1 Debjani Sengupta (ed.), Ashis Nandy (trs.)
Mapmaking: Partition Stories from 2 Bengals
Srishti Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8188575003 / 9788188575008; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This volume brings together Bangla stories from Bangladesh and West Bengal in a unique attempt to see how Partition has shaped the Narratives of the two regions that share a common languages, culture and heritage. Many of these stories have been translated for the first time into English and carry the evocative, ironic tone that is a special flavour of Partition stories from the east. Differing in many ways from the stories in Urdu and Hindi, these haunting narratives question the finality and resolution of the Partition, the unsufficiency of memories and the instability of borders. As they unfold a tragic tale of loss to the world, we once again come to see how every time narratives of the Partition are re-told, they point towards our changing values, our present and our future.
