A special collection from facebook marketing team of Kya Dilli Kya Lahore – an upcoming bollywood movie in post-independence, post-partition era of 1948. This war film is about hope between two countries. Bollyges below are from the movie, whereas remaining images are collected with hard work of Kya Dilli Kya Lahore team.
Tucked away between the border of Bengal and Bihar, lies in the heart of India-“Pakistan” which is a remote village that has survived 65 years of bitter relations that have dominated South Asian history. It was in the hope that their Muslim friends, who fled during the partition to then-East Pakistan, will return one day that Sikhs and Hindus named their village Pakistan. Even though certain fractions on both sides of the border have tried to break down ties between the two nation states, the people of the village still hold on to the hope of seeing their friends.
This hope and belief of these villagers encourage peaceful relations between India and Pakistan.
The Sikandar of Kubi Temple
This is a story of Sikandar Chadio, a Pakistani Muslim who stays in a small town called Johi in Pakistan. Johi is a town which has no Hindu residents. There exists a temple called Kubi in this town and Sikandar and his family are the guardians of the temple. Quite astonishingly, He says “I and my children were all born in this temple and we all are the watchmen of this building“. Inspite of several attacks, robberies Sikandar and his family still protect the temple and put up a fight against invaders.
Sikandar could have easily destroyed the temple or created something new out of it, a Home or a Mosque, but he respected the sentiments of the Hindu owners who handed over the temple to his grandfather and still guards it.
