Tranquil tyrant

India and Pakistan have always had the sense of rivalry. Is it the hype created in the media or the politics of the non-peace loving elements of the society? Ask any commoner from either of the countries and they will have the unanimous answer of "We want peace"! Then why the rivalry?

Tyrant on the field and a perfect ambassador of his country and peace Shahid Afridi won many hearts for this interview of his. When a person is at such a pedestal and all eyes on him, whatever he speaks ha got it own weight. He was the perfect idol of Aman ki Asha. Although I hate to see him on the field, my respect for him has soared beyond measure. I just wish all the dignitaries of respective countries show such mannerism!

So rightly said
"If they want peace, nations should avoid the pin-pricks that precede cannon shots!" 
~Napoleon Bonaparte
