    My dear jasmine,

    as many times as I recalled calling you, each time I forgot.

    Terrific book launching. Unfortunately, we had guests and I couldn’t even flip to check. But i read all the reports in the papers. Fantastic. Great. I will call tomorrow. My apologies for the delay.

    I have a family gathering tonight.

    Book was not displayed in the new books section at the front of Mr. Books, Super Market, Islamabad.
    When I asked for it, they said it was not available.
    When I insisted, they looked again and said they had two copies. Got them both.
    Presented one to the Information Service Academy, Islamabad, and reading the other.
    Liked the dedication. It’s been rightly said: My daughter is my daughter all of her life.
