Tour de` hostel

Saturday, February 17th, 2007

Its 7:00 in the morning. The sun is sodsc00549.JPG wonderful that anyone can predict of having a great day. Everyone in hostel is preparing to run off. Where? Destination is unknown. We were just told by hostel representatives to be ready for an enlightened and extended drive.

Just after a quick breakfast and having loaded with ourdsc00436.JPG drinks and Korma for lunch we finally departed. It was almost shocking for few of us to ride a coaster without a cassette player. Do you believe that? In this severe circumstance the cell phones were of great help and best utilized.

Time there and left for `hala`.We reached `bhit shah` in three hours with only one tea break at hand. This is a tomb of great and most famous Sindhi poet and Sufi Shah Abduldsc00470.JPG Latif Bhitai. We spent some another historical and Spiritual town of Sindh. This town is also famous through the subcontinent in Art, Pottery, wood works, Cloth printing, Woven cloth in various beautiful designs. We did some shopping and admired the market.

It was followed by boating, still raining.

The Enduring Argument

TIME,LETTER TO EDITOR

Bravo for your insightful “God Vs. Science” debate between Richard Dawkins and Francis Collins [Jan. 15]. The discussion is not only important to Christians but to humans of other faiths as well. How can you compare God with science, which is merely a way of analyzing material things? Darwin’s theory of evolution doesn’t contradict the existence of a Supreme Being, since time and space have no relevance to God—our billion years could be a single moment to him. I disagree with Dawkins’ assertion that science doesn’t deal with metaphysics. Science is not in competition with God but is one way to approach him. That is apparently the experience of Collins, whose faith rests on reason. We require both religion and science to reach beyond ourselves.

Israel’s Outrageous bombing at Labnan

beirut.jpgI have simply lost my words to express the pain and grief over the killings of tens and thousands of innocent children and unfortunate citizens of Labnan. This is not the first time we have witnesses this kind of barbaric attacks but their history is full of such an outstanding show of courage. This time they won’t be needed any fake evidence like `weapons of mass destruction` and just have started a war by merely kidnapping of their two beloved soldiers.
