Özet (Orjinal Dil): 

Bapsi Sihwa's Cracking India, was originally published in 1988 as Ice-Candy-Man and was re-published as Cracking India in 1991. Born in 1938, Sidhwa was from a Parsee community and grew up in Lahore. Having witnessed the Partition when she was young, Sidhwa represents her own experience through the narrator's eyes in the novel. Cracking India is considered Sidhwa's semi-autobiography, in which she gives the eight-year-old narrator, Lenny, the same background as hers—a Parsee who grew up in Lahore and suffered from polio. The story of Cracking India is set in Lahore, a city which is now in Pakistan and close to the border between India and Pakistan. This location permits us to see the events that happened right in the center of the Partition.
