Go Figure?

The elections are over. The new government has been formed with some on the inside and a large part supporting the coalition from outside. Dr Manmohan Singh is our new prime minister. A very talented and accomplished economist, he is certainly deserving.

The interesting tidbit here is that he was born much before 1947, the year of the partition of India and the formation of Pakistan. The place that he was born, is now in Pakistan, and the place that Pakistani President General Musharraf was born, is now in India.

Leaders of two countries born across borders ... Interesting?
