Rajesh Angal had recommended a book 'Kitne Pakistan' by Kamleshwar. It's English translation, by Ameena Kazi Ansari, 'Partitions' was available. This book talks about the circumstances that led to and impacts that followed the partition of India.
A book of serious nature where history is discussed from the voice of various characters including political leaders, kings, common men, breeze, rivers like Ganga and Jamuna, desert, culture, cities like Hiroshima and Nagasaki, etc. Though the auth claims to be unbiased, I find that at the final court of justice, no hindu king is called to clarify himself, while Mughal kings keep justifying their acts. Very clearly, Aurangzeb has to justify his acts while his brother, a failed Dara Shikoh, is highly pitied upon.
The book also claims that India was always ruled united, be it Mughals, Turks, or any other king who visited / ruled India, and that only the British wanted it to be split to ensure that India be busy with its internal issues. The book also claims that some of the pages of Baburnama were removed, by the English, to make Indians believe that Babur built the Baburi Masjid after demolishing a Hindu temple.
The views of the author, Kamleshwar, flow through the voices of various characters and I prefer to see this as a fiction, rather than a history book. Surprised that Kamleshwar got Sahitya Akademi Award for 'Kitne Pakistan' in 2003.
Btw, Kamleshwar has also written scripts for a couple of Hindi movies and serials including the 'Chandrakanta', which was pulled off air by Doordarshan due to certain controversies.
Verdict: Read it once
