The 1947 Partition Archive

This is not a planned post. This is something I came across on the web and I immediately decided to post the link here. This is an NGO who has decided to start archiving stories, as told by eye witnesses or testimonies by people close to the eyewitnesses, related to independence and partition of British India. I think all you South Asians (or anyone who wants to) must check this website out! Here’s the link:The 1947 Partition Archive.

By the way, I totally loved how they have described Partition. Indeed, it is shocking to know that this was the largest forced human migration in history. The snippets of stories that I read on their Facebook page are so touching and I can already relate my grandparents to all the Punjabis who are interviewed as per their Facebook page! πŸ™‚
