As a ten-year-old Sikh boy, the author and his family experienced the violence and trauma of migration to India after the British drew a line demarcating India and Pakistan. Here, Chattha discusses the historical and political factors leading up to Partition, examining leadership and cultural forces. He shares his family's migration story as well as those of three other Sikh children in the only published first-person account of the migration written from a Sikh child's perspective. In addition, he relates his visit to his home village in Pakistan years after his family was forced to journey east to settle in India. Finally, Chattha, a practicing neurologist for forty-one years, explores the neurobiology of violence and its link to religion.
