I miss you Indira Priydarshini Gandhi, because you were the greatest leader Mother India ever produced. You were the one who had given the definition to the much touted world Initiative. You were willing to make decisions. You had made decisions that changed the course of history. Your decisions changed the destiny of millions. You didn't fall victim to 'ready-aim-aim-aim-aim syndrome.' You were willing to fire. You fired when it was the need of the hour.

The Indian Subcontinent was partitioned between India and Pakistan in 1947. Majority Muslim areas were carved out as Pakistan. A large population of Muslims migrated to Pakistan; Hindus of those areas followed the same pattern. Those Muslims who didn't agree with the concept of 'Two Nation Theory' stayed back in their 'Motherland' - Bharat.
