Partition Museum in Amritsar
Updated: Jan 19, 2020
Have you heard about this? Well, it is a multi-media museum which creates a vivid and heart rending narrative of the Partition of India. An amazing effort to collate and share the history of one of the most painful and defining moments of the Indian subcontinent. Many of my grand uncles and aunts have contributed to this museum through their stories on videos. The saddest part of the Partition of the Indian subcontinent was that people who had lived harmoniously for many generations had turned against each other on just the basis of the fact that they belonged to different religions.
Having heard Partition stories from my great grand parents, I can't wait to visit this museum in Amritsar - you must catch it too on your next visit to India! In the meantime, here's a link to the website:
