Sarju jumped out of her bed, and ran towards the large window-sill where in one corner sat her doll, her long black hair glowing softly in the morning light. “Oh! Champa!” Sarju cried, hugging her doll close. “It’s already the 7th! In another ten days you will be a beautiful bride!” She rocked the doll close against her and continued,“You’ll be sad at leaving me, but Salma’s gudda is the best in Karachi. I know you will be very happy in her house.” Sarju kissed Champa soundly on the cheek.
Just then she heard her mother’s voice “Sarju!” “Yes Ammaji!”cried Sarju “Bathe and get dressed quickly, child. Master Sir will be here any moment!” Sarju ambled back to her room. “Oh Champa!” she grumbled. “I wish I didn’t have to learn Arithmetic. It’s so difficult and boring! Don’t grin like that. You wouldn’t if you knew how confusing it is!”
Twenty minutes later Sarju was sitting at her study table, battling with the arithmetic problems that Khan Sahib had put to her. Every now and then her mind would leave the book in front of her and wander off to think about her doll’s wedding that was to take place on the 17th of August. Sarju wondered what Salma would have done for Sahir. She’d soon see!Later that afternoon, as Sarju sat down for lunch in their large stone kitchen, she could hardly contain her excitement, and hurried through her meal.
“Must you gulp your rice down like that, beti?” Sarju’s mother scolded. “Eat slowly! There’s plenty of time to reach Salma’s,” her mother smiled.Salma lived on the first floor of a huge building in Bunder Road, not far from Sarju’s house. As Sarju ran towards the house, Salma called from the terrace, “Sarju, Sarju! Come up quickly! Sarju hurried up the stairs. “Let’s go in.” Salma said, “I want to show you my gudda’s shervani that Chachiji has stitched for his wedding.”As the days flew past, Sarju’s excitement mounted. Then one morning Sarju was woken by loud voices coming from the hall.
Her father was pacing the length of the room, looking very agitated. Ammaji was sitting on her rocking chair, sobbing hard. Madho Chacha was trying to explain something to her in his loud booming voice. “The British government has declared the Partition and there is nothing we can do! We must leave as soon as we can. Things are becoming very difficult for us now!”
