The day the music died…
Oct 8 was one catastrophic day in the history of Pakistan. While the official death toll is about 80 k, people speculate about a hundred thousand casualties happened that day.
Living in Islamabad, it seemed a big thing but not that big a thing.
I still remember I came back from office early in the morning to sleep and then waking up at about 9 am ( I had a night duty that day ) due to the earthquake. Islamabad only suffered the collapse of the Margallah Towers. It wasn’t until sometime in the afternoon that it was partially revealed as of what a ruinous disaster has hit the country.
I lost a few close relatives myself.
Like they say – time doesn’t stand still.
I salute all those who helped the reconstruction, and who moved forth with a positive attitude helping Pakistan getting out of the hard times.
I salute you all…
