WeCite’s Return

After a gap of over 2 weeks, we are back to our random scribblings again. The reason for the suspended services at WeCite Blog was actually a viral infection called Infectious mononucleosis that I was suffering from and was hospitalized for the past week and a half. Do read about it in the link above because it seems to be happening to a lot of people across Pakistan. Have a look at its symptoms to ensure that if you are (God forbid) going through them, you should get a blood test done ASAP and start medication. This can get REALLY nasty I tell ya!

Well anyways, the news is that I’m back and so is Selina (who decided this was an ideal time to take a break herself and work on her PSFD project).

On my way back home yesterday from the hospital, I heard the unfortunate news of the M2 Pile up involving 30 vehicles and which accounted for the loss of 6 precious lives. Such a tragedy…! May their souls rest in peace and may all who were injured (reported to be oer 50) have a speedy recovery (Amen).  

Across the border tragedy struck as well as India’s tourist city of Jaipur witnessed the death of over 80 with approx 150 injured in 7 multiple bombings. Investigations are still underway and it is thought that bomb-laden bicylces had been detonated for this purpose. However, it is yet to be determined whether any suicide bombers were involved in this horrific act or not. Nevertheless, our prayers go out to the dearly departed and all the families affected. Terrorism, no matter in what form or manner it takes place is a plague on the society and those who use it to their advantage to spread anarchy and chaos belong to no religion or country whatsoever.

Over at our circus of politics and its politicians, not much has changed. Why am I not surprised. Nawaz is still trying his best to get the judges restored as that is the major whim on which his party got their votes. Zardari and his PPP are in no hurry to make the restoration effective. Rightly so. Zardari recently got his cases excused from the courts and the books. The last thing he needs is for old books to be opened up by the very judges he restores. He’ll take his chances with the back lash of the judges against PPP but let’s not forget that PPP is not as weak as Musharraf’s regime. They have weathered many a storms before and will not be easily stirred or pushed around. As a sign of their whining and their oh so passionate loyalty to the lawyers’ cause, PML-N ministers put up their resignation with the Prime Minister recently after talks between PML-N and PPP met a disappointing deadlock in London. Nawaz Sharif and co already seem to be stepping away from the so called coalition government while citing that the judges issue can not be put in the back drop.  

*sigh* and who said this was not expected! *chuckles*

Over to our favorite sporting event, at IPL, Shoaib Akhtar mades his (flashy?) debut for the Kolkata Knight Riders. Brewing up a storm of his own, the controversial Rawalpindi Express was the ‘man of the match’ for guiding Shahrukh Khan’s team to a 23-run victory while they defended a modest total of 133 againt the Delhi Daredevils. Shoaib got a wicket each in his first three overs and ended with a brilliant figure of 3-0-11-4. Shahrukh Khan must be over the moon as he had been pulling all strings to get Shoaib involved in the IPL as soon as possible. With him around and starting off at such an explosive pace, one can expect the competion to only get hotter now!
