United In tolerance

Turns out that there is far lesser tolerance, to debate about tolerance! Strange are the ways a country unites to address intolerance.

Any country swayed by emotions than reason, by opinions than objectivity always has chaos as its best friend. Yet united we stand and divided we fall in agreement or disagreement.

Mythbusters : India for Pak

Recently Indiblogger and ZeeTV got together to promote the launch of ZeeTV’s Zindagi channel which will showcase content from Pakistan via their stories or artistes or short tele films. That really set me thinking about my perceptions about Pakistan. and it led me to think of perceptions that an average Pakistani might have for the regular Indian? So I checked out Pakistan TV content on youtube – debates,chat shows,news etc just to get a sense on what are the common misconceptions the Pakistani people might have about India.

Hasan Nissar,Najam Sethi,Zaid Hamid  or shows like Good Morning with Farah and Hazbe Haal caught my attention.It triggered some perceptions of my own and I’m guessing when Pakistani’s hear or see similar content from India it must trigger perceptions. Like the Saas Bahu soaps ,Aaj Tak Parda Fash debates, or the cheesy attention grabbing breaking news from various channels in India.

As we attempt yet another peace process for the umpteenth time, here is a small article which tries to debunk some myths that the regular Paksitanis might have about regular Indians.It gives India’s point of view  from a common man’s perspective.
