And in news other than myself, a member of my culture-concern e-group Mr. Veerji Kohli just sent us this:

"Contractors from Karachi started digging precious granite stones afrom the base of Ancient Historical Temple of Durga Mata. This old Mander is situated on the top of the hill near Village Choryo Taluka Nagarparkar District Tharparkar Sindh. Thousand of Yatrees are gathered here every year. This beautiful temple is in the target of mafia who started digging stones from the base of this hill. Sindh Government issued lease to Contractor Abdullah Qureshi and he brought heavy machinery for exploration and digging. Heavy Exploring material is fixed and precious stones are taken away."

What a constant delight this country is to live in. Haina?
