  4. You might find information about (or even better, writings or speeches by) Gandhi and Nehru. Both had a very good sense of who they were in the long history of people in what we now call India. They may have referred to events and conditions in the past that led to the partition ... which in turn could be helpful to you in studying earlier centuries.
