It was a time when the country was under a cloud of violence and communal discord; when words like terrorism and racism were becoming a major share of everyday discussion. Punjab was going through a terrible turmoil. A gesture of peace, brotherhood and a healing touch was most needed. Putting our life in danger, I accompanied my father on a 78 days peace march from Mumbai to Amritsar, covering a distance of over 2700 kms with a message ‘Give Peace a Chance’. This walkathon gave me unforgettable insights into the real India, which touched my heart deeply.
