“Why do people migrate?” Nadia asks her grandparents one evening. Their answer takes Anoushka, Nadia and Tarun on a journey back in time to Sindh, (now Pakistan), through the story of Gope and Meera. Best of friends, Gope and Meera laugh, play and celebrate India’s Independence in August 1947. Soon after, however, Gope and Meera learn that India has been split into two and realise that they are now living on the wrong side of the border. As refugees, their lives are turned upside down during the chaos following the Partition of India and they are separated forever…or so it would seem.

Beautiful and heartwarming, Gope and Meera – A Migration Story is a tale about a cherished homeland reluctantly left behind and why the Hindu Sindhi community is scattered across the world today. It is a tale of tragic loss, determined hope, preserved culture and spirited victory that will captivate readers of all ages.
