Taqseem – Writings on Partition by Manto Siyaah Haashiay – Gurmukh Singh ki Vasiyat
Siyah Haashiyay is a set of 32 vignettes, each reflecting ironical perspectives on human nature in the background of the Partition violence.
Gurmukh Singh ki Vasiyat draws a silent and chilling picture of the circumstances of one family as it finds itself isolated in increasingly troubled times.
