives  in   widespread   communal violence.
