Singing for peace
While Pakistan's own Rahat Fateh Ali Khan was invited especially to sing at the Queens Baton Relay ceremony in India, Aman ki Asha got together a musical event on this side of the border. After the Peace Chain knot was tied, the Rangers' Luddi Party gave an energetic performance, followed by a wonderful performance from Jassi Lailpuria Singh (yes, he's a Sikh, and yes, he's Pakistani).
When the Baton Relay reached the stage, a brass band played the national anthem. Governor Punjab Salmaan Taseer accompanied the Baton across to the other side. Later, Najam Shiraz and his little daughter Haya, and Jawad Ahmed wowed the crowd with their tremendous energy. Well known educationist and artist Salima Hashmi, former cricket hero Zaheer Abbas and his lovely wife, interior designer Sam Abbas, were also present.
