“We learn more about this world-changing event from the stories of men, women and children who were not in the top tiers of the Muslim League or Indian National Congress parties whose history has come to define this seminal event in the world’s memory.” – Nabil A Khan, Visiting Scholar, FXB Center, Harvard

Partition is one of the defining events of the modern era and on its 70th anniversary, leading scholars explore and analyze its continuing impact in our special series of podcasts.
The South Asia Institute’s Director, Tarun Khanna, Jorge Paulo Lemann Professor at the Harvard Business School, spoke in June 2017 about our Partition project at the World Economic Forum in China.
On Feb. 3, SAI hosted a discussion forum in Delhi to facilitate a personalized dialogue about Partition. Professor Uma Chakravarti, who moderated the discussion, showed how these stories connect to the present and inform our understanding of history, nation, community, and religion.
The weekly seminars, starting February 1, will explore issues that have often been ignored in the context of the Partition as well as discuss their relevance and impact today, both in South Asia and in other parts of the world.
