There is an article published in Hindu dated 21-08-2017 in the Editorial page with the above mentioned heading. After narrating about the daily show of hate and patriotism by both the Indian and Pakistani soldiers, which has become a show with thousands of visitors on both the sides cheering and encouraging, the authors have asked a very relevant question : ‘Is it necessary to continue this patriot games?’. They continue: ‘Seventy years may not be a long time in the lives of two post-colonial nations, but the 70th anniversary of freedom is a good time to start accepting each other’s existence as sovereign independent entities. India needs to accept Pakistan’s tryst with destiny and what it does with it, and vice-versa.’

The opinion is worth discussion by the people and governments of both he countries.
