The fact is, both sides killed. Both shot and stabbed and speared and clubbed. Both tortured. Both raped. It is the summer of 1947. But Partition does not mean much to the Sikhs and Muslims of Mano Majra, a village on the border of India and Pakistan.

When a train arrives, carrying the bodies of dead Sikhs, the village is transformed into a battlefield, and neither the magistrate nor the police are able to stem the rising tide of violence.

“In the summer of 1947, when the creation of the new state of Pakistan was formally announced, ten million people—Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs—were in flight, By the time the monsoon broke, almost a million of them were dead, and all of northern India was in arms, in terror, or in hiding. The only remaining oases of peace were a scatter of little villages lost in the remote reaches of the frontier. One of these villages was Mano Majra.” It is a place, Khushwant Singh goes on to tell us at the beginning of this classic novel, where Sikhs and Muslims have lived together in peace for hundreds of years. Then one day, at the end of the summer, the “ghost train” arrives, a silent, incredible funeral train loaded with the bodies of thousands of refugees, bringing the village its first taste of the horrors of the civil war. Train to Pakistan is the story of this isolated village that is plunged into the abyss of religious hate. It is also the story of a Sikh boy and a Muslim girl whose love endures and transcends the ravages of war.

In ihrem vielfach ausgezeichneten, bereits in mehr als 20 Sprachen übersetzten Roman erzählt Tahmima Anam die Geschichte einer Familie: eine Geschichte von Liebe und Revolution, von Glaube, Hoffnung und unerwartetem Heldentum. Im Chaos des Krieges in Bangladesch muß jeder wählen, zu welcher Seite er gehören will. Rehana Haque hat zunächst nur ein Ziel: ihre Kinder zu retten. Und schließlich muß auch sie eine schwere Entscheidung treffen. Dhaka, Ostpakistan, am Vorabend des Unabhängigkeitskrieges. Rehana Haque ist glücklich: Wie jedes Jahr feiert sie die Rückkehr ihrer Kinder Maja und Sohail, die sie nach dem Tod ihres Mannes zu verlieren fürchtete. Im Garten ihres Hauses blühen die Rosen, ihr Spezialgericht Biryani ist gelungen, die Kinder, bald erwachsen, sind noch immer der Mittelpunkt ihres Lebens und erwidern die Liebe der Mutter respektvoll und zärtlich. Doch in der Stadt brodelt es. Der bengalische Oppositionsführer Mujib hat die Wahl gewonnen, aber die pakistanische Regierung weigert sich, ihn anzuerkennen. Aufruhr liegt in der Luft. Maja und Sohail, die in der Studentenbewegung für die Unabhängigkeit engagiert sind, zieht es zu ihren Freunden. Doch keiner von Rehanas Gästen ahnt, was folgen wird. Der Freiheitskampf in Bangladesch wird von Pakistan unfaßbar grausam unterdrückt. Und das Leben von Rehana und ihrer Familie wird von Grund auf erschüttert werden.

A comienzos de 1947 los territorios del Indostán que dependían del Imperio Británico alcanzan la independencia. El territorio continental de la India queda dividido en dos países: India y Pakistán (de mayoría musulmana); el odio religioso se extiende por ambos produciendo centenares de miles de muertos y generando un conflicto que todavía perdura. Cuando en Mano Majra, un pequeño pueblo al norte de la India junto a la frontera con Pakistán, el prestamista local es asesinado, todas las sospechas recaen sobre un conocido ladrón sij, enamorado de una musulmana. Las habladurías que provoca el crimen, la llegada de un tren cargado de cadáveres y los rumores de revueltas en otras partes del país terminan enrareciendo la convivencia en el pueblo. Este clásico de la literatura india, publicado por primera vez en 1956, nos recuerda lo sencillo que es incitar al odio y romper la armonía en comunidades que han convivido pacíficamente durante siglos. Tren a Pakistán es una emotiva novela que nos ayuda a comprender la riqueza y complejidad de la India y la de una región de cuya estabilidad depende, en gran medida, la paz mundial.

Independence for India, in 1947, came with a price: division on the basis of religion. In the communal riots that followed, hundreds of thousands were killed and millions rendered homeless. And the tragic legacy of Partition haunts the subcontinent even today. Memories of Madness brings together works by three leading writers who witnessed the insanity of those months. Train to Pakistan, Khushwant Singh’s debut novel, tells the story of a village in Punjab, Mano Majra, where Muslims and Sikhs have co-existed peacefully, till one night in 1947, when a ghost train arrives from across the new border, bearing corpses of butchered refugees. As mistrust grows into hate and the people of Mano Majra lose their humanity, it is left to an outcast, a Sikh dacoit in love with a Muslim girl, to avert another carnage. Bhisham Sahni’s Tamas is a harrowing portrait of a small frontier town in the grip of communal frenzy. Based on the author’s own experience of riots in Rawalpindi, this celebrated novel describes the murder and mayhem triggered off by the discovery of a pig’s carcass outside a mosque. The matchless stories of Saadat Hasan Manto, the greatest short story writer in the Urdu language, round off this collection. In addition to his most famous story, ‘Toba Tek Singh’, the selection includes ten other sketches and stories in which Manto turns his unflinching gaze on history's criminals, victims and unlikely heroes. As moving as they are disturbing, the stories in this volume are of immense relevance in these times, for they constitute a chilling reminder of the consequences of communal politics.
