MIDNIGHT’S BORDERS: A PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF MODERN INDIA

MIDNIGHT’S BORDERS: A PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF MODERN INDIA

“By the end of my travels, I found myself not with one map of India, but many maps that looked far different from the one I thought I knew.”

India is a land of borders, its peripheries nestling against seven countries. Over seven years, across 9,000 miles, Suchitra Vijayan travelled these borderlands. The more she travelled, the clearer it became to her that local history and memory bear no resemblance to the political history of the nation that claims these lands and peoples. From the densely populated border that India shares with Bangladesh to the highly disputed one with Pakistan, the stories in this book engage with how people live, struggle, fight and survive.
