Hina Rabbani Khar alighted as an icon of style, fashion and glamour; largely succeeded in keeping the spot light away from the meaning less talks; and rightly so. Apart from students of Indo-Pak relations even the Page-3 readers followed the Hydrabad House meeting. An oversize work-bag from Hermes made a vanity statement and her carefully chosen wardrobe found mention in media coverage.

They are in state of war and unless one of them is defeated or both get exhausted to give up the causes of their belligerency nothing will change.

It is in the psych and in the very genesis of two nations which were never there.
