Kayani, who arrived at the Wagah border on Tuesday along with a 20-member delegation from Pakistan, would be the chief guest at Sanawar's Lawrence School foundation day on April 15.
"There should be more exchange programmes of teachers and students between the schools of two nations to forge friendlier ties and dispel misunderstandings," Kayani said. "Misunderstandings will disappear if a Pakistani student has an Indian teacher and vice versa. These boys and girls will bridge the gap between the two nations."
He said the scholarship programme would enable students to live in each other's countries and help them understand ground realities.
He said the ice between the managements of Indian and Pakistani Lawrence institutes broke in 2004 when he led a delegation to Lawrence school in Lovedale, Ooty. "We developed an understanding after a series of meetings."

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
