  • Pakistani Diaspora is growing by every day, month, year and with it the twin angst of lost roots and heritage is engulfing their minds. Souls like you who care for their heritage and want to transfer your love for your land to their children are increasing every day. When I go back to Pakistan, despite all that is happening there, I feel proud of my city Multan. Its people, its trees, its land and everything associated with it. Language is the biggest difference or similarity when you go to a new place. If one speaks the language of that place, everything becomes easy. Without learning Urdu, definitely the next generation will be absorbed in the adopted country and the land of Pakistan would be as alien to them as any other foreign land.
