Description from the publisher:
A young Indian villager, Omar Ghazi, is plunged into the independence and partition of India and Pakistan in the greatest mass exodus of the 20th century. Once he reaches Pakistan, he finds out that the struggle against injustice is not over as he is about to face an oppressive feudal landlord. He fights for his freedom across three continents. Omar, who is now a grandfather living in California, tells the story of his life and the lessons he learnt to his grandchildren. He wants them to remember his generation's struggle. The children want to hear real stories, full of curiosity and questions. Together they re-live the past, and hope for a better future in a captivating action-adventure.
