Book Name: The Other Side of Silence: Voices from the Partition of India

By Urvashi Butalia

The partition of India in 1947 caused one of the most harrowing human convulsions in history: over 12 million people were displaced amidst a frenzy of murder, abduction  and rape on a massive scale. For decades these violent realities remained buried in silence, even though the memories of brutality never faded.  The author Urvashi Butalia’s book The Other Side of Silence: Voices from the Partition of India was the first major work to exhume the personal trauma of the Partition.  An undisputed classic, it meticulously locates the individual experiences and private pain at the heart of this cataclysmic event. Furthermore, Urvashi reveals how people on the margins of history—ordinary people, women, children, the lower castes, the untouchables—were affected by this upheaval.

In a passionate and stimulating new introduction, the author Urvashi examines not only recent developments in the expanding field of Partition studies but also the heart-breaking ways in which this colossal tragedy continues to impact our lives and what this means for the future of the Indian subcontinent.
