A story has it that former President Parvez Musharraf actually thinks that human rights activist Asma Jehangir and he have something in common. They are both pall bearers of women's rights and emancipation or so he said recently. Witnesses say Musharraf actually approached Asma, known for her shoot-from-the-mouth attitude towards policy makers and was overheard making an interesting comment and request. "We should get together sometimes" he said "because we both support women empowerment, though we may have different ways of approaching the same goal." And this from a man who in the past would utter the unutterable at the very mention of Asma 's name, especially when the Mukhtaran Mai controversy was at its peak. Well someone has changed his views and it is not the lady activist. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * The PM's triplets, all sons, are keeping the social pages busy with their marital activities. One got married right after the PM's swearing-in and the walima reception was held at a friend's farmhouse. Now it is triplet number two, who is taking time off from business activities to tie the knot. Originally the venue was the same as the elder brother's but no friendly farmhouse environment for this one. Due to security concerns the nikah took place at the PM House and khana and gana reception at the Presidency. After all before President Zardari got elected he was a permanent guest at the PM House and this would be as good a time as any to return that hospitality. The walima reception is now due at the PM House. Although Mr Gilani is no Nero, he is certainly fiddling. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * They say that the current government is the patron saint of roving ambassadors (translate gushtee safir). There are so many around that even their patron saint has lost count. But now we hear that the PM has appointed an ambassador like no other_ a fashion ambassador. This lady designer from Lahore has not been given a job description. She is expected to innovate and amid frequent visits to beauty saloons and cosmetic surgeons, make several foreign junkets ostensibly to get the global fashionists to wear Pakistani. Apparently there is also a sizeable budget to support the cause and why not Pakistan's coffers are awash with extra cash.
