About Isd
ISD came into existence at the backdrop of unprecedented violent conflict that South Asia has witnessed over the last ten years. Now they have become a routine affair. Thousands of men, women and children fell victim to this madness. As Neruda says :

PABLO NERUDA
And one morning all that was burning
One morning the bonfires
Leapt out of the earth
Devouring human beings-
And from then on fire,
Gunpowder from then on,
And from then on blood,
Bandits with planes and Moors,
Bandits with planes and Moors,
Bandits with black friars spattering blessings
Come through the sky to kill children
And the blood of children ran through the streets
Without fuss, like children’s blood
Jackals that the jackals would despise,
Stones that the dry thistle would bite on and spit out,
Vipers that the vipers would abominate!
ISD has chosen Composite Heritage as a tool for conflict transformation and violence prevention as no other organization has yet taken it up. Composite Heritage is chosen as a tool, because of the fact that irrespective of the caste, religion, and gender every individual relates to it. Composite Heritage belongs to no individual, it belongs to the masses. It is only then that it is composite.
