It can be easy to forget how miraculous the Internet really is, especially with a steady stream of news about spying, privacy violations and the like. But the video above is here to remind us: the web can bring people together.
The video is an ad from Google — yes, I know Google has pretty much abandoned its "don't be evil" mantra at this point — and is genuinely heartwarming. It tells the story of two old men in India and Pakistan who years ago were childhood friends. The men used to play together as boys but were separated by the Partition and drifted apart.
