Indians, Pakistanis fuse national anthems to make 'Peace Anthem'

Well, on the 70th anniversary of the independence of India and Pakistan, Voice of Ram (a group helmed by Ram Subramanian, who has time and again produced creatives encouraging peace between the neighbours) has brought together artistes from both sides of the border to sing the each other's and their own national anthems, and the end result is hauntingly handsome, and there's no way you can listen to the whole piece without getting goosebumps.

Many from India and Pakistan were surprised by the video and have reacted positively, thinking thanks Indians for the initiative.
