Amid the ongoing tension between India and Pakistan, here’s a little boy from India who clearly remembers how he used to spend his holidays in Pakistan’s Hyderabad where his maternal side lives. He used to roam the streets with his cousins, eat good food, enjoy a game or two and come back to a family who loved him with all their heart.

In a post shared by Facebook page Humans of Bombay, this little boy explained how he used to travel to Hyderabad with his mother almost every other summer and how some of his best memories are rooted in the place. He reminisces of the time when they all used to sit to watch India-Pakistan cricket match, the two sides used to sit seperately but later come together over a meal and laugh. He also said that he wishes people could forget all the diferences and the situation was as happy as his vacation was.

Here’s what he said.

“Almost every other summer I’ve travelled to Hyderabad in Pakistan to visit my cousins. My mother’s side of the family lives there, so some of the best memories I have has been when my entire family comes together. My cousins and I play outside on the street all day and then run to get some pain puri…but you know didi, their puris are so big, they are like burgers!

Very often when we’re there, a cricket match between India and Pakistan will be going on so we will all sit on one side of the hall and my mother’s side sits on the other side. Everyone is only saying things like ‘oh that was a fluke shot!’ or now you watch ‘next ball is a wicket’ and going crazy cheering. But after everything, when the match is over and every possible comment has been made we sit together and share our food, laughing about everything under the sun. Sometimes I wish everyone could do that and forget about the differences….I wish it could be like that all the time.”

      First thing came to my mind was he a Hindu or a Muslim? That's how my neuronal connections steer me all the time. I would like to add something unique to this story. I grew up in an isolated region in mountains. Nothing, means we had primitive communism - plain old barter system. Our village got electricity in 2007. Almost over 90% youth joined army. During British raj even more joined armed forces. A colonel from our village got a young Hindu boy during 1965 war. His new name was Nazaam Din. He worked as slave in an isolated region. Later he died of cra. I always wanted to write about him and others liked him -victims.

                So 99% of Hindu readers do not like the story of this innocent kid who talked about love and friendship.It also shows that mindset of hindus of India.I wonder when would you ppl grow and turn into normal humans?

                          Happy ending of this story would be to annex stan in India and this way all outstanding issues including k would be settled once and for all

                            Does anyone accept this little boy to narrate such a story ? Before this also, some stories have appeared on FB;so naturally,doubt arises about the authenticity of such stories.(ISI,political duplicity of Pak !).

                              For every kid who has this kind of a story, there are at least a thousand other kids who learn fake history and dream of bombing India some day. How about providing a 'balanced' story on some of them too? For example, a young Ajmal Kasab.
