About The Book

The book based on the archival material accessed for the first time from the NehruPapers and the archives of the Ministry of External Affairs gives a new perspective onmany issues of great significant in the India-Pakistan discourse.The partition was an opportunity for the two countries to go their own ways and buildegalitarian societies, complementing each other. Unfortunately Pakistan unable totranscend the old animosities added new ones to construct the bogey of Indianhegemony. This was diametrically opposed to India's determination to steer clear of thepast and pursue a positive policy towards Pakistan, since it shared with its peoplecenturies' old historical, economic, social and cultural ties. For India, the separationwas like a family dividing the assets by agreement of its members and living peacefullythereafter. For Pakistan, separation was like a permanent breakup of the family, nursinggrievances, sulking and harbouring adversarial feelings. It was this mindset thatdictated the agenda of Indo-Pakistan narrative in the years following the partition whichthe book captures.
