Delhi Metro decked up with exhibition on Partition of India for August 10-14

A thematic exhibition on the Partition of India was inaugurated at the Rajiv Chowk Metro Station in Delhi on Wednesday, officials said. It will be open for visitors from August 10-14.

The exhibition marks Partition Horrors Remembrance Day on August 14 and was inaugurated by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) chief Vikas Kumar in the presence of its directors and senior citizens.

Ministry of Culture has directed this exhibition as part of the ongoing Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, the DMRC said in a statement.

The statement read, "Partition Horrors Remembrance Day has been envisaged to bring to light the agony, suffering and pain of millions of people who were the sufferers of the Partition. It is to remind the country of the largest displacement of human population in the last century, which also claimed the lives of a large number of people."

The exhibition has been organised by the Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR) and the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) with panels in both English and Hindi.

Kashmere Gate Metro Station will have a similar exhibition.
