Google has recently posted an ad on YouTube titled "Reunion" which has touched millions of hearts already. The video has already received more than 725,821 views.
The search engine giant's marketing ad campaign features an emotional touch and comes as a tear jerking moment of reunion between two friends who have been separated in the 1947 India-Pakistan partition.
The ad begins in India where an old man, Mr. Mehra, reminisces to his grand daughter Suman about his childhood friend Yousuf, the one he got separated from during the partition period.

Suman understands her grand father's wishes and uses a few key words from the grandfather's story. She connects the dots with the help of Google search. Suman then speaks to Yusuf and invites him to India. They use Google to look for details like weather in Delhi and flight arrival timings.
Yusuf surprises his friend by giving him a surprise visit on his birthday after six decades. The old friends are united giving a tear-jerking blow to most of Indians and Pakistanis.
"Partitions divide countries, friendships find a way," comes as a caption below the three-and-a-half minute commercial.
The video also makes us realize, that despite the disagreements between the governments of India and Pakistan in certain aspects there is always some personal connections running deeply between them.
