Yes, I have been away…, I was gone to Lahore, to attend 6th National Thalassemia Conference & Workshops from 17th to 19th..
It was a great experience, my first ever out of city conference 🙂 enjoyed every bit of it… My aim was to make people recognize www.thalassemia.com.pk nationally as it is recognize internationally, and I almost succeed in it 🙂
Made new people, many great doctors, society people, made new contacts…, new friends.
Though conference ended on 19th but I extended my stay till 20th night, so that I can roam in Lahore for a day.
I went to Race Course Park, Capri Restaurant at Liberty for halwa pori *recommendation, enjoyed.. do try yourself too*, Fortress Stadium, Been to M.M Alam road, tried few restaurants there.. enjoyed them too! 🙂
A friend from another hospital came to attend conference but fell ill and was admitted in hospital, that was quiet depressing for everyone… But I was glad to see the care and love by fellow thalassemia friends who were taking care of him till his parents come to Lahore, two of the friends even extend their stay to stay with him 🙂 *sweet, I liked it*
I have posted photos, video & notes on www.tfpak.wordpress.com , do check them if you want to know what happened at conference :)!
Few of the photos apart from conference:
and here comes my 1st birthday without you… I know I have to get used to it.. you wanted to gift something special this birthday.. but I never could get to know.. I hope you must be enjoying the luxuries of Jannat *ameen*
کتنی باتیں بھولیں؟ کتنی یاد رکھے؟ کیا کریں؟ کیا نہیں؟
کونسی چاند رات؟ کونسی عید؟ کونسا تہوار؟۔۔۔ لگتا ہے جیسے دل ہی مر گیا ہو۔۔
رات لیٹو تو وہ منظر آنکھوں کے سامنے سے ہٹتے نہیں۔۔، کچھ بھی بھلایا نہیں جاسکتا۔۔
ماں کو تسلی دیتے ہوئے کوشش ہوتی ہے میں نہ روؤں۔۔ پر رات ہوتے ہی۔۔ اکیلے میں خوب چیخ چیخ کر رونے کا دل کرتا ہے۔۔
پر پھر ۔۔ نہیں رو سکتی۔۔
دعا کریں مجھے سکون اور صبر آئے۔۔
یاد ماضی عذاب ہے یا رب، چھین لے مجھ سے حافظہ میرا۔۔۔
