    @ Wasiq.

    sir, subhaan allah….i had never seen the spiritual side of eating nuli nahari.

    now will go there every jumairaat…will light some candles and spread some rose petals all the way around….

    by teh way…waheed naharii per qaqal party kub ati hai…rohaniyaat aur barh jati hai jub qawali pe sar dhuntay hain.
