No Woman's Land (Women from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh Write On The Partition Of India)
No Woman's Land (Women from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh Write On The Partition Of India)
Description
From the Jacket

Never before has a single volume featured non-fiction writing by women from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh on the Partition of India. Here, for the first time, are Ismat Chughtai, Sara Sulery, Anis Kidwai, Phulrenu Guha, Meghna Guhathakurta, Shehla Shibli, Manikuntala Sen, Kamlaben Patel and many others, speaking and writing about communalism and literature; what they learnt from refugees; what Partition means to them 50 years later; and how they define themselves-Hindus? Muslims? Indians? Pakistanis? Bengalis? All of these or none? Either or neither? Not-Indian-not-Pakistani? Bangladeshi not Pakistani? Above all, their accounts raise that most troubling question: do women have a country?

An unusual mix of memoirs, interviews, reminiscences and reflective essays, this anthology is the first attempt to present women's perspective on the Partition of India, based on the experience of three countries.

Ritu Menon is a publisher and writer. She is co-author of Borders and Boundaries: Women in India's Partition, and of Unequal Citizens: A Study of Muslim Women in India; and editor, Unmaking the Nation: a Three-Country Perspective on the Partition of India (forthcoming).

I just got the package delivered. The books look in good condition from outside. Thanks again. It is always a pleasure doing business with you.
Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
