These occasionally written pieces recount the feelings of separation and belonging, fear and intolerance, evoked time and again mostly through the memory of the partitions of the Indian subcontinent, first in 1947 and then in 1971.

Narrated in London, these occasionally written pieces present the simple stories of peoples’ experiences shaped by larger events and upheavals in the recent history of South Asia.

Exploring a range of issues surrounding political and cultural assimilation faced by the South Asian Diaspora in the West, Unfinished Histories falls in the twilight zone between fiction and non-fiction.
