    The video conferencing session between the two schools was conducted between students of Gyan Mandir Public School (Delhi, India) and Adamjee Model School (Karachi, Pakistan). The session was coordinated by Ms Anju Anand and Ms Devika Mittal from Indian side and Mr Usama Palla and Ms Suraya Islam from Pakistan. We're grateful they let us drop by!

    The British tasked Cyril Radcliffe with the job of drawing a line to separate Punjab and Bengal provinces from India into East and West Pakistan. Muslims and Hindus weren’t the only ones being separated from each other. Sikhs and people from other faiths were affected as well.

    A Sikh pilgrimage was divided because of the new border, Punjabi people of all faiths were separated from each other, and a culture was ultimately divided.

    This Vox Borders episode looks at how the Radcliffe line changed Punjab and how communities are affected now.

    The border was held to prevent what is happed now to Muslims in india.
    And that is enough for a reason.

    A very good job but when we talk about partition of the subcontinent and not only India because there is no india on that time you have to also see the (Two nation theory) then you can completely understand this division of subcontinent

    Indians have to get rid of modi and the ideology he follows, because im proud to say right now we have a strong leader who wants peace and prosperity but that can only happen when India has a leadership that wants the same....people of both countries generally speaking want to live in peace....

    You can see what is modi is trying to do in the region. creating the environment of war which will turn into nuclear war and why he is doing this because he is the member of RSS which is the religion group and their ideology is that india is only belong to hindus that's why he revoke the article 370 from kashmir

    Jo koi baher say ata hai india pakistan ko ek jaisa samjhta hai

    Pata nahn ham log kab dushmni khatam karein gein
    Bht khobsurat hain dono country
