The Perfect Way to End 2015 — Lessons from the Modi-Sharif Visit

The relationship between India and Pakistan is an old and strong one. This year, Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Nawaz Sharif just strengthened it.

The Perfect Way to End 2015 — Lessons from the Modi-Sharif Visit

As 2015 winds to a close, the relationship between India and Pakistan — ancient relatives, modern-day neighbours — is seeing a delightful turn (we hope) for the better.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had recntly dropped in to wish Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif a very happy birthday (the way neighbours sometimes do), during which time it is believed that he even said the words, “Jung karke kya paya, na zameen mili na jannat paya (What has war yielded, neither land nor heaven).”

Now PM Sharif has responded, saying that “it is high time the countries put aside their hostilities”. He also said that goodwill gestures like PM Modi’s are the “solution to many an ill”.

We understand that sometimes people see the world in different ways, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get along.

And even if we’re not always the best of friends — we know it’s cool to hang out together. Thank you for reminding us, Prime Ministers Modi and Sharif.
