Turning closed borders into open virtual frontiers
The 1947 Partition of India and Pakistan was the largest forced migration in human history. Over 14 million migrated and over one million perished. After 72 years, Partition continues to be a lived experience for many across the subcontinent. The political relations between India and Pakistan are hostile, plagued by the legacy of Partition and the four wars that followed it. Even today, most refugees have not been able to return home.
When Partition violence was at its height, Gandhi had said that no peace would be possible until the refugees displaced were able to return to their homelands.
Project Dastaan makes that return possible.
