PARTITION OF BENGAL
We would love to hear from you
   
   
 


1905 -- Lord Curzon issued orders for partition of Bengal for administrative conveniences. The Indian intelligentsia viewed the partition as an attempt to 'divide and rule' and called for a mass movement against the decision. 'Bande-Mataram' became the inspiring anthem of the people. Agitation against the partition took the form of mass meetings, protest rallies and a swadeshi movement to boycott the import of British manufactured goods. Curzon called the partition a ‘settled fact’, the people of India unsettled it.

This is a part of a larger walk-though stage setting animated with sound-light-video.
