Partitioned Histories: The Other Side of Your Story

The e-book draws on the ability of a human mind to compare and contrast multiple versions of India and Pakistan’s shared past, and to critically analyse the subjectivity of history and to draw one’s own conclusions. It places Indian and Pakistani textbook narratives side-by-side to highlight the contrast between them, and to point to areas of convergence. The purpose is to introduce people to multiple versions of a shared past and to jolt their conscience into accepting, for starters, that parallel realities can exist in the form of perspectives, whilst being backed by equally.
