Train To Pakistan (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 188

Train To Pakistan shows what it must have been for the people caught in the middle of the Partition, when a country is divided along communal lines

Summary Of The Book

The Partition in history is a record of a point in time when the country was split apart along religious lines. It is an abstract piece of history for most people. While many books have documented the Partition and the violence surrounding it, most have focused on the social and political causes, and analyzed it as a collection of abstract data. Train To Pakistan is one of the books that focuses on the human drama, the real suffering of the people caught in the middle.

Mano Majra is a village that suddenly becomes part of a border between two countries. The population of the village is predominantly Sikh and Muslim. When news of communal riots and killings reach the village, the different communities express their support for each other and swear to defend one another. However, external influences are just waiting around the corner to disturb this idyllic harmony.

A train filled with the massacred bodies of Hindus and Sikhs arrives at Mano Majra. Slowly, passions gets stoked up, especially by the influx of refugees from the newly created Pakistan. They have tales of horror to tell, and the passions of Sikhs and Hindus of the village are stirred up.
Vested interests, including that of the village magistrate’s, stir up the flames. Hindus and Sikhs who just recently swore to stand by their Muslim neighbors now turn against them. Caught in all this are Juggut Singh and Iqbal. Juggut is a criminal, while Iqbal is a western educated intellectual who is on a mission to reform society. The common thread that binds them together is that they are both thrown into jail as suspects in a murder.

Ram Lal, a local moneylender, has been murdered. Ram Lal was a Hindu and this is used by subversive elements to incite violence against Muslims. The police, in a desperate attempt to divert attention, arrest Iqbal and Juggut.

Meanwhile, as the violence escalates, a train arrives to take the Muslim population of the village en masse to Pakistan. But the rioters have no intention of letting the Muslims leave in peace.

A good read

Train to Pakistan , is an Indian author's fictional work, that does not pander to the exotic India image of the west. It was not intended for the Bookers prize. The characters and the plot is mostly straight. But in its simplicity, it exactly captured the minds of the peasants and the vast majority … (View complete review)

Goose-bump inducing

I read Train to Pakistan years ago, right back when I was in college. I can still never forget the novel, which is undoubtedly one of my favourite Indian novels in English.

Khushwant Singh is a daring story-teller. He manages to remain one of the few who refrain from much of the linguistic pomp, glamour, and political pretense that dogs Indian English writers.

His language is simple; his message is startling. The novel is based on the time when India won independence, and when the partition took place. Singh blends satire and compassion with heart felt anger: at the hypocrisy and cowardice o

Only Kushwant Singh can write a book like this.

This is my first purchase from flipkart. I am happy with flipkart's delivery. The packing was extremely good. It reached within three working days, well before the mentioned delivery date. No one can beat flipkart when it comes to the quality of delivery.
To say about this book, not many authors can write from their heart. Kushwant Singh is one who can do it all the time. The way he explains the nature of each character is breathtaking.
He has taken extra care to clearly paint our imagination about Mano-Majra. Kushwant's work are the best examples to prove the generation gap between current w

spellbound!!!

Time,season,wind, Government and many more change but kushwant singh ji's grip on explaining will remain a bench mark for all writers in India . OMG! the characters introduction , background , stories behind, situation and never the least climax is a master piece . We miss him now.

His works should be in syllabus of all Indian languages . Partition , who else can give insight about the pain,anxiety,cruelty,fear,bloodshed and other agonies to our generation , who just talk about trans music and social networking.

Sacrifice of many innocent people on either side - really it was bad time for

Train to Pakistan
The independence of India from Great Britain rule in 1947 was one of the most historic events in South Asia history. With the new found independence, India also inherited the age old problem between the Hindus and Muslims. Khushwant Singh tries to depict this time of chaos in his novel Train to Pakistan. The novel was based on this factious small town called Mano Majra in the summer of 1947 where Muslims, Hindus, and Sikhs have lived peacefully side by side for hundreds of years. After the partition of India, a bloody civil war breaks out
