THE LOST HOMESTEAD: MY MOTHER, PARTITION AND THE PUNJAB

Through her mother’s memories, accounts from her Indian family and her own research in both India and Pakistan, constitutional and human rights lawyer, Marina Wheeler, will explore how the peoples of these new nations struggled to recover and rebuild their lives. This evocative tale, weaving the story of Indian independence and the tragedy of the partition with that of her mother’s own escape from an unhappy marriage, is particularly timely given the current reassessment of colonialism.
