    Technically, we all should have a month of vacations :P (said a student). With Christmas, and Jinnah day coming up too, AND Barri Eid too, lol it makes a good case to have month long holiday! LOL!

    I say group all vocations into one giant chunk after summer. That would be nice. A long extended 4months break counting summer holidays.

    Well by the diwali pictures printed in newspaper I get the idea that there are many Hindus in rawalpindi … and somehow I’ think i’ve read in some paper that 20-25 hindu families are residing in and around Rawalpindi !

    OK here’ soemthing I found

    There are about 40 Hindu families residing in Rawalpindi and 25 in Islamabad. On Diwali, most of them get-together to celebrate and offer prayers. Gifts are exchanged, business and personal accounts cleared, and ways of being a better person in the new year are planned,” Narayan said.
