It is not just India that marks 68 years of freedom, so does its neighbour Pakistan.
Very much a part of the Indian subcontinent, both countries share similar history until partition.
While Pakistan's Independence Day is celebrated on 14th August, India's Independence Day is celebrated on 15th August.
