Letter to Pakistan President Gen. Pervez Musharraf

Dear Mr. President

I have always been an admirer of your personality and frankness of speech. You come straight to the point and do not beat around the bush in the manner that is characteristic of politicians. I hope you and our Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh can together put behind us the disputes of the past and script a new era in India-Pak relations.

I sincerely look forward to the day when Indians and Pakistanis will be able to visit each other’s cities as they visit their own today. If the Europeans can forge a European Union despite tremendous ethnic differences, why can’t we? We have a common culture, common aspirations and even common goals.

We Indians love Pakistani art and culture, your music, your fashion and much more. We are also confident that ordinary Pakistanis too love us and respect and admire the good things about India.

I hope and wish that the future will be better, brighter and more beautiful than the past!

Yours faithfully

Vijay Padiyar

Bangalore, India
