The partition of India and the associated bloody riots inspired many creative minds in India and Pakistan to create literary/cinematic depictions of this event. While some creations depicted the massacres during the refugee migration, others concentrated on the aftermath of the partition in terms of difficulties faced by the refugees in both side of the border. Even now, more than 60 years after the partition, works of fiction and films are made that relate to the events of partition.
Mirza Hamid Baig’s short story Katak Ka Udhar is, also, can be included in the literature related to the partition and its effects on the lives of the people living both sides.
I am, here, going to present you Katak Ka Udhar. Hope you will like it. Here you go!!
