Sandip Roy: Partition Museum
There's a penthouse suite in downtown Berkeley, California that would make you think you are in a tech incubator hub. White boards on the wall with scribbles on them. Panoramic views of the Berkeley hills. Two syllable names like Chirp and Kizoom – more catchy than meaningful.
And then there is the 1947 Archive.
The Partition of India uprooted 10 -15 million people , the largest mass displacement of the 20th century. 250,000 – two million died. Yet no museum commemorates it. Until this archive from downtown Berkeley.
