In a world of digital interplay, notably in a pandemic-hit world, in-person conferences are uncommon. Pandemic or no pandemic, for Pakistanis and Indians to satisfy with one another is even rarer. We’re joyful that we had been a part of this assembly. We bought to know extra about their tradition. Really, I all the time questioned why birds keep in the identical place once they can fly wherever on earth. Then I requested myself the identical query. After which it occurred to me and my Interior Wheel colleagues why not invite girls from Pakistan to Kartarpur Sahib,” mentioned Dr Nijjar.

We on the IWC needed to make a giant distinction and that’s the reason we’re planning extra such excursions sooner or later.”
