Storyboard Text

  • Growing Up
  • Life is simple, easy and great. 
  • Hearing the News
  • Why are they murdering innocent people? That is my family!
  • Hiding from Invaders
  • They'll never find me here!
  • In 1934, I, Abdul Rehman, was born in Chhajpur Kalan where I helped my family cultivate the fields and got most of my knowledge from my older brother.
  • Returning to the Village
  • How could they do this!?!?
  • After the news from the village keeper of the division of the land, my brother and I continued to work until we heard that surrounding villages were invaded and many of my cousins were murdered. 
  • Becoming a Refugee
  • I hate this place, I want my home.
  • We knew that a group was coming to our village so my brother and I decided to hid in the fields. Once the group reached us they told us that there was no more families in the village and made us return. 
  • Residing in Pakistan
  • Finally, a simple life again. 
  • Upon returning to the village, I found many homes locked and shops looted. The families of the town were escorted to Noorwala were refugees gathered. I also found out that 50 of my family members were killed. This is when I went mute for some time. 
  • The army took all the refugees including myself to Panipat refugee camp, where I lived from one month and then was put on a train to Amritsar. This is where we lived in Walton camp for another month. 
  • I moved to Daultala were I was given no land compensation due to the partition and this is were I continue to live and cultivate land.
