Haridwar: An estimated five million people have thronged the Hindu holy city of Haridwar for a dip in the Ganga Thursday in a ritual bathing. Hindu mythology says four drops of amrit fell from the kumbh (pot) at the four places when Lord Vishnu’s vahan (carrier) Gardua was escaping with it to the heavens so that the demons could not get hold of the amrit (nectar). The four places where the drops fell are Allahabad, Nashik, Haridwar and Ujjain.

Mian Nawaz Sharif in China… Help him….
by Shahid Ali
Mian Nawaz Sharif is visiting China for medical checkup of his spouse. Before that he and his brother Mian Shahbaz Sharif went to Qatar to meet Emir of Qatar in a special plane believed to be sent by his Emir friend.
Does anybody know what gifts he took with him for his Qatari friend??? Cost ??? What would be the cost of 10 days boarding, lodging and medical checkup???
It will make our leader Main Nawaz Sharif more under debt… he is already under the burden of heavy loans as per his GOSHWARA’S …. He only retains some Rs. 5000 in his bank account; I don’t know how he will manage in China….. Oh God help him…..

Islamabad establishment is continuously denying the historical status of Sindhi language in Pakistan
By Shakeel Nizamani, Calgary, Alberta
Trudeau, the 15th Prime Minster of Canada, was a charismatic, bold and brilliant leader. He as a prime minister made it compulsory for bureaucrats to learn French not only in the Quebec province but in all of Canada. He said something like this “you have a choice not to learn French and we don’t have to hire you as a civil/military/govt servant.” While Sindhi language has not been given its historical status in Pakistan but at the same time it is continuously denied in its own homeland Sindh.
