Trials and tribulations, they say, make the young grow up fast. This is certainly the case with young Bill who's beginning to make his own decisions and chalk out his own path, having grown up with adversity. Our mole reports that contrary to his Dad's advice, who, like any parent, wants to ensure Bill's safety and security above all else, the young man prefers to live in his namesake House in Karachi rather than at the Presidency in Isloo. They say he's taken over his later mother's room and lives there amidst all her paraphernalia. Bill also had his own opinion about his launch - they say many a Party stalwart suggested that he be launched at Big Ben' s 5th barsi in Nau Dero but Bill refused. We hear he wants to launch his political career at a time of his own choosing, preferring to distance himself from the Party's peformance in the current term.
Detente of D Chowk
Friar TuQ, he who assailed Isloo with his "4 million" supporters a few weeks ago, is on track to return to his comfy berth in Toronto. And who can blame him, for it is said that his home-cum-headquarters is a sprawling place, worth millions of Canadian greenbacks, large enough to accommodate him, his extended family and some of his lieutenants. We've also heard that two of his closest aides helped negotiate the Detente of D Chowk with a back channel to the government. These aides, it is preposterously and incredibly alleged, helped themselves to Rs 2 crore each in return for pushing the Detente, and persuading Friar Tuq.
Pakistan's premier rights activist and lawyer celebrated her birthday recently. On the day, she got a phone call from a family friend of many years, Chory Shuj of Guj who invited her to tea. When she got there, she saw that there was a cake and preparations were afoot for a celebration. Several Party workers were singing happy birthday and the rights lady said, "how kind of you Chory Sahab! You shouldn't have". Chory Sahab smiled and said, "thanks so much for coming to my birthday party!" It was his birthday too, and he had invited the lady to his party, not knowing that it was her big date as well!
