Daughter of the East!

I had bought my copy of 'Daughter of the East' many many years back.[ shit, am old enough to say things like now ::: ].However ,the hard bound thick book somehow always put me off.I always wanted to read it..but it sadly always was the book I was planning to read after my current read.

It was her assasination that made me quickly finish the book I was reading then and start with her autobiography.
Today while travelling for close to 10 hours in the traina nd then in the auto, I spent a lot of time with Ms Bhutto, and I cannot even begin to put in words how terribly impressed I am!!

She was an amazing woman, it is not easy to bear all that she has borne! and with so much dignity!
Without giving anything away, for the first time on this blog, I am actually going to ask all those of you even slightly interested in history and its many shades, to go and pick up a copy of the 'Daughter of the East!'

Am back in Bskul after a good few days at home. I am already not liking it :(

Buy buy and take care! My hands are so cold!! brrrrr

and oh yes, btw, Have a great 2008 !:)

Hi there :o)

I've heard about the book being an amazing insight on Benazir. I would definitely buy it now :o)

BTW, I've a small blog on Bollywood and I wrote an article on her in Dec,07 at the time of her assassination.

Not many people know that, she was offered a role in a Bollywood movie, way back in 1972!

Please have a look:

And yes, I loved your sense of humor (your nic is Raam Pyari!!)

Take care, mam :o)

I had brought her autobiography long time back and read it.Couple of months back my friend brought enlarged,new edition of 'Daughter of East'.I didnt read that new edition much but it was more of White wash of her image and of her Husband,who is nick named Mr Ten Percent.
