    @ Mohammad : Those who live wisely, are indeed wise !!! Forefathers (and mothers too!) foretold of the abundant riches gone to waste in the land of chiefs/sheiks…

    Those who spend unwisely, are dooming their future generations of the choice (not that ‘ they’ would have made the wiser of the choices!!!) of spending on life’s bare necessities (incld camels) and luxuries.

    Finally, long live the Hens : FOR THE CHICKEN WILL ONE DAY COME HOME TO ROOST ( For guidance look at the present Taliban in Pak) !!!

    Keep Smiling friends…
