6th September, 1030 at night. Just had dinner. Too tired to pick up the dishes, I’m switching through channels. There’s Opera show on 1 channel, a romantic movie on another. Quickly browsing through, I stop on PTV to take a glimpse on a tribute program for heroes of ’65 war & 8th october earthquake, followed by back to back songs by Noor Jehan & Mehdi Hasan. Suddenly I miss Pakistan & the people back home like never before, & have to take a glass of water to swallow emotions. Before I realize, its 12 & I just have to hit the bed. PTV looks like on eid transmission. O yes, I’m a Pakistani, always & forever, & damn proud of it!

    @Farrukh Ahmed. How come you are a metro blogger for Karachi. I thought you had to live there to be considered.

    @Da-Man: Well, the metroblogging rules include the addition of authors incase they are visiting any of the cities on-board. I travel to Karachi almost every month!
    Otherwise, I live in Dubai and manage the dubai metblog here.

    @Faisal Hussain Siddiqui: If you’re the Faisal I think you are, its great to see that you’re following your hometown on the blogs!! Give my regards to your bro and friends!

    @Darthvader: Dude, you just gave me an inspiration to post an important point here on KMB. FYI, I posted this entry on my Personal Blog first! Just wanted to share the feeling……
    Guess you can’t really appreciate what Pakistan is till you become an expat!!
