#GeetaReturnsHome trended right through the day. The happy development signaled soothing of hostile nerves between two borders at each other’s throat. The office bearers of Édhi Foundation that took care of Geeta during her stay in Pakistan rightly took centre-stage with both Prime Minister and Foreign minister lauding its efforts. But the bonhomie was short lived given that Pakistan government spokesperson used the Geeta return episode to demand release of 400 prisoners allegedly held captive in India. The foreign affairs minister steered clear of any controversy during her press conference to stay focused on Geeta’s return. Now comes the sad development that Edhi Foundation has refused the aid offered by Indian Prime Minister. Modi had tweeted saying “What Edhi had done was priceless to be measured…”. It is indeed good news that Geeta is home but a major thaw in relationship is quite unlikely.
