About the Play:

The play takes a comic, satirical and fresh look at the partition of the country in 1947. The story unfolds in the form of a 90-year old man as well as an Alzheimer’s patient - Ghazanfar Hussain, recalling the partition and its immediate as well as long-term aftermath, juxtaposed with the loss of memory that he suffers from. In the process, the old man’s non-academic non-descript, and also funny and factually incorrect, memoirs of the Partition question a range of stereotypes about the event – its genesis, its causes, its worth, its effects.
