A Diary of the Partition Days

Description The partition of India was the most traumatic event both for the Hindus/Sikhs and Muslims. It let out communal frenzy with so much intensity that it took heavy toll on human life and property. The contents of this diary written by an eminent and renowned Sikh historian Dr. Ganda Singh record the day to day ghastly events of arson and violence between April 1, 1947 and January 16, 1948 with a gap of only three months. He holds the Muslim League and its militant cadres responsible for setting a spark to the communal tinder box which resulted in a large scale conflagration. These notings give an eye-witness account of the tragic events of partition days. The diary makes an excellent and authentic reference material for the scholars and researchers of Punjab history.[edit]
