Dear Ms. Kumar,

I would like to thank you for giving me the book "Partition and The South Asian Diaspora" written by Prof. Papiya Ghosh. I have found the book to be an in-depth study of real life cases of the people of Indian subcontinent who were affected by the partition and many of whom have now spread to other countries and continents. Prof. Ghosh has brought to bear the force of her intellect on this unique and interesting subject which would prove to be of great value to all those interested in the subject of the South Asian Diaspora. It is unfortunate that Prof. Ghosh is not with us to see the fruit of her efforts in writing this book.

With regards,
Yours sincerely,
(A. P. J. Abdul Kalam)
