Kishwar Enam

You dimpled smile is the cutest I have ever seen.
Your look of innocence makes you even more beautiful.

People give  gifts on different occasions . You look for occasions to give gifts. You make excuses to shower people with presents . 'This is for your birthday'…..'this is because you are in Karachi'….''this is because I was not satisfied with the gift I gave earlier''..and so on.

You were my pick for 'My khala' slot. I remember how I used to collect your pictures and how I cried at your rukhsati…!
We can be sure that noni would not get cross on little things. You can share secrets  with her knowing she would not pass it on.
She is a true professional but she makes it a point to spend  quality time with her children...and give them their due attention.
Noni..Have I ever told you that we love your smile..
or that we love the dahi baray you make?
or that we appreciate the little things you do to make people special? (like bringing donuts for nemo on every visit). Yes...we do appreciate all these things.

Instead of indulging in  heated arguments ..she prefers to ignore or be silent. She is soft spoken but also firm and strong in what she believes or says.

Though far apart ..we know that we can call anytime for free medical advice.
She is elegant, beautiful and a lovely khala. Thank you for showering us with your love and care.
If I could borrow one of your characteristics it would be your elegance.

Farheen Jamal

I remember an  ad of samsung in which a  guy  constantly  whispers ..""….…so  trying to be funny..i whispered in your ears '''samsung samsung…samsung"…from the deep sleep you wokeup in an instant and slapppppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.......ouch..:D
aah! pata  nahi kitnay thappar khaai hon gain..yeh to yaad bhi nahi ..aur agar yaad ho bhi to count bhi nahi kar saktay…!:D 
But all that has are no more the typical bossy sister.
Now it’s a different story. You are calm and cool. You can overcome little hurdles of life with the great control that you have over your emotions.

Farheen Jamal is like morning coffee which warms you up to deal with anything.
She has the  art of giving preference to mind over heart…taking decisions with a cool logical mind..instead of blunt and quick  replies . You know how to keep your mind cool with patience and calmness.  

When you started would take care of our small needs.
I remember when you bought a ring for me….and gave it to me for my birthday at midnight... I thought can it be I said..'chal bay" ..but it was real gift ..a lovely ring…!
Fara is flexible and brings changes in herself according to her surrounding….always positive and optimistic.
“Sister. She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney
I think you are the sister with whom I have shared most of my secrets. We would listen for hours to the University stories and gossips you used to tell as soon as you came back from the university.
I have enjoyed sneaking out to NED from my own university and sitting in your class;
The frequent safari trips that we shared;
You perfectly ironed clothes that I used to steal.
Your drive to cleanliness drives sana and mustafa crazy:D
Someone has rightly said:
"When you are messed up and stuck in a situation..there is nothing like a sister to pick you up off your feet and carry you to the next destination in life."
Whenever I am upset ..i know I can call fara to feel better and optimistic…ready to face the world again with all the energy .
You can always hear cluttering when you call Fara.She almost never wastes her time.She is always multi tasking. Washing dishes..while  talking on phone. Cleaning house while skyp-ing.

Fara..You care about little things and give everyone respect. Just before your wedding..when abbu wasn’t well….and ammi was busy taking care of took over the household responsibilities .It was the time when we should have given you utmost comfort as you were about to leave our house..but you took care of us….Thankyou for being a choti apa:)
You are the one who insist on eating together on a dining table…so the whole family is together at least once or twice a day.
You are the one who  think t.v to be a noise pollution..always turning it off for a better family time!
You are the one who taught us that 'ignoring is the best policy'
Your beaming  and no-pretend smile makes you glow (mashallah) .You have a ever present twinkle in your eyes mashallah(credit to farukh bhai?:D)
'People inspire you..or drain you'….you are the one who inspires..and turn the negative energy into positive.
If I could borrow one of your characteristics it would be your mind-over-matter attitude and if could borrow one more it would be your smile.
I love you Fara for all you are..and for being always there.
Thankyou God for making such a lovely person my sister.Today we will celebrate you being in our lives.Hugs!!

Farhan Ahmed

'Kharoos' is usually an alternative word for a boss. But I am lucky to have few of the finest supervisors in my career.
Farhan Ahmed  is  not a typical boss…mainly for the reason of his cool as cucumber attitude.
He does not interfere and criticize you for the way you carry out a task…He assigns and then lets you do it in your own way…guiding and correcting where ever needed . He has the character of not labeling others  work as his own(like a typical manager:D).He gives credit and praise to his workers where ever needed  .
He is a person who is always calm to the chaos.
"You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.."
Yes..FA is that kind of person who is always happy oblivious to his surroundings.
He has this wonderful way of always using humor  in his conversations. He can wrap complicated things in a small matchbox.
If I could borrow one of your characteristics , it would be your cool mindedness.
Thank you for being an excellent supervisor , guide and inspiration.
