On the Partition Citizens

I need to look at any existing historical/sociological work that may have been done on the 'refugees' of the Partition in India, which deals not with Partition but with the post-Partition history of these 'refugees' over the decades up to the rise of Hindu communalism / nationalism. While any such narrative will inevitably draw upon the Partition, what I mean to say is the the act of Partition and related events remain in the background, both textually and historically. It would deal with only the 'Punjabi' 'refugees' or only the 'Bengali' 'refugees'; or both. I intend to compare the two experiences.

I would also like to explore such work in the Pakistani context.

I would be very grateful to anyone who could point me to any sources.

You may want to have a look at my paper on Partition literature.
