  1. Excellente! You guys have done a fabulous job. I think your crew has done a great job in portraying views from both sides and it makes me really feel this whole issue is so juvenile and it’s like we’re hanging on to a dead horse from 1947 and not moving on and not being where we should be- now.

    It reminds me of what my aunt said when she saw Niagara Falls from both sides in Canada and the U.S. She said ” What a world it would be if India and Pakistan had relations like U.S. and Canada did. So much war and wastage would never occur. More funds from each country’s govt. would go towards supporting its people for social programs.”



  2. Unfortunately, the history of India and Pakistan is more like Ireland than like anything in the New World. I actually prefer the fact that India doesn’t have the clout in its neighborhood that USA has in North America. That said, I do know where Swati’s aunt is coming from. I, too, want a loose South Asian Union. Would that require a breakup of India like we’ve had the Partition and subsequent creation of Bangladesh? Who knows? China’s not going to be breaking up anytime soon, and that gives its neighbors to the south something to worry about.
