About the product
Rawalpindi in the first few decades of the twentieth century is a prosperous, busting town, witnessing the first stirring of the freedom movement. It is in this place and time that a delicate child grows into adolescence, at the heart of an unusual family. Adulthood and the horrific business of Partition drive the young man to Bombay, then Ambala and finally Delhi. As he gathers life experience, he hones his politics and talent as writer.we observe the making of one of the icons of modern Indian literature: Bhisham Sahni. In addition to being the story of Sahnis life and art, Todays Pasts also chronicles the great cultural high points of modern India: the IPTA, the Progressive Writers Association, the Nayi Kahani movement. The stars of Hindi and Urdu literature enter and exit the text as friends and familiars. In Bhisham Sahnis hands a life story is transformed into a history of our present one life bears witness to the tale of nation.
