"The Partition of 1947 has influenced the works of an entire generation of writers, and continues to do so. Gulzar witnessed the horrors of Partition first-hand and it is a theme that he has gone back to again and again in his writings. Footprints on Zero Line brings together a collection of his finest writings – fiction, non-fiction and poems – on the subject. What sets this collection apart from other writings on Partition is that Gulzar`s unerring eye does not stop at the events of 1947 but looks at how it continues to affect our lives to this day.
Wonderfully rendered in English by well-known author and translator Rakhshanda Jalil, this collection marks seventy years of India`s Independence. Footprints on Zero Line is not only a brilliant collection on a cataclysmic event in the history of our nation by one of our finest contemporary writers, it is also a timely reminder that those who forget the errors of the past are doomed to repeat them.
