Description

At the age of twelve, Nisha receives a newspaper. In it she begins to write about her life: the things that she likes and those that she does not, and also about what she is not capable of saying out loud, but cannot avoid questioning. The year is 1947 and India has become independent from British rule. Its partition gives rise to a new country, Pakistan, which creates a lot of tension between Hindus and Muslims. Nisha, who is half Muslim and half Hindu, does not know where she belongs or what her country is, and now she must leave her home. In the company of her father, her grandmother, her twin brother, Amil, Nisha will embark on a perilous journey in search of a new home across the border. An intimate story that, told as an intimate diary, addresses an important, although little known, moment in modern history.

 

Al cumplir doce años, Nisha recibe un diario. En éste comienza a escribir sobre su vida: las cosas que le gustan y las que no, y también sobre aquello que no es capaz de decir en voz alta, pero que no puede evitar cuestionar. Corre el año 1947 y la India se ha independizado del dominio británico. Su partición da lugar a un nuevo país, Pakistán, lo cual genera mucha tensión entre hindúes y musulmanes. Nisha, quien es mitad musulmana y mitad hindú, no sabe a dónde pertenece o cuál es su país, y ahora debe abandonar su hogar. En compañía de su padre, su abuela y Amil, su hermano gemelo, Nisha se embarcará en una peligrosa travesía en busca de un nuevo hogar al otro lado de la frontera. Una entrañable historia que, contada a modo de diario íntimo, aborda un importante, aunque poco conocido, momento de la historia moderna.
