 ABOUT THE TITLE
Som Anand spent his childhood and youth in Lahore where his father Faqir Chand Anand was a respected banker. Som grew up totally free of religious communalism because he consorted with who shared his world view. When Partition took place the Anands decided to stay on in Model Town and Som was a witness of the communal excesses which took place at the time. In this loving and sensitive memoir which recalls a pre-partition Lahore of harmony and peace Sam seeks to restore his spiritual link with the great city of his childhood. In Model Town the suburban hideout of the wealthy aristocracy the Hindus and Muslims lived in social isolation from each other but were friendly. In Icchra Lahore’s suburban village Som consorted with the followers of Allama Mashriqi. In the inner city he mixed with the Fakirs of Fakir Khans. He saw Ataullah Shah Bukhari calm down a crowd that had just broken the head of Zafar Ali Khan the editor of Zamindar. He was friendly with the Bedis and knew Englishwoman Freda Bedi who wrote her book about Punjabi women while she waited for her communist husband to be released from prison. The book is full of anecdotes and stories which should both delight and sadden many people across both sides of the historical divide.
