I am thinking
It’s getting so hot here wonder how those IDPs will be putting up in tents? Given the fact that they are from the cold areas.
I am sort of running away from the reality since it bites. We are taking good care of our guests but they are so considerate that they don’t allow us to turn on A/C for them. They think our electricity bill will shoot up. Today the auntie was asking me if there was any news of ceasefire, I told her unfortunately ceasefire isn’t in the offing.
She called up her husband in the morning who told her that last night they couldn’t sleep because of the heavy shelling that continued all night.
I had never imagined that those areas would become a war zone one day. This region was always peaceful and there were a number of private English medium educational institutes in Swat and people would send their children for better education over there – more or less like Murree convent.
When I see this situation I think what if in a year or two Peshawar also become a war zone. Because militancy is something that can’t be crushed in a month. It takes years to wipe out the miscreants and such elements.
Some people say that is the genocide of Pukhtoons. Is it? Or this is just another political statement?
Our guests await their return to homes I wish the war ends soon and they get back to their homes and inhabit the deserted villages and towns once again.
