Sangeeta reflects on 70 years since Indian independence

It is 70 years since Indian independence - an event that changed the lives of millions of families caught up in the turmoil that followed.

The struggle to shake-off British rule led to the formation of India and Pakistan but also sparked a mass migration and violence. 'Partition' also split the former province of Punjab in two - something remembered today by Sikhs living here in our region.

Sangeeta Bhabra has been to meet a group who still have very vivid memories.
