Acerca de


The story of the upheaval of the 1947 partition of India seen through the eyes of a Parsee girl growing up in Lahore. Through her relationships with her Hindu Ayah, the Muslim cook, the Sikh zoo attendant and the ice candy man, she shows how ordinary citizens reacted to the horrific turmoil.

Now Filmed as 1947, a motion picture by Deepa Mehta

Few novels have caught the turmoil of the Indian subcontinent during Partition with such immediacy, such wit and tragic power
