Aim of the literature is to travel forward in the development of the country and it echoes in the real society. Literature is not only the representation of human life but also the representation of all ages. Every greatest and least fluctuations are noted down in literature in which the partition of India and Pakistan is not an exceptional event. There is an intricacy in representing the independence and partition of India with complete picture. Two greatest events, Independence and partition occurred simultaneously in August 1947. There are many historical writings which depict the event of partition but there is a requirement for literature to prompt the event with the essence of emotions. To understand the hidden and crushed human feelings at the time of partition, the new literature arises and projects the complete picture of partition.
