Book Review | Train to Pakistan | Khushwant Singh

Train to Pakistan by Khushwant Singh

The story takes place in an isolated village, Agate Mazra, where people of other religions such as Hindus, Sikhs, and Muslims coexist peacefully. As a symbol of ignorance and peace, the village symbolizes ignorance and peace until harmony is threatened by events that arouse suspicion, confusion and hostility due to the cracks created between different communities.
The story is told from the perspective of three key figures: the infamous strength Jagga, the town peace officer Hukum Chand, the village-visiting political activist and mysterious identity Iqbal. For the purpose of triggering the proletarian revolution.
Despite the low speed, this book is very attractive. The landscape depictions and depictions of the everyday life of the people in the book are so lively details that I feel there and experience them first hand.
I liked using symbols to describe events taking place in town. Disruption of daily activities, such as train schedules, shows a disturbance in the rhythm of their daily life.
The author criticizes various aspects of society, including people’s moral norms, religious beliefs, inequality, and corruption, in various places, and points out people’s hypocrisy. The situation in the village shows how easy it is to manipulate people for religious reasons.
They have no name because they abuse and beat him without anger and hatred. They were just a sect trying to do better. If one fails, it’s just bad luck. The
ending brought tears to my eyes. The author accurately portrays the complexity of mankind and points out the differences in his beliefs and actions. This book is still relevant today, as the situation in today’s times does not change much. It is a beautiful book worth reading.

Trains going to Pakistan do not read lightly. It is one of the few efforts to save the little love left between India and Pakistan. It was used to show a way that did not require the massacre or violence of the innocent after the split, but people have believed it. Through Khushwant Singh Ginmoto, he points out that he does not classify people as good or evil, and that even the best relationships based on the virtues of comradeship and empathy can be fully encountered during times of selfishness and difficulty. Tolerance, hypocrisy and deception. Also, the contrast between the two main characters in the novel shows that it is a difficult time to test the character.
languages ​​simple and engaging. The story of the Pakistani Train is slow at first, but slowly begins as the events unfold. When I read it, I was in tears, so the ending is the best part of the book.
