Made into the film Earth-1947 by Canadian director Deepa Mehta, Bapsi Sidhwa's book takes the readers back to the partition of the subcontinent in 1947 as narrated by Lenny, the polio-stricken daughter of an affluent Parses family in Lahore. Lenny sees Muslims, Hindus, Christians, Parsees and Sikhs fight for their land and their lives and is an unwilling witness to the trauma that bears the crux of the Partition tale becoming, like many others, the victime of her religion. Bapsi Sidhwa, Pakistan’s like many others, the victim of her religion. Bapsi Sidhwa, Pakistan's most gifted yet down-to-earth novelist, resurrects the story of partition, which is also relevant today as a tool of history and a chilling reminder of the ethnic hatred that still stalks the subcontinent.
