Freedom Tales: Bhagwan Das Aneja’s Long Way to Home

Bhagwan Das Aneja recalls his journey of partition and how he migrated from Pakistan to India.

Bhagwan Das Aneja Jee was living a peaceful life in Pakistan until one day a truck showed up in front of their doorsteps.

After Independence, Bhagwan Das Jee and other people of the Hindu community were asked to vacate the area overnight.

The family packed their bags and left Pakistan to find a new home in India. But the journey wasn’t an easy one.

From Amritsar to Jalandhar, from Saharanpur to Banaras, Bhagwan Das Jee went to several places before finally finding a place to start his new life.

Travelling from one place to another in trucks, staying in camps and finally finding a new home, Bhagwan Das Jee shares his journey of partition.
