The author, Subhash Chopra, has drawn inspiration from the story written by the late writer Sadat Hasan Manto which in a way showed how useless was the chasm that came about by putting Muslims and Hindus asunder. Even more attractive is the account of Chopra’s own visit to his native town in Pakpattan, once on the banks of river Sutlej, where he was greeted as a long-lost son. If there is hope for India and Pakistan coming nearer, as he states like America and Canada, it is from this chapter. The rest is old history recounted by men and women going through ups and downs of at least India wanting to do Pakistan some good . It has not been explained to the people of Pakistan what good it can do them by living in a state of war of whatever means with India. The hope lies only in the hearts melting away in love on both sides of the border.
