The Partition of India

I watched Earth the other night - and had to shamefully admit I had no idea how Pakistan became a country. Another sad example of colonialism gone wrong, another continued war we can attribute to the UK.

One day everyone was Indian, the next friends were killing friends if they were on the wrong side of the divide.

It's sad.

Needless to say I want to learn more...


DOES ANYONE KNOW A GOOD BOOK ON THE PARTITION I COULD READ?


If so please let me know.
