The present conflict and consequent tense relations between India and Pakistan over Kashmir started in 1947 when the British left. The partition of India is not only a turning point in the history of the Indian subcontinent, but a signal event in world history as well. Preceding partition, India was directly under Crown rule.

With passing of Indian Independence Act 1947 by the British Parliament, all princely states including Kashmir were released from their obligations to the Crown; the Instrument of Accession was an integral part of that mechanism.

Just before the winter when the leaves begin to wither we experience fall. This is the autumn season. The colour of the leaves changes to yellow, brown and auburn. Trees begin to shed leaves. Maple leaves are symbolic to autumn. The landscape is amazing. The earth gets a different hue. The weather is chilly but not severe. The sun is bright but mild. People enjoy picnicking and outing.

But North India is heavenly with the chinar trees changing their colour. If you want to experience the real autumn you should visit Kashmir.

Before “I know why the caged bird sings” black women writers had been marginalized to the extent that they were unable to present themselves as the central characters of their own books. With this autobiography, Angelou became not just famous as a writer but as a spokeswoman for the African American Movement and women as well. In this poem, Angelou effectively contrasts the characteristics of a caged bird and a free bird. The free bird has the courage to claim the sky because his faith has not been broken and his pride has not been more...
