Javed Khaloo


Although you speak rarely, you are one of the best host in the world. You along with khala make your guest feel like a five-star-hotel -guest.
When I sometimes visited your home from the university , you made it sure to make the trip most comfortable.  Once when you dropped me to the university , you gave me Rs.100 for the canteen…'khaloo..yeh to bohat ziada hai canteen pe khanay k liay.'…..you said.: 'apni doston ko bhi khila dijiay ga aaj'..so we had a party that day…:)
You take full responsibility of your guests. Once, you had to pick me up from my farewell party. Although I came downstairs at time, I somehow was not able to see your car. After half an hour I called khala.She told me that he has been waiting there for more than half an hour. I then searched your car outside and was able to find you.  You didn’t come inside as you thought it to be an intrusion in a friends gathering.
You didn’t complain or scold me  at all.
You have a kind heart  and you are willing to help everyone in need .

Although I do accept the fact we do fear you sometimes .But for the extra care  you show..we love you much more than we fear you.

Tania Hasan


As Stephen Covey said :"Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”
People usually do not listen. Listening is an art. Throughout my life , I have come across only three or four good listeners . You are one of them. You do  not jump in the mid of a sentence . You actually listen!
So you should be proud of being one of those  rare species who are good listeners.
It is not that you only have the skills of  listening ,you also know  the art of being heard. You can convey your thoughts in an impressive manner.
Moreover, You can talk for a long long time without any comma or full stop…:)
You are a shopaholic and always  know the right place to go . So everyone relieves themselves of the shopping headaches and assign the tasks to you. 
There are two sides to every story. For Tania baji ..one side would be the optimistic one and the other funny.
Your optimism is contagious  which helps us to look towards the possibilities. You can crack jokes at an time…and in any situation…which relieves us from the seriousness of the situation. I also love your loud uncontrollable laugh.

You have the get-up-and-go confidence to take up anything thrown up your way.
You have full control over your emotions .I have hardly seen  your  mood fluctuations.
For our family you are a shield for facing the nonsense..  a tool for taking permissions…
And a rescue machine for making excuses for things we do not like to indulge in.

For all our questions , the answer is Tania baji..!

Huda Ahmed

"Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person"-Mother Teresa

Here is this lady in our family with an Oscar-winning smiling…whom we can call a true patriot..! Well every one claims to be one…but the special thing about her is that her deeds reflect the patriotism.

"shikwa e zulmat e shab se to kahin behter tha,
   Apne hissay ki koi shama jalaate jaate"

She does not wait for a miracle to happen.She makes it happen.She spreads light in the dark..she spreads the light of education to the unfortunate ones.
She does not indulge in the drawing room talks of a better country..she works for it.
She engages her heart , mind and abilities to build a better Pakistan.
Huda…it is because of youngsters like you..that Pakistan seems livable !  Pakistan needs you and we are proud to have you in our family.

DK (Rahat Alam)


DK..! You are a gem of a person.
You always put you own issues at side and rush to  ease the worries of others.
Even when you are sad ..you spread happiness and love.

You are one of the very few good listeners I have come across. You look right in the person's eye while listening and give your full attention! You do not interrupt and listen silently until the other person finishes speaking.

When it is not possible for you to attend a function or event ..you make sure that you make your presence felt..and make the person feel  special. You do that by calling frequently, giving suggestions and ideas and reminding constantly that you do care.

I bet you are one of the most amazing moms.

You know what we are thinking…you can dig that right from our hearts and minds...you know when our 'no' means 'yes' and when our  'yes' means 'no'
You have a heartwarming smile…which can melt any heart. You have the talent to lift people up even when you are down.

God chooses the family for us..and I am grateful that He chose you for us..:)
