Dabir Ahmad

Even after 70 years I still remember how I left my birth place. It was September 1947. I was born in Delhi at a place near Gurgaon “Garhi Harsaro” my home town. At the time of migration, we shifted to Gurgaon and then Delhi. After which we left for Lahore by train from Nizamuddin Olia Railway station. Along with my family including my father, Bashir Ahmad, two elder brothers and four sisters. Everybody was in tears except me and my younger sister. We landed at Walton railway station and moved into refugee camp. After 32 years when I got married I shifted to the same place where we had landed from India. It was Walton, a small station called Naseerabad.
