'On No Man's Land': Representation of Dislocation, Dilemma, and Identity crisis in select Urdu and Hindi short stories in translation


Author(s): Abhik Pal

Abstract: Plenty of works have already enriched the archive of Indian Partition literature. In contrast with those, this study aspires to present something different from the conventional ways of seeing the partition. The main objective of this study is to find out the dilemma of the characters in the selected short stories through the "in-between" concept of Homi K. Bhabha. Besides that, the paper also points out other significant themes of the partition like dislocation, trauma, and the loss of identity. In other words, the paper aims to provide an in-depth understanding of the inner conflicts of the refugees and immigrants who crossed the borderline and left behind their own homeland, family, neighbours and culture.
