The Indo-Pak rivalry has existed for a very long time. The two countries are divided by borders and certain past and present disparities, in the midst of all of this, Sneha Biswas, a LinkedIn user, recently shared a moving story of how friendship surpasses boundaries. Growing up in India, Sneha had only ever heard stories about Pakistan's rivalries and differences with the nation. On her first day at Harvard Business School, Sneha described how she met her now-closest friend from Pakistan and how that meeting changed her perspective. 

Over "many chais, biryanis, financial models, and case study preparations," Sneha and her Pakistani friend got closer. Sneha was deeply moved by her friend's story of defying norms and following her dreams. Sneha shared a picture of the two proudly flaunting their national flags on Harvard's popular Flag Day. "Look at us on the famous flag day at #Harvard - flaunting our flags and smiling away at the joy of "breaking barriers" - not just literally between India and Pakistan, but also for the countless little girls from India and Pakistan who are scared to shoot for the stars." Sneha wrote.

Surely you two share a lifelong friendship that may bring changes across the borders for girls on both sides and be inspired to lead’’. While another user wrote, ‘’We built walls between each other and thus, it’s up to us to bring them down."

Sneha's bond with her Pakistani friend has undoubtedly revived the idea of true friendship and given nations a new hope for peace and unity.
