A Letter of Peace for Pakistan

Asian Age - 17 January 2006
Mumbai, India

Bangalore: It was an unusual sight at the M. Chinnaswamy stadium on Monday. These were not cricket lovers in the thousands watching their heroes from the stands. Instead, hundreds of children sat on a huge tarpaulin spread across the ground, penning their messages of love and peace for the people of Pakistan .

A carnival like atmosphere pervaded as the children put their pens to the tarpaulin writing messages of love and peace. In the process, they were writing what the organisers, Friends Without Borders claim, is the "world's largest letter" to be sent to Pakistan.

Artist John Devaraj of Born Free Art School was there at work alongside the children who included both boys and girls. The tarpaulin measuring 80 by 120 feet, will now travel to Mumbai, Ahmedabad, New Delhi and Amritsar before reaching Pakistan .

"Dear friends in Pakistan , let us join hearts in friendship. Together we can make a better world," was the common message which the children wanted to send across the border.

The concept is initiated by two Americans, Mark Peters and John Silliphant. Mr Silliphant said, "Children lack the biases that perpetuate conflicts. They simply want to be friends. This is an experiment to see what happens when this natural goodwill becomes a factor in international relations."

  hearts It may be long before the law of love will be recognised in international affairs. The machineries of government stand between and hide the hearts of one people from those of another. -- M.K. Gandhi
