Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited conducts an exhibition to remember the partition times on Partition Horrors Remembrance Day
New Delhi ,
The partition of India in its most basic form is a story of unprecedented human displacement and forced migration. It is a story in which millions sought new homes in environments that were alien and resistive. More than being a story of a violent divide based on faith and religion it is also a story of how a way of life and ages of co-existence came to a sudden and dramatic end.
To bring to light and remember the pain and agony of millions of people who were the sufferers of partition, Hon’ble Prime Minister during his speech from Red Fort on 15th Aug 2021 had declared 14th Aug to be observed as Partition Horror Remembrance Day.
On this year of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, when we celebrate the 75th year of Independence, Indian Council of Historical Research and Indira Gandhi National Centre for Arts have curated an exhibition to showcase the sufferings of partition.
This exhibition, amongst other platforms, is also being displayed at 188 outlets of Hindustan Petroleum Corp Ltd.
As part of this, the Partition Horror Remembrance Day exhibition was inaugurated in Delhi at Auto Care Centre, Niti Marg, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi on 10th August 2022 by Sh. Satish Upadhyay, Vice Chairman of New Delhi Municipal Council. Padma Shri award recipient Sh. Jitender Singh Shunty inaugurated the exhibition at Victory service station Shahdara and Padma Shri award recipient and the famous cardiologist Dr. Upendra Kaul inaugurated the exhibition at Hemkunt Service Station, Jangpura.
All dignitaries, while speaking on the occasion remembered the horrors of partition and complimented HPCL and MoPNG for showcasing the horrors of partition.
