About Book

Between Two Worlds is the autobiography of a family set against historical changes taking place in Afghanistan, India and Pakistan from the 16th century to the present day. It takes us on a journey with Pathans of Afghan origin as they circulate across South Asia repeatedly fleeing turbulence in search of security. They find it in the space between two of India's great rivers, the Ganges and the Yamuna. But 400 years later, the Partition of India shatters their lives forcing them to rebuild again in a strange new world. Between Two Worlds shows how traumatic changes can transform womens lives and shape their children as they wrestle between old and new values.
