Like many north Indian families, Urvashi Butalia’s family too was divided during the Partition. While her mother found herself on the Indian side of the border, Rana, her brother, chose to stay behind in Lahore.

Ever since she could remember, Butalia had heard stories of Partition, and of her uncle – who had not only stayed behind, becoming the sole owner of the family house, but had also become a Muslim. It is with these thoughts and not knowing what to expect that Butalia visits Lahore to see Ranamama.

A heartwarming story of families broken and reunited, amidst mistrust and misunderstandings, ‘Ranamama’ defines the pain and heartbreak of the Partition era that has affected generations.
