Abstract

As the concept of nation-state is relatively new, obviously undivided India was not a nation-state in the modern sense. But in 1947, with the partition, two countries, India and Pakistan came into being with full sovereignty from a single British ruled India. Now, both nations are independent and sovereign state like any other modern sovereign and independent nation-state. Both the nations shared same colonial legacy and troubled inception. Due to this troubled and shared history, the relationship between India and Pakistan, right from the inception was not in a comfortable fervour. Though, the people across the troubled and wounded borders shares almost same culture and social fabric, but political and historical tensions always create sturdy barriers between them.
