Moving further East, India and Pakistan's decision to launch a bus service across the ceasefire line dividing the disputed region of Kashmir is at least a positive gesture.
Regarding Kashmir, I bought a DVD of the Mission Kashmir move that Suketa Mehta talks about working on in his wonderful "Maximum City" book. I haven't watched it yet, but I was surprised to see it was a mainstream studio release from Columbia Tri-Star Home Video in the UK rather than an import or speciality product. There must be quite a market for it I suppose. (I just checked amazon.co.uk and the sales rank is 9,814).
