- Jai Hind

This is the last Indian village

before the Line of Control

Soopra village


- Hello

Where are you from?


The Capital

I'm from Maliyabad

Ever heard of it?

- Yes, sir

When was that?

Just now sir, from you!

This highway goes along

the river from Srinagar to Leh

It's the only link

between Kashmir and Ladakh

You see those mountains?

The LOC is behind that range

and across it are pakistani posts

You'll see it today

Everything okay here?

- Yes, sir. Nothing to worry

Where's Capt. Ravindran?

- In the bunker, sir

Allright, carry on

Do you see the pakistani

post over there?

Wow! Unbelievable

That pillar marks the LOC

and from here to there

is no man's land...

Not ours Not theirs

Even so, we exchange

fire almost every day

If there's firing

we also retaliate

That's amazing

It's like I've always known,

but somehow...

I've never felt this Indian before

I'm an Indian

I still remember seeing

these borders for the first time

I understand how you must feel

Come, let's go

I have been moved by

the affection and hospitality...

...extended to me...

...and the delegation

of eminent persons...

...who accompanied me

jammu and Kashmir is one

of the issues...

...we are discussing...

...within the framework of

our composite dialogue

You were watching our live

telecast from the Wagah border

This is a historic day

Today, India and pakistan

can hope that these steps...

will bridge the distance

that has long divided us

Stay tuned for the news

in English, Thank you

Out. - Guruvindhar, was that okay?

- Perfect

Romila, call for you

Thank you

Hi Rajiv, tell me?

I've to read the news at 8,

lets meet after that

Okay, bye


This must be special

- What do you mean?

I mean, we met by chance

kept running into each other
