They fought a fierce legal battle against each other in the Supreme Court of India for many days. Heated arguments and counter-arguments took place inside the courtroom for the last 40 days. But when the battle was over, lawyers Rajeev Dhawan and K Parasaran set an example of how the fabric of unity keeps our country together. Rajeev Dhavan represented the Muslim side in Ayodhya case while K Parasaran represented the Hindu side. They argued fiercely when the court was in session but once the proceedings were over, both of them came together for a photo.

Both of them stood beside each other, their hands on each other's shoulders. And looked at the shutterbugs who clicked what can be a photo that probably will be remembered for a long time.
