At last after a long long time, Pakistani cricket team is in the news for positive reasons. A test match played here in Karachi after an eighteen month gap and icing on the cake is that Younis khan made a triple century.
I was so happy yesterday and 400 seems to me the reality but just when i got up today , my sis gave the news that he got out on 313.So near yet so far.

Of late I have posted a lot of stuff in Urdu here .but now I realized that Urdu and English can’t go side by side in one blog or may be I don’t have capability actually to do it. So I have decided to make a new blog for Urdu stuff. I have read a lot of Urdu stuff last year and I have a plan this year to read more. I always feel pity on myself because neither I know the English rightly nor Urdu. But this is the case with some other people also.
I remember I was watching a TV program in which they were interviewing Japanese who was well versed in Urdu. They were also taking live phone calls .Somebody called and wanted to talk to Japanese.
Caller : Hello
Japanese : Asalam-o -Alaikum
Caller : walaikum Asalam
Japanese : ap ka ism sharif ?
Caller : ji !! kiya kaha ap ne ?
The interviewer then interrupted and told the caller that the guest was asking his name. Here is the link of my new Urdu blog آوازِانا

    Thanks for dropping by my blog anaa!

    Agreed about cricket being back in the news for the right reasons this time. I was kinda ticked off at the fact that we're not willing to make better pitches at home even after being deprived of cricket for so long. That was exactly the point made in the match report at cricinfo, and I agree with them wholeheartedly.

    LOLz at your anecdote. Urdu really is one of the sweetest languages around. I have a new found respect for it having been out of the country for a while.

    Thanx of the comment Razz.
    All pakistani fans are quite irritated on these dead pitches.
    Indeed,Urdu is one of the sweetest language of the world.
    urdu hai jis ka nam sab jante hai dagh
    sarey jahan mein dhoom hamaree zuban ki hai
