Zubin Mehta, 2007 laureate, builds bridges in conflict areas with music. 

"... my ambition to do something to get Muslims and Hindus to sit together in my country and listen to some music.
 ... we still speak the same language — music."

In Tel Aviv, the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music trains Israeli musicians, while his ‘Mifneh’ programme caters to 250 young Arabs in the West Bank that he often visits. “With my Indian passport, I have no problem. The Indian ambassador in Ramallah sends his car.” Mehta’s dream is to find an Israeli-Arab to play in the IPO. “May be,” he muses, “music will help us come together.”
