Yale project to save South Asian Independence history





A project to preserve the broadest historical record of the independence struggle in India, Pakistan and other South Asian nations has been launched by America's Yale University.

The South Asian Independence Movement (SAIM) project launched on Tuesday to mark the 60th anniversary of the two South Asian neighbours' independence is seeking physical or digital artefacts and memorabilia associated with events or people involved in the freedom movement.

The New Haven, Connecticut, South Asian Studies Council (SASC) of the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Centre for International and Area Studies at Yale is also looking for personal recollections and narratives describing experiences from the period to enrich the published and archival record.
