“How little we knew each other, though for centuries our homes had shared walls. How little we will learn, now that all we share is a border.”
Amit Majmudar, Partitions

“I am grateful to every reader, whoever you are, wherever you are. Your time has been a gift.”
Amit Majmudar, Partitions

“Nothing holds her in, nothing holds her together. Through all those holes and rents she has dispersed, though yet living. Neither the will to live not the will to kill herself. No will at all. This is a state I had not thought possible. I am dead but not deadened; she is deadened but not dead.”
Amit Majmudar, Partitions
