Imagine a country where almost everyone you meet would welcome you to their city/country. Where you couldn’t walk down the road without being offered at least 5 cups of chai. Where a policemen would flag down cars and insist the drivers take you to where you are going to save you the hassle of walking. Where someone would pay for your lunch even if they didn’t eat with you, and where you can guarantee you will be invited to someone’s house for dinner every night. Where the General police officer would offer you his own bed and sleep on the floor so you don’t have to. Where random people would stop you to ask “is there anything you need right now?” Or where shopkeepers would sell you their items below cost because they are just happy to be serving you. Sound like a dream? It’s not, this place is real, is called Pakistan…
Karakoram Highway and Passu Cathedral. - Pakistan Most beautiful road in the world
Many families in Pakistan don’t have family in India including mine, but at the same time there are many who have loved ones across the border. This is probably the most beautiful video I’ve seen on the subject. From the source: “The India-Pakistan partition in 1947 separated many friends and families overnight. A granddaughter in India decides to surprise her grandfather on his birthday by reuniting him with his childhood friend (who is now in Pakistan) after over 6 decades of separation, with a little help from Google Search.”
Got a little teary, not gonna lie.
