The Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, has commended the ongoing effort to encourage children from India and Pakistan to write letters of friendship to each other. The effort is being assisted by FriendsWithoutBorders.org. The first set of such letters was carried to Pakistan yesterday (on March 24).
Dr. Singh described this as a beautiful event, being led by the children of both countries. It has very positive ramifications for the future of both nations, once this generation of children grows up and takes on the reins of leadership in both countries.
While thanking the organizers, the Prime Minister also saluted the children of India who have written heartfelt letters of friendship. Dr. Singh encouraged more children to join this movement.
