Greetings to all.. and thanks to Asma for nice glimpse of Islamabad street life online after a long time! It was nice to go through some of the blogs here and at Lahore too… Not much of a blogger myself, but could not resist to comment…

For those youngsters who are working hard to get relief goods to the quake victims, HATS OFF TO YOU GUYS!… it is definitely a great feeling to see the same spirit we observed during the 1965 war ….as much as it was a huge disaster, it did bring the nation together. We are trying to do as much as possible from this side of the world (VA,US). Just to let the readers know… the outpouring generosity of our American friends and their friends was simply overwhelming. We found out that PIA had run out of storage space and they asked us to sechedule the deliveries…. This is besides the money that was sent and is still being sent…

Just an ending note… I wish people in Pakistan would have caught on the idea of buying tents instead of a goat or ‘hissa’ for Eid… just wondered if that happened there at all? We bought tents for $115 each which I believe is equivalent to a price of one goat or two hissas…is that right?


May Allah bless ya!
