Saheb Bibi Golam
by Bimal Mitra

The Essence of Camphor
by Naiyer Masud

by Sarat Chandra Chattaopadhyay Description

A tale of two cities, of shifting locales, of migration of Lucknowis resettling in Karachi and creating their own world there. It depicts the predicament of Post-Partition refugees in a way that has never been done before.

A powerful story of nostalgia and recreation of a beloved past, of a sane madness and insane reality. The author explores and perceives cultural and psychological truths in ordinary events of life and he does so emphatically.

Joginder Paul captures the essential duality of a migrant's psyche, at home and yet not fully at ease, living in the present yet constantly looking back at what once was…they are the victims of history. He has obviously trod similar ground and experienced at first hand the bewildering uncertainty of the migrant sensibility.
