Partitioned Lives

Oxford University Press

This section outlines the legacies of the Bengal Partition and argues that processes such as the establishment of documentary identities, illegal border crossing and the debates on citizenship have continued to have lasting impact in the political economy of India. It reiterates the case for the Bengal Partition narrative to assume a more central position within the scholarship and understanding of Partition in both India and Bangladesh.
