The VPM's Centre for International studies held a national seminar on "India-Pakistan relations in pursuit of peace" in Mumbai in April 2004. This volume is the edited updated version of papers submitted by fourteen eminent thinkers on different aspects of the subject. Low political issues such as the role of Bollywood was discussed by Mahesh Bhatt in his inaugural address, while how cultural relations can help to improve relations was analysed by Maneesha Tikekar, P.M. Kamath argued in favour of the government of Indian instituting Mahatma Gandhi Fellowships to establish educational exchanges between the two countries. With a strong conviction that improved economic and trade relations through multilateral and bilateral forums would help in achieving better political understanding, three economists - Avadhoor Nadkarni, Pushpa trivedi and R.G. Gidadhubli - discuss various avenues open for two nations to concretely act upon.
