Borders and Boundaries: Women in India's Partition

free read Borders and Boundaries: Women in India's Partition free read Borders and Boundaries: Women in India's Partition ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB As an event of shattering conseuence the Partition of India remains significant today While Partition sounds smooth on paper the reality was horrific More than eight million people migrated and one million died in the process The forced migration violence between Hindus and Muslims and mass widowhood were unprecedented and well documented What was less obvious but eually real was that millions of people had to realign their identities uncertain about who they thought they were The rending of the social and emotional fabric that took place in 1947 is still far from mendedWhile ther. 455 Using interviews with Paritition survivors social workers and family members Ritu Menon constructs a feminist history of Partition The book is structured into chapters around specific themes eg acceptable violence against women experiences of widows etc each chapter begins with interviews and concludes with an analysis that creates a feminist reading of Partition By doing so Menon interrogates the relationship betwen women and the nascent states of South Asia in 1947 the relationship between women and their communities and the relationship between women and their families Community religious and ethnic family and national identity all come into conflict for women much less so for men and the manner in which women and the state negotiate these conflicts provide insight into the way patriarchal structures were reified by the new states and the roles women played and continue to play as boundary markers of community and nation The discussions around acceptable violence against women family members and communities killing women rather than allowing them to be dishonored and the state s role in recovering women from the neighboring state are particularly illuminating Familial and national memory in South Asia celebrate the women who sacrificed and killed themselves to preserve the community honor during Partition Male family members remain silent about any possible reservations women may have had instead presenting the history as a single narrative of women choosing death over dishonor The state does not view these killings as murder The historical memory is very similar to for instance historical memory about Rani Padmini etc The interviews reveal a standard feminist criticism of these events the women faced limited choices if any and the killings are societally acceptable femicide While few statistics remain I would be interested in decomposing Partition violence to understand what fraction of deaths were within communityThe state s role in women s recovery similarly suborns the desires of women to the perverse logic of community honor Many women who were abducted during Partition made new lives for themselves lives that may have been freeing than the confining lives they would have lived in their own communities but were denied the right to live where they chose being forcibly repatriated Of note is that the women social workers who were participating in these efforts all came to understand that the state was not acting in the interests of these women all voicing concerns and protests to superiors The state s action in these cases abrogated the civil rights of women as citizens in favor of defining women as religious subjects something that the lawmakers at the time explicitly understood see the debates in the Lok Sabha and something that continues to this day In so doing the state embodies the fraternal brotherhood of male citizens maintaining control over women s bodies and reproductionOne of the standout features of the book are the extensive interviews reproduced in full The women they interview have amazing stories to tell All the interviewees have theories of why Partition happened that they explain at length A remarkable consistency in the interviews is the anger and blame these women direct towards Hindu orthodoxy and its role in poisoning relations between people The book is worth reading for the final interview with Taran alone where she voices the need to make petrol bombs at age 55 because the state has abrogated its responsibility in protecting her rights as a citizen and she will be damned if she doesn t kill her attackers this time around I wish there had been a bit in the book about survey design how did they find the women to interview what are these womens demographic characteristics are the women they interview overrepresenting certain classesgroups are they basing their analysis on a single interview or multiple interviews with similar themes etc Regardless the book is essential reading Govinda The Aryavarta Chronicles #1
