" It's the same land, the same sky, but perceptions differ
it's the same road, the same turn, but journeys differ. "

"It's the same sky, the same land but perceptions differ.
Iit's the same road,the same curve but journeys differ..."
People of both nations- India and Pakistan are home to people with similar facets despite their dissimilar names. People there long for freedom as do the people in India. Freedom to voice their views. Freedom for women to step out of home fearlessly. Freedom to dissect the ignominous face of abysmal poverty. Freedom to cross borders without being scrutinized through those torrid eyes which consider us potential terrorists. Freedom to chase corruption out of their country. Freedom to see their children playing happily with children baptized under other religion. Every family has its everyday fights; insignificant and significant, striving for a better life, a better future. The common man, the hoi polloi does not want war. We want peace and bonhomie. We want a future that would reflect the past, the history of 19th century...ONE  country, the golden bird, may be a INDISTAN or PAKINDIA..... On the signing note I  would echo the sentiments from a popular bollywood film-
 "panchchhi, nadiyan, pawan ke jhonke.......
koi sarhad naa inhe roke....
sarhad insaanoen k liye hai....
socho, tumne aur maine, kya paya insaan hoke......"
