In Dec 2018 I ran 200 kms, the distance my maternal grandmother and father were forced to walk as a migrant in 1947, in order to raise awareness about the work done by The 1947 Partition Archive in documenting Partition through people's memories.
I'm running 200 miles (320 km) now!
The 1947 Partition Archive is a citizen-powered non-profit organization dedicated to documenting, preserving and sharing eye witness accounts from all ethnic, religious and economic communities affected by the Partition of British India in 1947.
We provide a platform for our fellow citizens from all ethnic and religious groups to come together in collecting, archiving and displaying life stories shaped by Partition.
The stories we collect document not only Partition, but pre-Partition life and culture as well as post-Partition migrations and life changes.
Join us before this memory is forever lost.
