Release of ASM Journal Volume 91

We are happy to share with you that on 25th November 2023, on the occasion of the Foundation Day of the Asiatic, the Society has released Volume 91 of the ASM Journal. It has come to the Society's notice that some unscrupulous elements are collecting money for publishing papers in the Society's Journal and offering bogus certificates. The Asiatic Society does not collect money for publishing in its journal, nor does it guarantee publication, and neither does it issue any certificate. Authors must verify with the Society before submitting any papers, and papers will be published only after rigorous peer review and editing. The Society does not take responsibility for any payments made to third parties claiming to represent the Society, or for their papers appearing in a cloned/spam journal. Ours is a print-only journal. 


Mumbai Research CentreAsiatic Society of Mumbai, and Avid Learning present Journeys of Separation - Recalling Stories of Partition, a lecture demonstration by Author, Managing Editor, The 1947 Partition Archive Dr. Guneeta Singh Bhalla. Her presentation will be followed by a conversation with Deputy Editor, Live History India Aparna Andhare. 

10,000 Memories: A Lived History of Partition is the fruition of the largest pan-South Asian oral history survey ever conducted. Through individual experiences, it documents stories of Partition, World War II, and Independence in the mid-20th century Indian subcontinent. The narratives from Bombay include stories of soldiers involved in the Navy Mutiny, the settlement of Sindhis post-partition, and numerous Muslim families who chose to stay in Bombay and continued to call it their home among others.

The book has its origins in The 1947 Partition Archive. Founded by Dr. Guneeta Singh Bhalla, it is a crowdsourced community-based archive that trains citizen historians to document, preserve and share oral histories of Partition. Previously an experimental condensed matter physicist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Department of Physics at the University of California at Berkeley, Dr. Bhalla began interviewing Partition witnesses in 2009. In 2011, The 1947 Partition Archive was born and has documented over 10,000 witness accounts.

Come and be a part of a nostalgic lecture demonstration by Dr. Guneeta Singh Bhalla followed by a conversation with Deputy Editor, Live History India Aparna Andhare to discover the evocative stories ensuring that history is not forgotten.
