By Mehrish Khan



The year is 1959, and in post-Partition Pakistan, schoolboy Riyaaz dreams only of cricket and his late Abu, or father. His best friend Sabih, however, is an Indian, and therefore classed as inferior. What was it like during this time when there were two nationalities at war? Where there were two religions at war? And lastly... two people at war. The purpose of a war is to bring about peace but will there ever be peace? The life of Riyaaz explores the stereotypes, racial discrimination and poverty from a very young age. Many celebrate the freedom on Independence Day. But is everyone free? Everything you see around you, every object, every shoe, every jacket is made somewhere in this world from that one person who's spending hours trying to perfect it. That poor person whose income is solely based on that product. Riyaaz had the opportunity to witness this every day through his friend... or maybe not his friend...
