For those who did not read my earlier post or forgot, I am planning on focusing my research on five events and creating a film including two biases: one from the Pakistani viewpoint and one from the Indian one. This past week I struggled a bit with my events. I wanted to change and even limit the number of events to focus on. I still do not know what I will be doing but all I know is it is much harder to find bias than I expected. I figured it would be easy to do so because you can just search online, “Indian bias partition of India” and it will come up with many results. I tried this and could not find many reputable sources. I met with Teacher Deb along with the librarians and we all worked together to find a few books with viewpoints. Along with that, we found a website full of useful links with more than just the facts. One book we found, “Sources of Indian Tradition” has a section in it called “Muslim Traveler to the West” and a section devoted to leaders of the Islamic revival. I found throughout my research that religion is a key factor that will play into it. Most Indians with a perspective were Hindu while most Pakistanis were Muslim at this time. By the end of this week I hope to have some more research on one of my events and have a set plan on what events I want to actually focus on.
