Author- Josef Korbel

On 15 August, 1947, two countries, India and Pakistan had their independence thrust upon them in a somewhat urgent and not completely orderly manner.

It was not that the peoples of these two new-born countries had not been agitating for independence as indeed they had for many years, sometimes with open violence, but mostly with passive resistance.

When suddenly Independence came with a rush, these new countries, whose combined numbers approximate one-fifth of the worlds population, were ill-prepared for the peaceful settlement of the many knotty problems that such a hasty separation entailed.
