Walking the Divide – A Tale of a Journey Home, is a unique combination of reality and fiction. It is a fictionalized narration of the life of Syed Sardar Ahmed, specifically his childhood and young adulthood in undivided India and his experience of partition. *** This story is curated based on multiple in-depth interview sessions with Syed Ahmed. It is a story that anyone whose family migrated during the 1947 partition will be able to relate to, as there is a whole generation that carries that trauma. However, not many families had the foresight to document it for the coming generations.*** A story of a man who escaped death in the most unlikely circumstances to find out that his family might not have been so lucky. The uncertainty surrounding the fate of his family makes him retrace his steps through the same 'bloody' journey. His abiding sense of tragedy resonates as he recollects the events around which this book is set; the building of new borders, the chaos that ensued and his unplanned journey to a new beginning. *** The present crumbles into the river of time And returns as the future on the other side Distant, unreachable, unknown Now is where we are born and then we die Slick with the silt of time.
