15th of August 1947: Independence day in India

Posted in Awareness, Politics with tags , on 14/08/2011 by terraMasala

I’ll never forget when I was in India in 1997…on the 15th of August…50 years of Independence…big celebrations everywhere.
Attached is a BBC documentary about the partition of India. Still I come across people in the west who don’t even know that before this date, India & Pakistan was one country.
Over a million of people were killed during this partition-process. Independence is more than hanging a flag out of one’s window.
A moment of silence in respect and remembrance of the people who lost their lives. (-°-)
