An excerpt from " The path of Khan " published in The observer ,touched my heart,........... tears rolled down on my cheeks after reading this particular passage ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, So I decided to write it here...........

"It was watching his mother die an awful death of cancer, unable to get treatment or even pain relief in Pakistan, that drove him to his proudest achievement, a $25m cancer hospital named in her honour in Lahore. He raised the money through campaigns and donation.
He started with Pakistan's richest men , many of whom had gone to his school, but quickly realised that generosity had nothing to do with wealth. So he went to the public: he enlisted the help of a small army of children - even though to start with he was terrified to stand up in front of a school assembly. 'In the end,' he says , 'I needed $4m in six weeks. I got an open jeep, put a big sack for money on the back and toured from north to south asking for help. I started at seven in the morning and carried on till midnight. In those six weeks I changed. I realised the generosity of tea boys, taxi drivers, the poorest people bringing 10 rupee notes - and also their faith. I was saying,"Don't worry: save your money". And they said, "We are not doing it for you, we are doing it for our God"."

what should I write abt this is 6 September,,,

Day of a victory,,,Day of Destiny,,,Day of sacrifice...

This very day always bring loads of sentiments,,,but with pleasure,,

There is some sadness always there exclusively for me,,,

Sadness of being not one of them,,,,, but

I always try to console myself by saying that " I tried" and that's the thing which matter...

Some past days I came to realize,,,that Flying was not a suitable job for me, but
the fact was i really wanted to do that, but what Allah knows we don' that is the full stop of everyone's life.

On this day ,I also would like to write on my blog
one of my favorite quotation ..

" If I don't return, tell them that I sacrificed my today for their tomorrow"

says an air force official while taking off the plane ...................

Love this najam sheraz

In fizaoon se agey

asmano se agey

kehkashaoon se agey

hum ko jana hai kaheen

neelgon aasman

surma,een badliyan

bazoon main bharee

shoq ki bijliyan

in fizaoon mein yeh kaisa ehsaas

mai terey pas hoon tu merey pas
