The time depicted in the story Do Log is the winter of 1946. A truck leaves the village of Campbellpur after hearing the news of the impending Partition pours in. It is carrying the people who do not know where they will go. They have just heard words like ‘border’ and ‘refugee’, and are struggling to understand how drawing a line might carve out Pakistan from Hindustan. Eventually, as they reach the border, the caravan disperses and innocent masses go their own ways. Gulzar’s first novel tracks the lives of the people in that truck right from 1946 up to the Kargil war. A novel on what the Partition entailed for ordinary people, Do Log is also a meditation on the fact that the division of India and the carnage that followed, once set into motion, kept happening inevitably and incessantly, and people like those who left their homes on that truck never found another home; they kept looking for a place called home, a place to belong to.
