: The second volume continues the discussion on partition in the eastern region, focusing more fully on both East Bengal and West Bengal. The editors have been guided by the intention ‘to incorporate as much of the Muslim voices and experiences often taking place on the other side of the divide, that is, erstwhile East Pakistan or present-day Bangladesh.’ They have also called attention to the lives of some Muslim women residing in West Bengal. Part I begins with short stories from both sides of the border, which share common themes of grief and conflict. Part II presents reminiscences that support the narrative of the short stories, offering stories of survival struggles. Part III, Interviews, capture the intricate nature of migration and of non-migration, covering Hindus who moved from East Bengal, Muslims of West Bengal who moved to East Pakistan and those who chose to remain. Part IV presents a screenplay of an elderly couple who return to their old home in Bangladesh. Part V takes the reader to interviews in the Permanent Liability camps that still hold the original refugees of partition, dwelling on the implications of the failures of state policy. Finally, Part VI offers extracts from state documents, 1946-57, on the themes of communal violence, of the abduction of women, and their rehabilitation. Author Bio: Jasodhara Bagchi is founder-director, School of Women’s Studies, Jadavpur University and former chairperson of the West Bengal Commission for Women; Subhoranjan Dasgupta is professor of Human Sciences, Institute of Development Studies Kolkata; Subhasri Ghosh is Publications Coordinator of Swayam, Kolkata.
