Hindu Son of a Muslim Mother —
A Story of the 1947 Partition

Released April, 2023

Shamsher Singh Rana is one of the millions displaced after the 1947 partition, which formed India and Pakistan.

The fire caused by the division continues to burn in hearts and bring tears to those who witnessed its carnage — families and friends separated, lives lost, homes burnt. The fragmented memories, the moments between.

Old friends separated by the border haven’t been reconciled or recovered in the aftermath.

Shamsher left the mother whose love was more emotional than the biological mother behind the borderlines.

Seventy-three years on, he hasn’t forgotten the warm embrace of his Muslim mother.
