Indira Chowdhury Title
Professor Indira Chowdhury, Centre for Public History, Srishti-Manipal Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore Oral History Lecture The Partition of India in 1947 caused displacement for millions of people, accompanied by the disintegration of families, communities, and their sense of place. Oral history enables us to examine how a remembered past confronts the glorified stories of nation-building that a new state was anxious to instil in all its citizens. This encounter between memory and history reveals the entangled dynamics between two kinds of journey – the journey that creates citizens and the inner journeys undertaken when remembering the vanished landscape of the past.
