Pandemic Influenza, Swine flu (H1N1)

What is pandemic influenza A (H1N1)?

Pandemic influenza H1N1 is new flu strain first detected in April 2009. Because it is a new strain most people have no immunity to it and it can spread quickly. Most people are therefore at risk of becoming infected with the pandemic H1N1 flu virus. Like seasonal flu, this flu virus affects the airways. It can cause fever, headache, muscle aches and pains, fatigue, and cough and sometimes nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, trouble breathing, weakness and other serious problems. The conditions can last up to five to ten days, but the cough and fatigue can in some people take weeks to fully go away.

Who is at risk for complications from the H1N1 flu virus?

Pregnant women, persons with heart or lung disease including asthma, kidney disease, blood disorders such as anemia, severe obesity, long term aspirin therapy in children less than 18 years of age,  the persons with the conditions of choking, diabetes, cancer, HIV/AIDS, transplant recipients.

Years Will Come And Go, My Sindh Will Go On Forever And Forever

Poetry by Ahmed Makhdoom

Years will come and, years will go,

Decades will come and, decades will go,

Millenniums will come and, millenniums will go,

Mortals will come and, mortals will go,

My Sindhrree will go on forever and forever!

My motherland will glitter forever and forever!

Today, an old year has left us and a new year is born,

And, I pray to Great Lord, Beloved, Master of my soul;

But, wait! Me, a tiny drop; Thee, Vast Ocean Supreme!

Tiny I am, qualified I am not; Sinner I am, impure I feel;

My murshid is most qualified – my teacher, my guide;

Lord! Me, a wretched being, Bhittai is Thy friend indeed!
