Abstract
It has become a matter of great concern that what we have achieved with the partition of the Indian sub-continent. Almost all the scholars and historians from both the nations have started asking question about this horrible, unplanned and homicide partition. After the partition the Islamic nation of Pakistan emerged as a sovereign nation while India was declared ‘a nation for all’. During the process of the settlement of the migrated people from and in both the sides, at least 10 million people were displaced and as many as one million were killed in the violence. The Indian government had to stretch itself to the maximum to give relief to and resettle and rehabilitate the nearly six million refugees from Pakistan who had lost their all there and whose world had been turned upside down. The task took some time but it was accomplished. It is now well established that the “state” (in either its colonial or post-colonial forms) was not a rational bystander to social violence, but complicit in producing and organizing it. The recent studies have placed the refugees as a central subject of analysis in relation to partition. The scholars have started examine Partition’s refugees as a new kind of political subject or as a new social form which shapes the process of post-colonial state formation, rather than victims of the violence that created mass displacement. In the present paper I propose the reminiscences and evocations related to the grounds of their displacement and rehabilitation and the cultural aftermath.
