“Pens not guns. Words not bullets.” – This is the motto of ‘Kids Beyond Borders’, an initiative taken by social online radio NRI Samay, to bring together children from India and Pakistan.
NRI Samay is a social community radio based in Los Angeles. It brings forward the unheard stories and voices from India, to ensure that Indians residing outside the country get a sense of positive things happening back home..
‘Kids Beyond Borders’ was started by a Suresh Ediga, an NRI living in New York, after a terrorist attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar.
