The “Partition Horror Remembrance Day” exhibition opened at the Hindustan Petroleum gas station in Isharwal village on Thursday.
The event was held under HPCL Regional Retail Office Jalandhar attended by Village Sarpanch Surender Singh and HPCL Team Members Gaurav Kumar, Bhuvaneshwari, Sarvesh Gupta under the leadership of Banay Singh, Dealer JS Nandha and other stakeholders.
HPCL team members said, “As we celebrate the 75th anniversary of independence, the Indian Council of Historical Research and the Indira Gandhi National Arts Center have organized an exhibition to show the sufferings of partition. This exhibition is also displayed in 188 outlets of Hindustan Petroleum.
Gaurav Kumar said: “India’s partition in its most basic form is a story of unprecedented human displacement and forced migration. It is a story in which millions of people have sought new homes in alien and resistant environments. More than the story of a violent division based on faith and religion, it is also the story of the sudden and dramatic end of a way of life and of ages of coexistence. ”
