Dependent, we aren't at all

Last night, 65 years ago, the British Empire distilled British India into two separate "dominions" of Pakistan and India, forcing close to 11 million to choose which side of the boundary they would like to exist on, and each side rose their fences and bolted their gates. Pure hatred followed, countless lives were snuffed out and the basic principle of 'divide and rule', still plagues this subcontinent. Happy Independence Day. God save the Queen.
