Revisiting Saadat Hasan Manto

Memories of Partition

2012 was the birth centenary of Saadat Hasan Manto and was celebrated in Lahore, Karachi, New York, and his own "muse" Bombay (now Mumbai). This is an attempt to remember Partition by revisiting Manto's memories of the event documented in his Partition stories. These stories are valuable documents, indispensable for historians studying the human dimensions of that event. Such studies on the historical appraisal of literary works, based on memories and survivors' accounts, can provide important breakthroughs for a better understanding of the aftermath of the division of the country and can prove to be history's "alternate archive". A study of such literary writings needs to be included in the reference list for the study of Partition.
