   schema:reviewBody ""Based on the everyday life of the migrants in three resettlement colonies, the book focuses on the period between 1947-1965 - from the time of Partition till the official closure of resettlement work. It shows how Partition stands as a living theme, a point of reference for the Delhi Punjabis. The narrative is woven with memories of lived and inherited experiences and national histories of Partition. The refugees' journey towards becoming 'locals' is mapped through an exploration of their coping strategies and gradual identification with the Indian state. This work, thus, shifts focus from standard debates on Hindus-Muslims, Congress part-Muslim League, India-Pakistan, and opens up the inquiry to uncharted territory."
