Your Blogger, having to earn his livelihood, has to depart for foreign shores for a couple of weeks.
Not being on the spot in Pakistan, it will be hard for me to write with any degree of sincerity - so I’ll be giving the Blog a miss for a while.
In the meantime I wish to thank all my regular readers, and there are many of you or so my Statcounter figures tell me.
Confession time: My favourite readers happen to be those who leave their comments behind.
There is no monetary recompense for most bloggers, the only pleasure we get is from being able to provide people with an alternate view – right, wrong, stupid or whatever that may be.
Feedback, criticism and comments of any kind then become an indirect sign of acknowledgment to the blogger for the time he/she spent researching and hammering at the keyboard.
In other words, yes, it stokes our miserable little egos!
Until my return, I wish you all well and pray that God bless our impoverished and misgoverned country.
