dc.description.abstractThis essay harks back to the period when Bal Ram Nanda, an outstanding student at Lahore University and subsequently a government servant in the Railways, began to write history. Nanda’s first and least known work, published under a pseudonym, was on the partition of India. This was not a book about great men, Nanda’s subsequent preoccupation, but of ‘ordinary people’ uprooted; and like him, I write of their actions during the upheavals of 1947. Gandhi is part of my story, but he is not the main focus, for the compelling reason that I am not a scholar of Gandhi. Yet Gandhi’s words and actions at this crucial juncture reveal unexplored dimensions of the Mahatma’s moral politics that call, I suggest, for deeper and more sustained investigation.en
