How long shall this ambivalence continue?
Time is a big healer and heals almost every scar, but it seems bloodstained partition of 1947 is haunting India and Pakistan like a ghost even after decades. Whether partition was right or wrong, that is a different issue and the trickiest subject for historians? Whether or not we accept it, but Partition was the outcome of ego and intrigue by almost every shade of political leadership and catalyzed by murky forethought of departing British. The ultimate losers were the poor people! Anyways, partition and creation of India and Pakistan and later intriguing breakup of Pakistan in 1971 along with some unresolved issues as festering sores is more than a fact now. People of India and Pakistan have accepted the reality of partition; have been trying to reconcile and move forward with positive thinking, but unfortunately almost every political dispensations in both the countries never reconciled with the facts of partition and made their politics to rest and flourish on hostility and confrontation.
