Author(s): Kallol Gangopadhyay
Abstract: It has been sixty seven years since the partition of India in 1947 and our country still toils to regain from the aftermath. Years have been lived with the pangs of Freedom and the incidents have carried its visible toll on suffering millions. Textual evidences show that the gamut of writings available on Partition refers to the exploitation in the western frontier and very little has been written about happenings in the eastern frontier in India. This paper attempts to critique on one of the most vivid personal accounts of a refugee writer descending to India from Bangladesh in his book Deshbhager Smriti (a series of 4 volumes) written between 2005-2010.
