India and Pakistan at 75
In this edition of Wilson Center NOW, we discuss India and Pakistan marking 75 years since independence. Joining us are Akbar Ahmed and Nirupama Rao, both Wilson Center global fellows and former senior diplomats with a keen understanding of the India-Pakistan relationship and its complexities. They examine how the traumatic and tragic events of partition in 1947 continue to impact both countries today. They also assess what the future might hold, and consider the prospects for dialogue between the two nuclear-armed neighbors. Asia Program's Michael Kugelman serves as co-moderator.
