When I chose this title for my blog I thought I will be representing all Pakistani housewives, with some wonderful recipes and some useful tips. My blog in my thoughts had all the colors of Pakistan, its beauty, its fashions, its people, its poetry but I am yet to share all this with you. In coming days, I hope to show you a glimpse of my beloved country whose face has lost its shine, in the media and maybe in reality too. But this does not mean the people of Pakistan are less loving, less hospitable, less colorful now than what they used to be.
Let me show you a picture of a Pakistani household first. There is a grandfather (we call him dada jan) and a grandmother (dadi jan), and both these elders are not only respected and loved, but are the source of strength, stability and love for the whole family. Kids of the family have their dada jan, dadi jan, ammi (mom), abbu (dad) to guide, love and care but there are a whole lot of other people who make their lives complete. There are phupos (dad’s sisters), chachus (dad’s brothers), mamus (mom’s bros), khalas (mom’s sisters). Living together means sharing each others pleasures, compromising with each other, overcoming our personality differences. We manage some success in the above but all can’t be sweet!!! So our lives are a little spicy too…..
We will talk about all this and more….
