The Partition of India in 1947 was an unpleasant past that no one wants to remember. The incident was unprecedented for the world for it was the first time when any country was divided on the basis of religion. The second big reason was mass migration. Partition also resulted in unprecedented violence, murders, rapes and much more. Unfortunately the partition served to increase the hostilities between India and Pakistan instead of bringing peace.

India and Pakistan will celebrate their 74th Independence Day this year. Both the countries have come far from their situation on the eve of independence, in terms of infrastructure, economy, globalization and overall development. Yet, the ghost of horrendous partition continues to haunt both nations, with the relationship between India and Pakistan still strained after more than half a century. It is finally time to understand the totality of partition to overcome these differences and come to terms with the past.
