LPU Distance Education Student's joint endeavour "Bolti Khidki" winning hearts across the borders

LPU DE student Sandeep Dutt (Ludhiana) along with his Pakistani friend Faisal Hayat (Rawalpindi) has created a wonderful online platform - a Facebook page named "Bolti Khidki", where people from both sides of India - Pakistan border are interacting with each other, telling their stories of survival (tale of partition) and even finding their old acquaintances from pre-partition times.  
This has caught the attention of media also and recently articles in this regard have been published in “Indian Express” and “Mail Today”. 

Bolti Khidki (The Speaking Window) is evidently evoking a huge amount of interest in both India and Pakistan. Many stories of partition, narrating the first hand experiences of the people from both the countries, have been shared through this Facebook Page and it has already garnered more than 6000 followers till date.
