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 power to one to stand strong in the opposite conditions. It also increased the strength of sacrifice which not only saved the beloved but the lives of several innocent persons without knowing their religions. Hate could be seen very easily when the question had come about two communities the Hindu and the Muslim. In spite of love and sacrifice many innocent people have lost their lives in the communal fire.Because with respect they have lived together in majority peacefully. On the other hand they were not gratified and satisfied with the decision of government regarding partition of India. I have attempted to look into the emotional condition which has changed due to the declaration of independence and partition. Sometimes people have changed their behavior towards others under 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 were soul friends from the starting till the end. So that this was only love which empowered the man to commit sacrifice for their loved ones and others. Hate which cannot be vanished by the victims and their relatives as well as love and sacrifice of their friends and relatives which gives strength to victims to start their lives again and it could not be removed by the mind of readers too.
