Sad state of affairs.. Not only the land, offices, furnitures, but also the library books had to be divided between 2 nations during partition in 1947.. I remember reading in “Freedom at midnight” the division was so calculative and senseless that most of the tables sent across the countries did not accompany the chairs and some volumes of the books were not sent (making it an incomplete set) because they had to maintain the 4:1 ratio during division. Ridiculous!!
