Originally written in the Urdu as Ghaddaar by Krishan Chander
Krishan Chander's Urdu novel, Ghaddaar meaning ‘traitor', begins with a delicately woven romance between an unmarried Muslim girl, and her married Hindu lover. But the world outside is being torn asunder and Krishan Chander shows how love, brotherhood and humanity swiftly turn into redundant emotions, as permanent lines are drawn between two nations. Traitor is a word that acquires a new meaning and a sharper edge in the times we live in, Krishan Chander's classic novel seems especially relevant as we mark the 70th anniversary of the annus horribilis that was the year 1947.
