ISLAMABAD (AP) - August 15th will mark the 60-year anniversary of the separation between India and Pakistan, and the traditional Partition Day Parade promises to be especially ebullient this year.

Despite long-standing animosity between the two independent nations and the recent kidnapping of TheSpoof.com writer Mohit Meinhaus by radical Pakistani satirists, some signs of friendship are starting to show.

A recent joint study group appears to have settled on a list of 20 products of bilateral trade interest to both sides. They include: cement, dried fruits, Basmati rice, tea, textiles, leather goods, various chemicals, carpets/rugs, gems/jewelry, cricket bats, fireplace pokers, bicycle spokes, windchimes, cobra anti-venom, hookahs and volleyballs.

The pending trade agreement could transmogrify the region.
