Since adding the ‘lost and Found‘ page at Uddari, i have received many unpublishable text and image items about various precious lost things such as love, first love letter, last txt message, Sohni the Cat, Lapuslazuli necklace; and, red leather shoes, ancestral residential dwellings, unpublished poems, dating venues, lost herstories and cultures, diamond rings, memories, and of course, the dear heart/s!
All these are indeed precious things and their loss can hardly be sustained but the Lost And Found page at Uddari is to find PEOPLE not things, animals, senses, passions or places.
We have so far, tried to find two lost item: A UN report on languages, and a Lahori FM radio Host. Out of the two, after months of struggle, we have found only one: the Radio Host! Thanks to Ms. Kaki in Lahore, we can now claim 50% success in our endeavors. Lessons learnt from the 50% failure: we are best suited to find people, not things.
The discussion on who is ‘people’ and who is not does not belong here. Afzal Saahir is as much a people as you or me, may be even more so if we take into account all his fans.
Also, please, only send information about lost people that you actually want to find. Why list all the particulars of a lost person, and then say ‘Hate to Find Him’ at the end? I mean, what am i supposed to do with it?
