This paper examines how Khushwant Singh wrote "Train to Pakistan" in 1956 when the painful memories of 1947 Partition were still fresh and the wounds hadn't yet healed. It looks at how the book reflects the true emotions that people felt when they were forced to abandon their homes in both India and Pakistan to move north or south according to their religious beliefs. It analyzes how religion was the biggest cause of this partition and it was what forced people to give up everything they previously had including their old identities.
