Out of the Ashes

Description Large scale migration of population, generally, either follows a natural calamity or war. But the migration of people from West to East and East to West Punjab took place following India's partition in 1947. Around forty lac Hindu and Sikh peasants and traders migrated from Pakistan to India in Punjab. It was a gigantic task to resettle and rehabilitate this displaced population. The author, being at the helm of affairs in this task, narrates the process of accommodating such a large population on temporary, quasi-temporary and finally permanent basis on the evacuee land, and urban property. The author's account is comprehensive, well-documented and illustrated with photographs. The whole account reflects the author's own integrity, devotion and commitment to this humanitarian cause. The book is a chronicle of the pain, suffering, and grit of Punjab peasants who passed through this ordeal[edit]
