Last Sunday (September 15) was a very busy day, as several programs—of
interest to the Bay Area residents of Pakistan descent—took place, all on
Urdu Academy’s annual mushaira (12 pm-7 pm), a
presentation by TCF (The Citizen
Foundation), and theater and dance by Sheema Kermani and her troupe (7 pm-
10:30 pm), kept attendees running from one program to another. Chandni Restaurant in Newark appears to have
become the primary choice of Pakistanis for holding social events. Here you see Chandni’s owner Syed Sarwat (on right) with
journalist Abdus Sattar Ghazali.
