Delhi: As goes the old saying that arts knows no boundaries, it is now seems to be reciprocated between India and Pakistan. Cutting aside the rift and tensions between the arch-rivals, new kinds of exchanges seem to have started between the nations. Both the nations are rich in their cultural backgrounds.

The first 'Lifestyle Pakistan' exhibit opened here on Thursday with over 100 Pakistani top brands and designers in various categories like fashion textiles, jewellery, designer furniture and leather goods showcasing high-end items.
The exhibition was inaugurated by Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma and Pakistan Commerce Secretary Zafar Mahmood, who arrived here today alongwith 650 Pakistani businessmen.
The exhibition is one of the steps taken by both India and Pakistan to enhance bilateral commerce and open new channels for shipment of goods.
Bilateral trade between the two countries is USD 2.8 billion, although the informal trade, mainly via countries like Dubai and Singapore, is estimated to be USD 10 billion.
"Informal trade is many times more than the formal (one) between India and Pakistan. We have to ensure that the gap between formal and informal trade disappears," Sharma said while inaugurating the four-day exhibition.
This is the first collaborative exhibition of Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) and India Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO).
"Lot of movement has happened in the last one year, the (trade) normalisation is going very fast," Mahmood said.
