‘Pinjar’ means ‘skeleton’. A skeleton with neither a face, nor mind, nor a will, nor identity. Pinjar is set in the era of India’s independence from British rule, specifically, the time when the country was partitioned to form the nation of Pakistan. The suffering, hardships, sacrifices and miseries of the women during this time are described in Pinjar, as are the crimes and regrets of the men; the Hindus and the Muslims; the venom from the Partition. Human rights in the face of religious divisions, with the aid of which, the heroine embraces the present and forgives people’s wrongdoings; she rises again to explore the infinite possibilities that the future holds.
