Next week, All Things Considered will delve into the roots of the conflict between India and Pakistan starting with their independence in August 1947.

ROBERT SIEGEL, host:

Next week on the program, we're going to dig deeper into the history of India and Pakistani relations. We'll start in 1947, when British rule ended and partition created India and Pakistan amid great violence. We'll hear how the two nuclear powers came to the brink of war after Jihadi groups launched an attack on the Indian Parliament. And we'll talk about cultural identity with a young Indian writer and a Pakistani filmmaker. Those stories begin next Wednesday on All Things Considered.
