ISHAR DAS ARORA
“People had faith, in mosques also … muslims … they … people would live with love and there was no hatred – but later, when the riots started, friends became enemies.”
Ishar Das Arora, our founder Sparsh Ahuja’s grandfather, was born in Bela, a small village in West Punjab in 1940. Ishar was 7 years old at the time of Partition. He would walk every day to and from school in the nearby village Ziarat. He eventually moved to Delhi, India after living in many refugee camps.
