Now I know why I've been waiting for this session so much: speaks about how important it is to pick up material memory, that people attach emotion to, to understand how the Partition affected families and generations on either sides of the border.

Day 2 of the , and perhaps my greatest takeaway is the following from : there is no such ‘shared’ history of the Partition amongst the 4 countries involved in/affected by the Partition - India, West Pakistan, East Pakistan and England (often overlooked!)

As I never tire of saying, South Asia is a subcontinent of migrations, shaped by diaspora, nomad route, mercantile map. The idea of regions conforming to primordial identities is a recent one. What makes each of our regions unique is the particular cultural hybridity it embodies.
