Happy Independence Day

… to all my friends in Dushman Des 😀


All Things Pakistan has a series of insightful posts on events around Pakistan’s independence. Do check them out!

Tomorrow, on the occasion of India’s independence day, NDTV has a bouquet of interesting programmes. The ones to watch out for are Azaad Humsafar and Freedom at Midnight.

The thing to note about these programmes is that it’s a joint production between Pakistan’s Geo TV and India’s NDTV. (a first of its kind?).

Indiantelevision.com says

The one hour programme Freedom at Midnight: 60 years of India and Pakistan’s Independence will bring together politicians, soldiers, artistes and ordinary people from both sides of the border. The show will be anchored by Barkha Dutt from Dubai and an anchor from Pakistan live in Dubai, Islamabad and New Delhi.
