Between January and August 1947, the conflicting tensions of British India culminated in the partition of the country into two new. independent states - India and Pakistan, seeing the end of ninety years of the British Raj. However this dream of independence quickly turned into shame and recrimination where ten million people where turned into refugees, losing lies, homes and livelihoods as the country was dissolved into bloodshed and bitterness. Many of those ordinary people are still alive today and this is there story. One that has resonated through the decades and has led to more war, terrorism, poverty and suffering. Uk
