India And Pakistan: Forging A Friendship

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

With friendship day round the corner, how can one not pay tribute to the legendary kinship between the neighbors and brothers in suffering India and Pakistan? Now don’t get me wrong when I say that, because I do believe that India and Pakistan have common woes: terrorism, internal clashes and what not. And this only serves to draw them closer, doesn’t it? With frequent fruitful peace talks between the foreign ministers of these countries, I can almost imagine the camaraderie between the chief politicos.
Jokes aside, one can draw a lot of inspiration from their love for one another: one wouldn’t want to be caught in the crossfire of their sentiments towards each another that can see on a daily basis. The inhabitants of Kashmir would know what I am talking about. Their relationship is akin to the one between the brothers Sugreev and Bali from Ramayana. Such loyalty and trust! And adding spark to this fire of ‘bromance’ is none other than the Pakistani Foreign Minister S.M. Qureshi whose tact and diplomacy make him the top contender for the Nobel Peace Prize this year. Rumour has it that he is an even more popular candidate than Obama. Isn’t that a feat? Pakistan must be so proud.
The only minor blip that is standing in the way of their path to eternal bliss and peace is Pakistan’s reluctance to make any headway on the 26/11 issue which one can be sure is due to be resolved within a reasonable time period of a billion years, maybe (if India gets lucky). An even more insignificant issue is Kashmir. With the success of Agra Summit one wonders why this issue hasn’t become a non-issue already, given the tactful handling of this Summit by ex-Prez General Musharraf.
The presence of such visionaries who advocate only peace provide hope for millions across both the countries. After all, the situation in Siachen is utopic – thanks to the respect and understanding from across the border. In fact, the future looks pretty secure since the production of weapons of mass destruction from the terror cradle is only found in nightmares.
So, there is no need to worry, my dear countrymen, when Pakistan stands sentinel in Kashmir leaving you with sweet dreams to chew on. It will hold well on its promise of punishing the perpetrators of 26/11. After all, since when did it give us a chance to complain? Godspeed! Amen!
