What I wrote to Amit

About Pervez and Peace

Amit Varma, India’s most prolific blogger, reports from Feroz Shah Kotla stadium, New Delhi.

Pervez Musharraf and Manmohan Singh just came on to the field and met all the players, lined up in green and blue. When they were introduced to the Pakistan players, Manmohan led the way; when it was the Indians’ turn, Musharraf led the way. They waved to the crowd after that, walking around a bit, and the crowd cheered madly.

I know out history isn’t too enouraging, but I’m not a cynic about this peace process. As I’ve said here and here, I think we’re on the right track. I hope it leads somewhere [India Uncut]
