(25663-25663-1-1---0) At a time when India and Pakistan are both reeling under terror attacks and hysterical talk of an impending war, it is important to take stock of where we have reached, individually and as part of the Indian subcontinent; sixty years after the two nations were carved out as two distinct entities. This volume of essays by writers from both sides of the border attempts to do just that. As the editor, Ira Pande, says in her introduction, 'There is a balance here between the 'hard' topics (politics, economy, diplomacy, religion et al) and 'soft' (music, crafts, language, cricket, and cinema) to bring out the full range of our engagement with each other. 'The historical swamp that is Urdu, the strategic wilderness of the Rann of Kutch, the complex manoeuvrings of nuclear politics, the emotional rollercoaster of encounters experienced and relived, the difficulty of reconciling the idea of Pakistan with the importance accorded to pluralism within India-every single essay in this collection examines an aspect of the India-Pakistan experience with a clear and unflinching gaze. Lived experience, shared concerns, food and travel, nostalgia and analysis, and an extraordinary selection of previously unpublished photographs from the ‘40s and 50s' make this an unusual compilation on the subject of two nations forever in love and hate with each other.
