About this submission

The story-script is an essay into the life of a family ravaged by war. It is a work of fiction, but their lives are hauntingly more real than ours if I can presumably call that out; as their hopes live behind their blindspots.

I come from a family traumatized for years, by one of the worst and the least written-about exodus of men and women when the states of India and Pakistan were created. Though I don’t claim to understand strife, I have always borne it as the pain from my grandparents’ stories.
