Taangh Purane Pind Di

The Largest Migration in Human History

1947: An Unforgettable Pain

In 1947, Punjab was divided into East and West Punjab, to be administrated by India and Pakistan. Millions of Punjabis had to leave their native places to migrate to the other side of the border. More than a million Punjabis lost their lives and 15 million migrated, which was the largest known migration in human history. People left their native places, but they always have desire to see their birthplace, to meet their childhood friends, and to visit their historical and religious places of worship. More than seven decades have passed. Many of them left this world with the unfulfilled desire in their hearts and others are getting old with their desire.
JSP's Effort to Heal

Connecting with Ancestral Lands

Jeevay Sanjha Punjab took this responsibility with its project ‘Taangh Purane Pind Di’, i.e. ‘Desire to see native village/place,’ to fulfill their desire. In this project, we interview them to cover their story, and our team on the other side of border visits the place and tries to find the places and the people they shared information about. We upload the combined information from both sides in the form of video on social media platforms of Jeevay Sanjha Punjab. With this project, we are connecting people with their roots and fulfilling their desire to see their native villages/places.
