Long ago one of my collegue underwent a back surgery. He was our admin manager. Now He is healthy and does all his daily work without pain.
I have been trying to persuade my brother-in-law to undergo surgery. I tell him that surgery techniques have advanced in these days. My college underwent surgery. It took 6 months to recover him from the operation. Now I am told that it is less invasive.
YouTube has emerged as the popular video website. All the world’s popular entertainment, news and sports channels have launched their popular channels on this website.
I alway heavy use this website for watching talk shows because of regular power outages in my country, We can also download videos from youtube for off-line videos. In a poor country like Pakistan bandwidth rate is free costly. Specially for people who are using WIMAX devices. I also use a popular youtube downloader.
Norway’s child protective services have taken two kids from an Indian couple and placed them in foster care. Anurup and Sagarika Bhattacharya have been fighting for eight months to take their children back from the authorities. One of the kids is a three boy, and the other one is an one-year girl.
Authorities say they had to take the drastic measure because parents were not bringing their children in a proper manner. Parents say children were taken away from them because they were feeding the children with their hands. The children used to sleep with their parents.
There is something with the Norway’s child care system. In 2005 the UN criticized Noraway, they were talking t in public care. They have taken 12,500 children in their custody.
Last year when my brother-in-law, who is in the army, bought a set of rustic log furniture. I was really pleased with the quality of the furniture. It was giving a stunning look to his old army house built in the British Days.
His brother asked me if this kind of furniture is available in Canada. I told him that there is a company in USA that sells stunning pieces of bedroom and dinning sets.
It appears that Congress Party will not allow Mr. Salman Rushdie to land in India and attend the Jaipur Literature Festival. Congress are saying that they are doing this keep their Muslim voters from drifting away from them.
The matter has sensenalzied after the fatwa of Maulanas of Deoband. Maulanas have slammed the government for allowing the UK-based novelist of Indian origin to attend the festival.
I think stance taken by Maulanas of Deoband is wrong. They must respect the constitution of India and should not bully government to accept their demand. Islamic groups are threatening that his visit will create ‘law and order’ problem in India.
Muslims should understand that Indian government cannot stop him from comming to India. He holds a person of Indian origin (PIO) card. They live in a free society and try to become a real citizens of Indian democracy.
It is a wedding season in Karachi. My friends can get an idea is about happening what is in my family by viewing wedding galleries created by my two daughters. They are passionate photographers and love to capture memorable moments and share it with their family members living in USA and Canada.
When my wife and daughters return from a marriage event, they sit together and talk about brides dresses, engagement rings and jewelry pieces worn other women. I smile at their discussions. I often join in their discussions to tease them.
I wrote this post after views the pictures posted by my friend Soulat Pasha.
