Jhelum Se Jamna Tak - A Refugee Remembers…
Darshan Lal Khosla is from an Indian generation whose existence was irrevocably altered by the Partition of India and Pakistan. People were forced to leave their lives behind and devise a plan to begin a new one for themselves and their families with whatever resources they could gather.
This book is a detailed description of a few tales shared by one such refugee, highlighting various occasions in his life and the things he had to do to maintain his family.
Take a look into the narrative created for the people to learn and understand the raw life his generation had to go through some of Darshan Lal's memories spanning across his life of over 85 years.
About the Author: I was born in the lovely, hilly NWFP region, which is now in Pakistan. I was only five years old when my family moved to Kashmir. But because of the events surrounding the partition in 1947, we were also forced to flee Kashmir. Due to the scarcity of significant sources of money, my childhood in India had been exceedingly challenging. During our early years in India, I desperately wanted to continue my education, but I had to put the needs of the family before everything else. At this point in my life, I am over 85 years old and my death is inevitable. Therefore, I'm writing down my life to let my family and well-wishers know more about the unseen experiences we had to have, in the hopes that it may help others see things differently in their own lives.
