  1. I am a fan of Strings’ music and have noted that their lyrics are often not in Urdu, but in a dialect spoken in parts of the states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, in India. I wonder if the Maqsoods have their roots there (since the other member of the band i.e. Faisal Kapadia is not likely to).

    It is good to know that Karachi is the cosmopolitan city that it is.

  2. I am a big Anwar Maqsood fan! May God bless him with a long and healthy life Ameen! 🙂

  3. What a beautiful story! I wonder if they ever would consider having a blog to encourage more to join their group, or allow others from around the world to participate in a thoughtful dialog.

  4. Meghan, you are right. In this global age, such initiaitves need involve the internet. I will ask the organizers to consider this.
    thanks for visiting and leaving the comments

  5. I appreciate the idea of setting up Maskeen gali in Karachi and forsee such discussion forums to bring about positive social change, essentially required. I suggest opening of such discussion forum in Lahore and Islamabad as well, which i think have potential persons to make meaningful contribution towards society.

  6. Keats:

    Everytime I touch base with you I am reminded of the following verses of Keats

    ‘Ay, where are the songs of spring

    Where are they?

    Think not of them

    Thou hast thy music too’

    “Ode to Autumn”
