Saraswati Saha, 84, a refugee of The Partition discusses her situation with other elderly women in Cooper's Camp, Nadia district, Ranaghat, North 24 Parganas, West Bengal, India, on 19th January, 2012. She vividly remembers being brought to the refugee camp first by train and then truck. "My daughter has died and I'm still here," she says over and over again. Over 60 years after the bloody creation of Bangladesh in 1947, refugees who fled what was then known as West Pakistan to India still live as refugees, standing in line for government handouts..Photo by Suzanne Lee for The National (online byline: Photo by Szu for The National)
