When the Sharif calls

Think of the wildest surprises and you would not be able to beat the one that I was just swept by.

Although I am not that much allergic to late night calls, still, it’s an unusual occurence when a friend calls me up after 12. And it left me wondering who the hell would be ringing me out of sleep this late at night.

The next second, I pick up the phone and say ‘Assalam-o-Alaikum!”.

Voice on the other side replies:

“Assalam o Alaikum! Mein aap ka apna Nawaz Sharif bol raha hoon. Jaisa keh aapko maloom hai keh maujooda hukoomat ……………, issi liye kal apnay keemti waqt mein say kuch lamhay nikaal kar Shair par mohar lagaye kyun kay ……………..”

Stunned at becoming the target of probably a chain late-night-mobile-call-up campaign, I could hardly beleive my ears. He actually sounded like Mr.Sharif and I would bet an A380 that it was him!

I hope I won’t be the only one to experience this when the sun rises tomorrow. Any experiences of this like? Anyone??

    In some western countries such recorded telephone messages from political leaders played to multiple phone numbers simultaneously is a common practice during elections, although political parties don’t dare do it at an inconvenient time for the fear of annoying voters. NS has caught up with the technology.

    Yes, got one of those as well! It is slightly disconcerting, but I guess all is fair during election days.

    Must say, daring to be different, PML (N) is already leading the way for progress :) (Never thought I’d hear myself say this though!)
