Statement of Purpose
We belong to the second post- independence generation. Our parents were born in independent India, but our grandparents were not. We are a generation not directly affected by partition, but suffering the after effects of it in the form of wars such as Kargil, Jihadi attacks and constant insurgency. However, most people our age are unaware of the root causes behind partition and are limited by the scope of their history text books. We therefore find it strange that even though the true facts of partition have not been transferred to our generation, the collective hatred for our neighbor has been.
Therefore we desire to uncover the truths of partition and to put a halt to the further propagation of the resentment of past generations. We have developed an idea to spread awareness amongst our generation about the partition of India, laying minimum emphasis on independence.
