Penning spirit of friendship

Hindustan Times - 20 February 2006
Mumbai, India
by Megha Sood

On Sunday, over 2,000 students from around 25 schools all over Mumbai gathered at the Wankhede Stadium in Churchgate.

Not to play or watch cricket but to write the `World's Longest Love Letter'.

The event organised by 'Friends without Borders' aims to spread communal harmony in India and Pakistan through the longest love letter, from Indian children to their Pakistani counterparts. The letter measures 240 by 360 feet (73 by 110 metres).

The text on the letter, written in Urdu, English and Hindi, says, Dear Children of Pakistan, Let's join hearts in friendship. Together we can make a better world. The Children of India.

"The main aim of this exercise is to connect children in India and Pakistan. The letter will be delivered to Pakistan and kids there will reply to the letters.

The 86,400 square feet letter will then be cut into 551 pieces, which will be used as shelter in the earthquake-affected areas," said John Devraj, a member of the organisation.

The letter also consists of the names and addresses of Indian schools, which will help establish school-to-school relationships.

"The letter will continue to be worked on as it travels from Mumbai to Ahmedabad and Amritsar. Children will have a chance to paint on the canvas and sign along its borders.

This will then be given to schools in Pakistan to enable school-to-school letter writing programmes," said John.
