So it took Steve McCurry & National geographic reporters a couple of months and some Pakistani contacts to find the famous green eyed Afgan Girl who Steve had photographed 17 years ago.

What i wonder is how come US secret service/army/airforce/CIA and other organizations have still not been able to find one Osma Bin Laden 😕

Lets see: Finding a girl should be more difficult considering the social norms that restrict girls to show their face to only their family. Osama am sure does not have that advantage.

Aparantly NatGeo used a Pakistani senior new editor and village elders to find this girl. U.S. and Pakistan are allies, (right?) so how come they did not get that advantage.

Irony is that the Senior News Editor was introduced in the programme as one of the few who have interviewed Mr. Laden himself…hmmm so thats a credential!

Nice to see atleast someone can find exactly what they were looking for.

Shopkeepers in India and US seem to have one thing in common. Most of them are unfortunate to have lost their courtesy and manners expected towards customers. I read an interesting piece today that reminded me of my experiences.

What has happened to the salesperson and retailers in the world today.

Agenda:Life sure is a coincidence but then think again and its all a big setup that God did.
Hi,
Sorry if the agenda word didn’t seem right. But thats how I am. Was always a planned ahead, estimate for the stars and track the expectation person.
Anyways what I really wanted to talk about is…… Hillary Clinton in the run for presidential elections!!

What a coincidence that I saw “Man of the Millennium” (movie) just when I started seeing news after landing in NY. So who would have thought 7 years back that Mrs Clinton would one day be standing on the podium saying words that his husband was saying. You think I am exaggerating then think again. Picture Mrs. Bush…you think 7 years later she would be doing the same thing. Nope….Its like finding a chicken in a noodle soup 😉 But the point I wanted to make was that sometimes what seems like a coincidence is actually a well planned phenomena. Now think this way, Hillary was destined to do this.
A lawyer
An experience in White House
A nation wide or in fact an international scandal where she emerged the hero for all women around the world and of course the media.
I would not say that her time has arrived since she still seems a little raw….actually soft. The smile she is passing is easily understandably fake….. She still needs to marinate! But best of luck Ms Clinton. With a little better color sense of your dresses(no tangy pinks please) and a more genuine smile who knows….
