Separatist Movements in India

In the very first year of Indian Independence, many people prophesied that the country will never remain as a single united nation and divide into separate states due to its diversities. 

Today, every Indian is proud of its united country with diversities across the country from north to south and east to west with varying religions, cultures, casts, language and even with different clothing and cuisines style.
