Indian students, teachers leave for Pakistan

A 19-member team of Indian students and teachers Thursday left for Pakistan on a five-day visit that will take them to three leading schools and some tourist sites in Lahore.

Arranged by Indian group Routes 2 Roots along with a Pakistani NGO, the tour is part of an ongoing programme that involves exposing young minds from the two countries to India and Pakistan.

The students and teachers, drawn from Mumbai and New Delhi, will cross into Pakistan by foot after reaching Amritsar by train. They will return Monday.

The three schools from Delhi which have contributed to the visit are Sanskriti School, St Paul's School and B.R. Mehta School, the organisers said.

In Lahore, the students and teachers will interact with their counterparts in City School and two branches of ILM School.

The Indians will also visit Lahore Museum, Lahore Fort, Badshahi Mosque, Minar-i-Pakistan, Jahangir's Tomb and a gurudwara. They will also be provided time to shop and see Lahore.
