INTRODUCTION Train to Pakistan written in 1956, differs from the most of the novels on the partition in respect of canvas and unity of time, place and action. It has greater unity of time and place, it action centers in the vicinity of Mano Majra and it covers a period of not more than a month. Perhaps this is an important factor that enables Khushwant Singh to transform the horrendous raw theme into a fine fiction that is steeped in human compassion and love. Train to Pakistan is a historical novel by Khushwant Singh. It recounts the Partition of India in August 1947.

Train To Pakistan is a historical novel by Khushwant Singh, published in 1956. It recounts the Partition of India in August 1947.

However, the brutal honesty of his writing and the sentiments his writing evokes in any self righteous Indian are incomparable to other writings by authors writing about the same cities and the same people. Through Naipaul’s description of India’s ruins in An Area of Darkness, one sees a deeply pessimistic tenor- where he describes India as a land of ruins and decadence, where destruction, annihilation, despair and dereliction was everywhere; but despite it all, very few can dissuade this Naipaulian area of darkness that India had become post the end of colonialism in the 1960s. What is most distinctive about his writing is that his sense of philosophy that adds a much required psychological take on all he sees. In India: A Million Mutinies Now this philosophical melancholy continues and provides the reader a deeper insight into Naipaul’s India. But with the progression of years we also see a progression of ideology, by the time Naipaul visits Calcutta nearly twenty six years later while writing India: A Million Mutinies Now, Naipaul himself tries to analyse the pessimistic lens he wore when he visited Calcutta in 1962.
Apart from the Ramayana of Valmiki which is considered as the ur-text and other popular Rama stories in written forms such as Iramavataram or Kamba Ramayana of Kamban (Tamil), Krittivasi Ramayana of Krittivas (Bengali), Ramcharitmanas of Tulsidas, Madhav Kandali’s Ramayana (Assamese) , to name a few, we come upon scores of Ramkatha or ‘story of Rama’ in different parts of India and in various regional languages.

And it is here one can really witness the parochial aesthetics and cultural markers, not only in terms of language, lexicon, imageries etc. but the local legends, myths and folk narratives being infused into it so appropriately that the resultant product becomes a unique ‘Ramkatha’. These indeed are some of the unique characteristics of this great epic of India.
"But the horses didn 't want it – they swerved apart; the earth didn 't want it …they didn 't want it, they said in their hundred voices, "No, not yet," and the sky said, "No, not there." (CH.37.P.292) In the end, A Passage to India is a novel that represents the British colonialism in India. It also represents the different situation that we can see how the Indians are different from the British there. In my opinion, the relationship between the Indians and British will not vanish or destroyed if they are in a different place and in a different
