Great book which throws light on the sudden twist in the relationships between brothers and sisters of different religions who were living together for decades. Tamas brings to forefront that all Communal riots in any form is only created and executed by very few vested interests for their selfish needs.
But in between all these chaos, how the human values finally win. Tamas also shows how the values are decreasing from one generation to succeeding generation which is actually true considering the current situation. Hats off to Bhisham Sahni for writing this wonderful book based on India’s Partition. So many feels, and a wonderful eye-opener to different cultures and histories.

Tamas along with Khushwant Singh’s Train to Pakistan are excellent accounts of those turbulent times.
