No doubt interaction removes misconceptions, always, when ever delegates from both countries got together they expressed totally different we often hear on media about conflicts and insecurity. I personally experienced through interaction, when I participated in SAARC training program at SHRDC, Islamabad. Some our fellows were Indian and they were very happy by participating in this program here in Islamabad. They said that they were being threatened there in India that its very risky and they were worry before arrival but now they are feeling very happy and secured. Same have been reported by our delegations, those got opportunity to visit India.
Therefore, we must arrange such like venture programs so people from both terrotories have opportunity to get together and express and exchange their views and know more about each other through interaction. This not only result to remove the misconceptions but to promote love, friendship and promotion of trade between two countries and it can play vital role in promoting peace in region. We have been living together for centuries and have same culture, language and life styles.
Its need of time that we end up the all conflicts and start good relations. it would not only help in development of our economy but in peace building in the region and this all is only possible through dialogue and interaction of the citizens.
Agree with you :) Thanks for sharing your experience...whenever we people get a chance, we only discover how similar we are and ponder over why these conflicts exist when we both desire peace and friendship..
