Independent India tells a story of 3 generations

The story of independent India is a story of three generations. My grandfather, who was born in what is today Bangladesh, had to run away from a place he called home for much of his life after the brutal partition of the subcontinent. While the last souvenir of British colonialism was overthrown, generations of history and heritage were abandoned in a mass migration that claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. A new country, a democracy, took shape in front of his eyes.
