This August marks 70 years since the largest mass migration in modern human history, the 1947 Partition of the subcontinent into India, Pakistan and later Bangladesh. There is so much history to our struggle with the invaders the fighting them back and through all of it, we three countries were always together fighting the enemies together. But then came the separation, and though we have had history books at our schools filled with the stories of the national freedom fight, all of it was quite filtered. So many of us are still unaware of the graveness of the situation back then, specific reasoning for so many decisions that were taken.
Thus, Godrej- India Culture Lab has proudly presented “Remembering Partition: Museum of Memories”, on August 4|5|6. The 3 days will be packed with a range of discussions, performances, screenings, exhibitions and much more, all united by the common thread of Partition.
Join the trip into the past that will allow us to understand the present, and hope for the future with #RememberingPartition. (Schedule below)
