Abstract

Literature with its therapeutic powers has been able to produce catharsis for its readers. The fear, the trauma and the pain experienced during the partition violence by the multitudes is transmuted by literature into purging narratives. The portraiture of the historical facts woven into fiction produces a micro-history of an individual's or a group of individual's experiences into the representative of the macro-history of a nation. While Khushwant Singh through Train to Pakistan published in 1956, portrays the partition violence of 1946-47 after a decade of its inception in the lives of the South Asians, Mahesh Dattani encapsulates the violence of the Gujarat riots of 2002 with the backdrop of partition violence through Final Solutions published in 2005. In this manner these two texts encapsulate the past, present and future as the time referents of partition violence. Khushwant Singh’s, Train to Pakistan recounts the rupture and the metamorphosis wrought in the lives of the people of Punjab by the partition violence. Mahesh Dattani’s, Final Solutions presents the violent conflicts between the Muslims and the Hindus in independent India leading to the victimisation of both the communities. The overtones of the partition violence can be traced in the communal violence triggered in Gujarat.
