Summary: Digha Lodge presents a fairly true rendering of the extraordinary events surrounding the Jamil family, particularly its patriarch, Sayed Jamil Ahmad. When Sayed was just two, he lost his father but remained steadfast to face the challenges of a fatherless childhood. His is the story of a self-made man who gave his children the best a father can givewithout compromising his principles or succumbing to social pressures. Written by Ahmads son, Syed Sabir Jamil, Digha Lodge is the story not only of one family, but also of a nation. It captures decisive moments in both histories, from the creation of Pakistan to its tragic dismemberment and the impact these life-changing events had on the family. They bravely faced the many difficulties and challenges of migration together. It is a story of prides and prejudices, fears and fulfillments, and commendations and condemnations. Psychic and mystical, the stories shared in Digha Lodge are captivating, entertaining, and enlightening, framing a bold narrative of true, untold stories of the Jamil familys lives, losses, and loves.
