Sandip Roy: A Museum for the Partition

Aug 23, 2017

This August 15th marked 70 years of India’s independence.  But this also marks 70 years of one of India’s greatest human tragedies. 

The partition of India into two countries – India and Pakistan.  

It was the greatest human displacement of the 20th century. Over 10 million rendered homeless.  Some say 2 million died.  As Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims turned on each other.
