    HINA RABBANI KHAR

    It should be possible to build beyond Confidential Building Measures (CBM) because she seems to be such a terrific lady. For example, one of the most precious universal gifts that Pakistan and India share is Classical Music. Countless compositions, Methodology and style of playing music and singing music have disappeared in the hostility between our countries. To keep this oral tradition alive, we must make music teaching and playing as free of bureaucracy as possible. If we don’t let the flowers of sound grow and flourish in both Pakistan and India, what we face is a musical desert. Remember, once our common tradition disappears, it will be impossible to bring it back because the musical culture in south Asia is common to only Pakistan and India.

    It is unbelievable that just within our borders in Kutch, Punjab and so on… there are pockets of musicians who are simply separated by a historical event from their families and traditions and have not seen them since Partition. They stoically carry on some of the rarest traditions of music and folk art with very little support from anywhere.

    Supporting cross border exchanges among ordinary people and not simply stars would make great ambassadors for peace, understanding, fellowship and acceptance of each nation.
