About the India Local History Documentation Project
Many of us have learned the history of our subcontinent only in sweeping terms - migration from Africa, the Indus valley civilisation, the Mughal conquest, British colonialism, Gandhiji, and so on. This narrative doesn't inform us much about local history, and in our land of great size and diversity, surely there has been much more we should remember from history in different parts of the country. The India Local History Documentation Project is an effort to present this local history to ourselves, so that we may know it more and remember it better.
