About 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 - with four foci - 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. Creation & maintenance of the site http://www.ispad1947.org 4. An annual Partition Studies Conference hosted by The ISPaD Project, with the truly impressive growth and expansion of ISPaD, has been graciously given a venue at/by SUNY Old Westbury. Upon completion of renovations to The ISPaD Project's office building, we have already begun to and plan to continue holding the annual Partition Studies Conference within the NYC office. The office space was redesigned so as to make it easier for us to hold conferences, events, & meetings within The ISPaD Project's own NYC main office-thus we need not pursue permission for usage. Also, ISPaD's main office is in an area that is easily accessible via mass transit or one can drive to the area & look for an open spot to park on the roads, if the entire driveway (with room for a few cars) is full. The architectural and planning accolades I adorn our office building with, have been seen by many other organizations looking for a location to hold events. Assisting such organizations has been a means to raise funds by renting out common space, this common space has been rented out and also increased the number & variety of events The ISPaD Project now hosts - all of the aforementioned events held in our building all raised knowledge (perhaps even interest &/or funding) about The ISPaD Project's endeavors.
