With the help of the Canadian High Commission in Islamabad, the KaraFilm Society and a major national newspaper, Mehta’s film Water, the last of the trilogy that started with Fire and Earth, was shown at a private screening at the city’s new Arts Council auditorium. Diplomatic victories between India and Pakistan are few and far apart especially if the Canadians are involved. But in Karachi this Saturday one Hindu Canadian-Indian woman successfully brought a packed auditorium of Muslims to forget their differences, sympathize with each other and take a moment to ponder that which has divided us for so long.
