Through the accounts of its eight notable Indian or Pakistani contributors, this book makes an important statement by highlighting old friendships and a common past.

Muhammad Ali Siddiqui is Director of the Quaid-i-Azam Academy.Review:
'an honest and touching record of the views and feelings of a cross-section of the representative intelligentsia of Pakistan and India. OUP deserves to be congratulated for having published a volume which leaves the readers on both sides of the Great Divide with a sense of hope rather than
despair as the nation celebrates the 50th year of independence.'
