Will This Happen?

Dr. Manmohan Singh dreams of 'having breakfast in Amritsar, lunch in Lahore and dinner in Kabul'.
"I dream of a day, while retaining our respective national identities, one can have breakfast in Amritsar, lunch in Lahore and dinner in Kabul. That is how my forefathers lived. That is how I want our grandchildren to live."
Its a grand and bold vision which is definitely possible, but that requires not mere grand vision but bold actions on the ground. If Germany can re-unite, India and Pakistan can at least make their borders irrelevant. But that will not happen till Kashmir issue is resolved.
