A few months back India celebrated the 74 year anniversary of its freedom struggle and its independence from 200 years of colonial rule. But at that time, many people across the borders had to relive the horrific nightmares of partition and the massacre that arose after India won its land. Both India and Pakistan abound in people who spend each day in the thought of visiting their hometown which is on the other side of the border.

A short clip has been viral on social media, where Gill can be seen expressing his emotions with everyone.
