A Memory of Partition

This short video interview on the BBC, giving one lady’s experience of Partition is fascinating.
I have heard some of the stories of what Mrs Saul’s grandparents went through during this time, but my frivolous blog isn’t the place to talk about their personal experiences. Unfortunately I don’t speak Punjabi or Urdu and my remaining grandparents-in-law don’t speak enough English to tell me what happened in their own words. Maybe they wouldn’t want to, like many British war veterans who don’t want to relive old memories?

    The BBC had an absolutely brilliant 1&1/2 hr programme on the partition on the night of the anniversary. Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims and the English were all interviewed. The interviews were touching and sad, very sad.
