The Partition of 1947 has influenced the works of an entire generation of writers, and continues to do so. Gulzar witnessed the horrors of Partition first-hand and it is a theme that he has gone back to again and again in his writings. Footprints on Zero Line brings together a collection of his finest writings – fiction, non-fiction and poems – on the subject. What sets it apart from other writings on Partition is that Gulzar’s unerring eye does not stop at the events of 1947 but looks at how they continue to affect our lives to this day.
HarperCollins has published this book which is written by Gulzar and translated by Rakshanda Jalil
