The decade of the Forties was turbulent for British Raj - World War II was raging and the Indian subcontinent was swept by a popular freedom movement. As the War ended, Indian subcontinent was divided in 1947. India as a fledgling nation rose to the aftermath of Partition violence, exodus and influx of population; and a War in posed in Jammu and Kashmir.
