In this article I have tried to explain the love, sacrifice and hate as natural emotions which occurred at the particular place and time due to the particular situation. Love gives the power to one to stand strong in the opposite condition. It also increased the strength of sacrifice which not only saved the beloved but the lives of many unknown persons and it also doesn’t matter from which religion they were. Hate could be seen very easily when the question comes of two communities Hindu and Muslim. In spite of love and sacrifice many innocent people have lost their lives in the communal fire. Just because they could not respect the others’ religions and the decision of the Government. I have attempted to look into the emotional condition which has changed due to the declaration of partition. Sometimes it has changed because of the pressure and sometimes they have changed their behavior because they were not of same religion. But it has been also observed that communal war and fear of death were not enough to change the feelings of love towards the beloved or for those who lived peacefully in the majority of community like families. So that this was only love which empowered the man to commit sacrifice for loved ones and others to whom he doesn’t know. But the hate which cannot be forgotten by the victims and also could not be removed by the mind of readers too.
