Benazir even has a huge estate in the UK, complete with a private airstrip, I hear.

Har soobay mein zameen ki toh baat hi kya hai!


There's another side to it though...Recently, when I was asked if I could translate a part of my blog into Punjabi for publication in a Punjabi magazine, I had to send in a note containing an apology and a request for getting that done from elsewhere. Now, I have always been mighty proud of my mother tongue, but this made me realise that the only language I could write with some confidence in, is English. I am sure that there are many others like me out there, in India as well as in Pakistan, who are more proficient in English than in their own mother tongues.

Perhaps we are all 'darbaans' of the 'firangis' in our own way!
