Karnataka woos Pakistanis

In a new first for any Indian state, Karnataka Tourism has issued an advertisement in the Pakistani newspaper, the Dawn, wooing Pakistanis to visit India. Featuring cricketing superstar Rahul Dravid, who hails from Bangalore and gave an impressive performance on the recently concluded cricket tour, the ad copy reads "Rahul invites you home...", "Bangalore...Rahul's home, India's garden city, Asia's technology hub...and the city that became friend and healer to little Noor Fatima...". Noor Fatima was the Pakistani girl with a congenital heart disorder who was given a new lease of life by doctors at the city's Narayana Hrudayalaya.
