Last night was simply crazy. It reminded me of the old days when we used to be glued to the TV screens because of the good ol' cricket match. But with time as our team's performance graph slummed & the frequent changes made in the team made most of us just drop out from the game....

However, last night the glory had returned after 17 years. Not a single shot was missed. I had the added responsibility of a friend who had to go for a dinner at the Golf club last night. She was being given updates after 2min. (Thank God the sms package still worked).

This was a victory we all were so desperate for & it was celebrated to the perfection. The people had forgotten about the miseries that engulf our lives in one way or the other. There was no hatred, no ethnic rivalry even the IDPs were celebrating. I just hope that as the international media covers the insanity that goes around us; it covers our celebration in the same manner so that the world knows that we are capable of celebrations as well.

As for our team WAY TO GO, the nation is proud of you. It was a perfect gift(as Younas Khan said that the cup is a gift to the nation from the team) in such times. AND yes who can ignore BOOM BOOM AFRIDI.......

Before going to bed I was tempted to complete the chapter of "The Rainmaker" by John Grisham. As my mp4 was laying with the book I tuned in to the Radio & almost every station was playing our patriotic numbers:

Dil Dil Pakistan

Jazba Junoon

Hum han Pakistani etc.
