"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.
