Break day 13 of district (Kotli) wide tour

Who knows when and where one's final destination will be but being in your homeland when the time comes has to be a luxury in this well travelled world.

A dear uncle of mine died about 5 thousand miles away, a few days ago.

This is how far our tribe have migrated en masse in any serious manner, in the past 800 years at least.

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 123 of 2022


Break day 9 of district (Kotli) wide tour

Yet another Eid under occupation and slavery.


On the brighter side and in terms of productivity we have managed to input a daily diary entry every day without fail since the 29th of November 2021 (Day 333 of 2021) to date. There are just 4 daily entries missing since that day, which were totally unavoidable because I was in Kotli jail (between 10th March 2022 and 15th March 2022). However, I still managed to input a daily entry before I went to jail and also input a daily entry soon after being released. Thus, the days missing were: the 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th of March. 

This has been my most consistent run so far and long may it continue.
