Coach Qazi had put together the perfect Pakistani Cricket team. The
he was missing was a good bowler. He had scouted all the colleges,
and even the high schools, but he couldn't find a right bowler who
could ensure a World Cup win.
Then one night, while watching CNN, he saw a war-zone scene in Germany.
one corner of the background, he spotted a young German soldier with a

moment, there are
gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two
brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and this week
your sister was raped in broad daylight."
The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says
"...I'll never forgive you for making us move to Karachi!
