Abducted Not and Other Stories of Partition Holocaust

 
K.S. Duggal (Author)
Synopsis These are not mere stories.  They are echoes and re-echoes smeared with human blood…still left smouldering in K.S. Duggal's haunting memories of the Partition.  It was not just a political or geographical partition, it divided siblings from siblings, tore off children from parents, separated friends from friends-it was forced partition of human hearts.  This collection of stories, wrapped in poignant veil of agony is sure to wrench hearts, squeeze tears, kindle compassion and make for the milk to human kindness.
