Yesterday we bought new bicycles for the kids as I think no childhood is complete without a bicycle. Who can forget the scary moments when one learns to ride a two wheeler sans the training wheels or the pride when you actually float down the lane without falling after you realize that your parent/sibling/friend has let go of you and you are going solo and then the shame when you wobble and fall on your side. These cycles made me nostalgic as I remembered my childhood when my brother and I used to cycle down the lanes of Bradford, racing through the public park like “CHiPs” and taking turns to haul the bike up the hill we loved on – aaahhhh those were the days.
I couldn’t resist penning down my thoughts after I read ‘PTI- No competition for MQM’. Well, PTI has become blasé about such flaying. The most ludicrous thing was that PTI was being compared with MQM; a party which launched a membership campaign though it turned out to be a farce, a party which is nurturing on the blood of the innocent, a party notorious for extortion, a party which knows nothing but is highly inclined towards bloodshed. Yes, PTI has no match with MQM.
