The partition of India has been the most remarkable and momentous event in the history of Indian subcontinent. Its impacts were diverse on different people, including women and children. Significant events like, Partition of India, usually inspire artists and writers to record such great events in the history and also portray artistically in literature. People saw not only outrageous bloodbath but also it showed totally inconceivable horrible events that wedged the mind, body and soul of not only the victims of violence but also of those who eventually either witnessed or heard the stories post these occurrences, thereby affecting the people socio-emotionally. What the human history witnessed was mass migration, hustle and bustle of rapes, abduction of hapless women and children, in addition to causing spread of hatred and scare from the other community that hovered all around petrifying not only the human beings but also the surroundings, leading to terrible psychosocial factors. Needless to say, that the level of awful experience that people underwent during the period was surprisingly bitter and unimaginably cruel. Apart from the psychological state of the victims which got impacted, there were many who did not lose their calm but fought bravely and came out thriving. They demonstrated their strength and did their level best in re-constructing and rehabilitating their lives fighting with all the adversities while withholding and suppressing the toxic pains and torture that they went through, thereby creating a work-life balance in their lives.
