My presentation will look at the challenges which India faced in territorially reintegrating itself as a newly independent nation. The break-up of Punjab and Bengal in 1947 presented extraordinary challenges. The hasty accession of over 550 princely states added even more complexity to the project of constructing a national political space which would incorporate indigenous identities based on language, culture and region. My presentation will focus on some of the key debates which took place between 1947 and 1956 over issues such as how a ‘region’ could be defined; the different ‘types’ of regions which existed within the body-politic; the challenge posed by ‘sub-regions’; and finally, the need to balance the region vis-à-vis pan-Indian authority.
