In search of a home
Raghu Rai's latest exhibition documents the lives of refugees living in India
NEW DELHI :
Raghu Rai was four years old when Partition happened. All that he remembers is how one night in 1947, the neighbours gathered in his family’s three-storeyed house in Lahore because their own homes were burning—Rai’s house had a back door that could be used to escape. A few months later, Rai reached the refugee camp in Jalandhar, Punjab, with his parents.
