The Theme of Partition in Bapsi Sidhwa's Ice Candy Man
Bapsi Sidhwa in her novel, Ice CandyMan focuses on the theme of partition of India along with several other themes like the tragic tales of uprooting wonderful dreams of Ranna and Ayah, enormous vacuity of lifeless air that fills the streets of Lahore and the betrayal of human trust. They are all linked with partition phenomenon which left a permanent scar on the memory of India's history. Though everyone seems to be affected by both political and religious horros, very few writers have written about it. Bapsi Sidhwa is one among them. With her artistic vision, she sweeps into a historically significant event of the division of nation.
