The international borders of India and Pakistan did not exist until 1947. What did the Indian subcontinent, home to present-day India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, look like before? Why are these separate countries? Students grapple with these questions through readings and activities on two centuries of British rule in the subcontinent, the Indian struggle for independence, and legacies of the partition of 1947.
