Indian PM Narendra Modi made clever use of social media to describe his interaction with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. He avoided politics and focused on emotional ties that resonate with the masses in India and Pakistan. Mothers are revered, almost worshiped in the popular culture of the region. Modi scored a few points by telling the world how open-minded he is about Pakistan and also avoided making a tough statement just as he became India’s PM. We wish Modi and Sharif the best to take this region out of the constant war-mongering. Peace the only way forward.
