We and all our students had great fun, the idea of hankies peace chain, made by children was really awesome and distinctive. We wish you all the best for Aman ki Asha... There should be no end to the peace process.
For my dear Indian friends:
I am sorry that I was not able to contact you from Wagah... My phone stopped working because of mobile phone jammers, but I was so concerned and anxious on the opposite end. I am writing to you as an ordinary concerned citizen of Pakistan. I so appreciate the organisation and the warmth which was so apparent from the Indian side, from the gorgeous decoration of the gate to each and every gesture.
I am not sure I will ever see you and those cute Indian kids again or not, or if I would ever experience the warmth in the loving eyes of Roshni, who was with us at the rehearsal, and all other girls and boys on the other side of the border and their positivity of attitudes... But the charm of the beautiful event will always live in my mind.
I wish this peace chain may travel from borders to hearts, minds and souls. No force can stop positivity and truth from penetrating into other hearts. Heart to heart, there are NO boundaries, NO borders, NO closed gates and no negative thinking.
Humanity is all about love and we all are humans fortunately, and more fortunate are we who are working for peace building. I feel so moved while writing this to you. Accept my heartfelt love, gratitude and affection.
Please share this with everyone who was involved in the organisation of this wonderful event. Hats off!!

The News on Sunday Special Report: India Pakistan prisoners more editions
We probably didn't need to do this Special Report. Newspaper stories don't matter when it comes to Indians in Pakistani jails and vice versa. In fact, 'vice versa' sums it up. We do to them what they do to us.
Except when the two countries decide to begin talking, yet again! This time a little before the foreign secretary level talks, some Pakistani prisoners were released by India (and vice versa must have happened) and some more were release....read more
