The show SurKshetra has been pretty clear about its intentions since its very inception. That it is a musical battle between India and Pakistan. Right now too, 3 finalists each from both the countries are fighting it out to win the show.
But this is not the first instance of musical rivalry between the two nations. Both the countries have produced musical talent good enough to outshine the others. If India can boast of Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi, Pakistan has Abida Parveen and Ghulam Ali. And in this battle for supremacy, you get to decide who is India and Pakisan's greatest music icon.
