While Pakistan holds military exercise close to the Indian border, its people are enduring different challenges daily, much like their Indian counterpart.
There's not much of a difference there, barring the barbed wire that separates the two nations. From socio-economic challenges to discrimination, both the countries face similar challenges.
However, every cloud has a silver lining and both the countries do share a certain degree of friendship, despite their differences. Here are some pictures, describing the past week in Pakistan.
