You go girl. My eyes are moist as I see these pictures. All those who criticize her, should understand what a powerful role model she is for all the teenage girls in Pakistan. They look up and see one of them getting a Nobel Prize. Imagine what it does to their ambitions, hopes and aspirations.

Such a proud moment for Pakistan as a Hindu man and a Muslim girl come together and in their togetherness share peace let this be a lesson to all that Hindus and Muslims can come together and share peace and love instead of spreading hate and war and the world will truly applaud us in our lovely peaceful blissfull magnificence.

Not many knew that in India this event was way too downplayed. Almost no coverage, no main articles, no interviews. What a shame. The reason is simple. Kailash Satyarthi work involve saving lower caste DALIT kids.

Great moment to cherish for our two countries. Kailash Satyarthi has already done a lot for exploited and ignored children and Malala is on her way in the area of girls' education. Keep up the good work and congratulations to both Nobel winners.

Apart from their contribution to education & human rights Malala & Kailash ji have achieved for their countries that our great leaders have failed to achieve in 60 years. They are the hope for our future. God bless Malala and God bless Kailash ji .
