We’re thrilled to share the cover of India vs Pakistan: why can’t we just be friends? by Husain Haqqani. This riveting account of the troubled India-Pakistan relationship looks at the mistakes, missed opportunities and misunderstandings on both sides, which have derailed peace attempts in the past. What can the two countries now do to finally make peace?
Executive Editor Nandini Mehta, had this to say about the cover:
“In a way, cricket reflects the paradox of the relationship between the two countries- so close and yet so far. An India-Pakistan cricket match brings to the fore all the hostility that marks political relations. For both countries, much more than just a cricket victory seems to rest on the outcome and yet, when Pakistan plays another country, the Indian crowds always root for Pakistan, we want them to win against Australia, Britain and so on, because then they our our brother, our closest neighbour.”
