Kashmir Untold aims to document eye-witness accounts of migration of different communities from the united province of Jammu and Kashmir between 1931 and 1990. The oral-histories will focus on understanding the way violence and forced migration has shaped lives of Kashmiris and their families. From changing their homes to attempting to preserve their culture, the movement altered the identity of communities as well as the others who weren't necessarily residents of the princely state or Kashmiri-speaking.
Our attempt is to not only record the unheard stories of the past but to also understand how communities from Jammu and Kashmir protected their rich and diverse cultural heritage. At Kashmir Untold, we will re-discover Kashmir, from the eyes of the locals and through their ignored and suppressed voices.
Join us to record the ignored life histories of different communities to bring multiple episodes of mass dispersion and ethnic cleansing into the public consciousness.
