    The persons who experienced the horrors of partition ‘first hand’ and are able to recount them are getting past 80 years of age. So, this project is important to them to archive their stories. Politicians were the main villains in ‘Partition’ Gandhi used to say “Country will be divided over my dead body!!!” Nehru and Jinnah should have asked the ‘cross border’ transfer of population under the protection of British Army. But they didn’t. In 1960 at IIT I had friends who remembered their big houses and luxurious life in Lahore and in Maimansing.
