India to lift ban on Pakistani channels?
India has assured Pakistan that it will consider a proposal to lift the ban on Pakistani television channels in the country. The assurance came after Pakistani foreign secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani's strong pitch last week proposing that India allow transmission of not just Pakistan government (PTV) but also private channels, both news and non-news.
India and Pakistan are looking at signing a MoU for promotion of arts and culture during the visit of foreign minister S M Krishna to Pakistan in early September. The two sides are expected to further hasten the groundwork for Krishna's visit as Pakistan's high commissioner-designate Salman Bashir finally presented his credentials before President Pratibha Patil and assumed full charge after weeks of waiting. As a former foreign secretary, Bashir was instrumental in bringing ties back on track after the hiatus caused by 26/11 attacks.

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
