After Milad, we went to Lodhran’s Pir’s house. I didn’t know him. I discussed some personal affairs with him. He told me he will settle me with someone now but the only condition was that I wouldn’t get to see her before. When I met her, it was Dania.” Hussain continued, “But when I did meet her, I came to know that when she was a kid and would cry, her parents would put on Aalim Online to calm her.”

I didn’t think he was real.”
To meet someone you have idealised since you were a kid, someone you have been obsessed with and he just appears in front of you; how would you feel?”
