Partition Voices - Kavita Puri

Dotted across homes in Britain are people who were witnesses to one of the most tumultuous events of the 20th century, India’s Partition in 1947. Broadcaster Kavita Puri’s award-winning Radio 4 series and book tells their story including that of her father who was twelve when he found himself one of the millions of Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims caught up in the devastating aftermath of a hastily drawn border. She’s joined by one of the interviewees from the book to discuss their own experiences alongside the other extraordinary stories she gathered from across Britain.
