My good old friend SJ who just came back from Umrah, was visiting me today and was telling me what happened when she was selecting a gift for me there The conversation between SJ and her mother went something like this:
SJ: I need to buy a gift for Fari. What shall I buy?
SJ’s Mum: How about getting some cosmetics for her?
SJ: No..she’s not much fond of cosmetics.
SJ’s Mum: Ok, get some jewelery for her.
SJ: Jewelery..i don’t know if she’d like it,leave other things aside I don’t even see her wearing earrings often.
SJ’s Mum: Then get some clothes for her.
SJ: Hmmm…..but size….
SJ’s Mum(irritated): What else do u want to buy for her..a Computer?
ROFL ……..computer(MacBook Air to be precise) would have been a perfect gift
I never knew buying a gift for moi is sooo difficult and this conversation really made me laugh SJ finally got clothes for me…but size really is an issue, when I wear them, it looks as if I’m wearing thawb . But neway..who cares about size and appearance…feelings matter the most to me..even SJ’s prayers would have been enough

Hamad(my 6 year old li’l friend): Aunty, I’m going to ur place today with u
Aunty(i.e. moi): Theek hai (I said so since he lives in the same apartments where I live)
Hamad: I’m going to see your bedroom as well
Hamad: Aunty aap k paas koi beta ya beti hai?
Aunty: Oops….he he he….NO
The only purpose of this cute little fella behind visiting my place was to get a new friend and he had assumed that since I’m an AUNTY so I probably have kids whom he would play with….Lolzz But as soon as he heard me saying No…he canceled his plan to come to my home…poor baby
Father: I want you to marry a girl of my choice
Son: "I will choose my own bride!"
Father: "But the girl is Bill Gate’s daughter."
Son: "Well, in that case…ok"
Next Father approaches Bill Gates.
Father: "I have a husband for your daughter."
Bill Gates: "But my daughter is too young to marry!"
Father: "But this young man is a vice-president of the World Bank.
Bill Gates: "Ah, in that case…ok"
Finally Father goes to see the president of the World Bank.
Final Step III
Father: "I have a young man to be recommended as a vice-president."
President: "But I already have more vice- presidents than I need!"
Father: "But this young man is Bill Gate’s son-in-law."
President: "Ah, in that case…ok"

After digging to a depth of 100 meters last year, Russian scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 1000 years, and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network one thousand years ago.
So, not to be outdone, in the weeks that followed, American scientists dug 200 meters and the headlines in the US papers read: "US scientists have found traces of 2000 year old optical fibers, and have concluded that their ancestors already had advanced high-tech digital telephone 1000 years earlier than the Russians.
One week later, Pakistani daily newspapers reported the following: "After digging as deep as 500 meters, Pakistani scientists have found absolutely nothing". They have concluded that 5000 years ago, their ancestors were already using Bluetooth and Wireless technology.
