HYDERABAD: The South Central Railway (SCR) commemorated the ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’ across all six divisions of its zone, on Monday. The central theme of the exhibition revolved around the story of India’s Partition—a chapter marked by anguish and suffering, yet also marked the dawn of a new life for millions of Indians who bravely faced the horrors, becoming symbols of resilience and courage in the face of adversity.
Understanding its significance, SCR established special photo exhibitions at 40 railway stations to sensitise and educate the passengers about the pain and suffering endured by Indians during the Partition era. Among the stations hosting these exhibitions are Secunderabad, Kazipet, Khammam, Begumpet, Warangal, Kacheguda, Miryalaguda, Nalgonda, and Nizamabad.
