He had apparently made some 2,000 pages of notes towards his second novel. Then, in 1958, he wrote to fellow-writer Saul Bellow of having a “writer’s block as big as the Ritz”.

Rehmat Ali didn’t leave for Pakistan, like his patron the Nawab, but partition had created a vacuum.

“We are preparing them for future jobs.”Maheshwari says youth may be swayed by social media or get influenced by their parents’ political affiliations. First-time voters can become lifetime voters of the party with the right message, she adds.
