Reena Verma finally found her pre-partitioned childhood home in Pakistan

Pune – 90 years old Reena Verma finally fulfilled her dream of visiting her childhood home after 75 years in Pakistan. Reena ji’s childhood was spent in her city of Rawalpindi in Pakistan. She was able to find this house with the help of active members of a Facebook team called India-Pakistan Heritage Club. These Facebook people started searching for her ancestral home in Rawalpindi and finally a female journalist was successful in finding this house. Ms. Verma now lives in the Indian city of Pune. Her family had left Rawalpindi within 1947, a few weeks before the partition. Ms. Verma never stopped thinking about her childhood home, which her father had built with his own savings.
