NEW DELHI: An old photo from the Humans Of Pakistan Facebook page is suddenly, over a year later, seeing renewed traction. Originally posted on October 1, 2015, the photo shows two boys speaking about their favourite daily pastime. They meet at the river every day, and along with a friend, throw stones in the water. Whoever’s stone travels the furthest, wins. They do this every day. The boys, however, do not know their friends name. That’s because the friend is on the other side of the river -- the Indian side.

As hostilities between India and Pakistan reach yet another high, with TV channels and newspaper spreads clamouring for war, the Facebook post has found new meaning. Humanity transcends borders.

"We have a friend who lives on the other side of the river. This time everyday, he comes back from school. He always stands over there and throws stones in the water. We do the same. Whoever gets their stone to skip the furthest distance wins. We play this game everyday."

- What is your friend's name?

"We don't know. The river makes it hard for us to talk to each other. But we do know that he is an Indian Kashmiri because that's on the river's other side."

The comments on the post and accompanying the shares are largely messages of peace and cooperation.
