After years of partition, Prof. Amin Chohan from Lahore was able to reunite with a part of his home in India. The heartening video has left many emotional.

During partition, numerous people left behind their most prized possessions and moved to a home away from home. They hoped to return to their possessions someday, but for many, that day never came. However, over the years, as the tales of partition linger on, some people have been able to recover their lost possessions or at least parts of it. Prof. Amin Chohan from Lahore, too, was able to find a part of his home that he left in India.

As Instagram user Saad Zahid shared the video, in the caption of the post, he informed, "It's the old door from Prof's father's home in Ghoman Pind, Batala. This door, filled with memories and history, travelled a long way from Batala to Mumbai, then Dubai, Karachi, and finally to Lahore, where Amin lives. As Prof looks at the worn-out wood, he can't help but cry, deeply moved by the door's meaning and the memories it holds. Even though the partition of 1947 divided lands, it couldn't separate the hearts of Punjabis, who stayed connected through shared heritage and friendships."
