A chili rain damped the weather but not the spirits. Everyone brought the delicious dishes and we had the taste of all. Lots of prizes were given away through the ruffle tickets. A TV set, DVD, Microwave Oven, Telephones and time clocks were among the many.
Erstwhile Regional Secretary Mr. Manzoor Shah, recently arrived from Pakistan, filled us with the ever-depressing news from the old county. Specially, news about the clouds of war hanging over Indo-Pak subcontinent.
