Session No. 10 

The partition of India provoked mass unrest and displacement. One of the displaced was Dip Singh, a Sikh from the Punjab who fled to India. Dip’s story forms the heart of her daughter Marina Wheeler’s book, which interweaves her story with the larger narrative of partition as it shaped India, Pakistan and the wider post-imperial world.

Be sure not to miss this fascinating story from a part of history whose repercussions are still shaping the world today, told by a great biographical storyteller.

Marina Wheeler is a barrister specialising in constitutional and human rights law, based in London. An Anglo-Indian who traces her ancestry to Sargodha in West Punjab, she was inspired by her mother’s story to write The Lost Homestead.
