Indian and Pakistani Students showcase Dance Performances over Skype
Aaghaz-e-Dosti, a citizen diplomacy group, conducts peace education activities in schools and colleges in India and Pakistan. Among these peace education activities is the Indo-Pak Classroom Connect program which connects two classrooms through video conferencing and initiates an informal dialogue between the students. The session facilitates them to know each other, explore the everyday life, culture and to bond over the similarities and learn from the uniqueness. This session helps to dispel the popular stereotypes that restricts people to people contact and peacebuilding.
Indo-Pak classroom connect sessions have witnessed students bonding over similar food culture, singing songs together, reciting peace poems, celebrating birthday of a student by cutting a cake on both sides and the 9th Indo-Pak Classroom connect added another gem to this program.
In the 9th Indo-Pak Classroom connect that had connected students of Gujarat Public School (Vadodara, Gujarat, India) and SMB Fatima Jinnah Government Girls’ School (Karachi, Pakistan), students did dance performances for each other. The Karachi students showcased a Sindhi dance form and also danced on a popular folk song “Lathe ki Chadar”. The Gujarati students from India did a garba.
