Longest love letter to hit Mumbai

DNA - 16 February 2006
Mumbai, India
by Shaikh Ayaz

Come Sunday and school children from Mumbai and all across India can write letters to their counterparts in Pakistan and extend a hand of friendship - thanks to an effort by Friends Without Borders, a group of Americans who are unveiling the longest love letter in Wankhede Stadium.

The purpose, as Mark Jacobs, one of the volunteers puts it, “Is to join hearts in friendship. The idea is to forget any animosity and initiate peace.” The project, Jacobs says, took a long time.

“But what's really interesting is that over 100 schools have participated. We would love to grab the attention of every child in Mumbai and ask them to write one love message to children across the border. We want the children from both the countries to remain in touch thereafter,” he adds.

The event meanwhile won't remain confined to the Wankhede Stadium as the volunteers will pose as postmen and travel across town to garner support. 

Interestingly, after taking the messages from Mumbai, Jacobs and his team will travel to Lahore in a truck with their letter and will present it to Pakistanis on March 19. “We will stop at places and try to spread the message. We will take about 30 days to reach Lahore and we are sure we will cover a good distance,” ends Jacobs.
