The Indian Subcontinent Partition Documentation Project - ISPaD


In Bengal, as in the Indian subcontinent, there is a taboo in discussing the plight of minorities, and to search the whereabouts of the missing population of minorities. The Indian Subcontinent Partition Documentation (ISPaD) Project, Inc. attempts to break that taboo and tries to estimate the status of minorities in Bangladesh — the East Bengal of the erstwhile Bengal Province of British ruled India, and answer an often-asked question: WHERE DID/DO MY PEOPLE GO? Subsequent projects have "grown" out of what would seem to be a simple query: 1. Documentation of the history of Indian Partition. 2. Documentation of the present-day effects of Indian partition. 3.Interviews of "refugees", "survivors", and "protectors" from the time of Partition to build a collection of oral history narratives kept on the ispad1947 YouTube Channel. 3. Creation & maintenance of the site 4. An annual Partition Studies Conference hosted by The ISPaD Project at SUNY Old Westbury.
