CNN's Eye on India will feature CNN Connects: Dialogue for Peace - India & Pakistan

As part of the special Eye on India week, CNN will host a live panel discussion, CNN Connects: Dialogue for Peace – India and Pakistan, that will be telecast LIVE from Mumbai on Sunday, September 18, 20:30 hrs. CNN’s Jim Clancy will host the discussion with government officials, renowned citizens and political experts from both countries, with live studio audience participation. Special guests include noted personalities like Minister of Civil Aviation, India, Praful Patel; Minister of Commerce, Pakistan, Humayoon Akhtar Khan; Indian film personality, Shabana Azmi; former Pakistani cricket captain and currently Pakistani politician, Imran Khan; Chairman, Bombay Dyeing Group, Nusli Wadia; Chairman, Nishat Group, Pakistan, Mian Mansha and General Pervez Musharraf (via taped video), amongst many others.

Preceding the CNN Connects: Dialogue for Peace LIVE studio discussion, CNN International will telecast a special documentary, India and Pakistan: The Path to Peace, on Sunday, September 18, 2005 at 19:30 hrs. CNN’s Satinder Bindra in India and Hugh Riminton in Pakistan meet survivors of the violence that accompanied the Indo-Pak partition in 1947, movie stars, business leaders and ordinary people whose lives on both sides of the border have been affected by the animosity between the two countries who hope for a more secure future. Many of them blame vested interests among politicians and the armed forces of both countries for perpetuating the rivalry. CNN correspondents meet political figures who don't believe the peace process is 'irreversible' as Pakistan President, Musharraf and Indian Prime Minister, Singh described it earlier this year.

The documentary also features the story of a little Pakistani girl whose journey to India for a life-saving heart surgery captured the imagination of people in both countries and also includes a visit to the only open road-crossing between India and Pakistan at Wagah, where Indian and Pakistani soldiers face off every evening in a theatrical display of patriotism as the flags of both countries are lowered.

Eye on India is a special programming initiative that focuses on the vibrant country of India and its growing economy with an aim to provide the global viewer with a better understanding of the world’s biggest democracy - India.
