India is celebrating its 70th anniversary of independence from British colonial rule which involved a partition that formed two independent states, Hindu-majority India, and Muslim-majority Pakistan.

Today, the two nations still don't agree on their shared border in Kashmir and violent military confrontations have continued. 

After all these years, though, the two countries still don't trust each other, with families separated by the creation of the two Asian states. And many still experience problems when it comes to seeing their relatives.
