شعیب ہاشمی صاحب چلے کئے۔ وہ یقیناً بہت کچھ تھے مگر ہمارے لئے سب سے بڑھ کر ایک بہت شستہ انسان تھے جن کے دم سے ہمارا بچپن اور جوانی سچ گپ، اکڑ بکڑ، ٹال مٹول جیسے خوبصورت ٹکڑوں میں بٹ کر ہمیں مسکراہٹوں سے آشنا رکھتا گیا۔ زندگی خوبصورت رہتی ہے ایسے لوگوں سے اور ان سے جُڑی یادوں سے۔ pic.twitter.com/uXXt0lDG9E
