The legacy of the Amritsar massacre lives on in India’s general elections | Amrit Wilson
A century on, the colonial policies that led to the killing of 1,000 people are playing out in a dangerously polarised electionOn 13 April 1919, the day of the Sikh festival of Vaisakhi, British soldiers fired indiscriminately on unarmed men, women and children attending a peaceful public meeting in a walled park called Jallianwala Bagh, in Amritsar, Punjab. An estimated 1,000 people were killed and many more injured as they were shot in cold blood, even as they tried to escape.In the years that have followed, those British politicians who have spoken of the massacre at all have portrayed it as a “monstrous” exception to the otherwise benign rule of the British Raj – arrogantly dismissing Britain’s long and bloody record of colonial repression in India. British descriptions of colonial history are rife with such convenient denials and reframings. Even that pivotal conflict India’s first war of independence, which started in 1857 and lasted two and a half years, was dubbed “the mutiny” and is still described as such in British history books.

Life swap: the families forced to trade places after Indian Partition
Following the division of India in 1947, two families caught up in the largest mass migration in modern history arranged to swap houses – with vastly different resultsDown by the Buriganga river in Old Dhaka is a house with wooden windowpanes and a crumbling facade called Laxmi Villa. It dates back to long before Bangladesh achieved independence, to when the region was still part of British India under the rule of the Raj, and was the residency of the prominent Das family. The patriarch who built it, BK Das, even gave his name to the riverside street, which is still known as BK Das Road.Today, the house is mostly empty. The bottom floor has been closed off, and the balcony door only opens when the manager comes to his office on the first floor. In the small garden, the bushes and trees grow unhindered.

Women are suffering silently in Pakistan – is #MeToo the answer?
Inclusiveness and an appreciation of cultural nuances are key to changing attitudes in a society where harassment is the normWhen I was in seventh grade in Pakistan, a classmate tapped my best friend’s shoulder and remarked: “Nice bra”. We were 12, and accustomed to friendships with boys. But youthful idealism meant less tolerance for unsolicited sexual innuendo. We marched to the headteacher’s office ready to change the world, only to be asked to repeat verbatim, several times, the words that had been spoken.“These things happen in co-education,” we were told. The headteacher downsized our trauma, reducing our complaint to a cheap, inflated scandal. The boy escaped without punishment and the message was clear: girls, pick your battles.
