Episode 6 - The Material Realities of Partition with Dr. Guneeta Singh Bhalla

Guneeta Singh Bhalla has worked for over ten years to crowdsource over 5,000 oral histories of Partition survivors. The insights their stories give are only now coming to light with decades worth of research still to be done to truly understand those fateful events. What begins to emerge is a story not of Hindu or Sikh against Muslim - but of political and ruling elites using mob violence for their partisan benefit.
