In the last decades, most of us schooled in India and abroad are typically handed with a simplistic overview of the Partition. Nothing can be further from the truth than it was just a one-time divisive scheme of the British in retaliation to India’s independence movement. The efforts were in place at least 50 years prior to the actual event in 1947, and the socio-economic consequences changed the very future of generations down the line, giving rise to physical conflicts, ideological clashes and divisive propaganda on civilizational level.
This webinar intends to make humble efforts in unfolding the narrative, bringing forward a holistic view that has been systematically suppressed by part of the academia and vested-interest groups globally. We’d discuss the issue with 2 prominent voices from the Indian states of Punjab and West Bengal, Sukhi Chahal and Dr. Anirban Ganguly, along with columnist and commentator Avatans Kumar, moderated by Somanjana Chatterjee who has a decade long socio-political working experience in the subject matter. Both Avatans and Somanjana are part of Indic Academy team in the US.
