The first set of letters was carried to Pakistan yesterday. This novel effort is being assisted by the FriendsWithoutBorders.org people.
"This is a beautiful event, being led by the children of both the countries. It has very positive ramifications for the future of the two nations, once this generation of children grow up and take the reins of leadership in both countries," Dr Singh said.
