Description: The book has been written by Mr Aitzaz Ahsan, the accomplished lawyer politician and visionary. Part-I of this book—The Two Regions—examines the divide between Indus (Pakistan) and India, along geographical lines. Part-II—The Two Worlds—investigates th e difference between the Indus (The Indians) and the most recent foreign rulers, the British. Part-III—The Two Nations—explores the essential divide between the Muslim s and the Hindus of the subcontinent. In endeavouring to determi ne the generic nature of each divide, an attempt has been made to discover the orig inal inhabitant of the Indus region. The underlying purpose of this book is to discover and define the Indus person, the Pakistani citizen. It encompasses t he entire period from pre-history to partition in 1947. The book restates the social, political and cultural history of Pakistan that the author calls the Indus. The book corroborates certain historical facts and refutes several resource-based assumptions on t he basis of authentic sources that also included poetic works. The Indian concept of Mahabharat as one invisible unit is analytically challenged.
