First share of my world for June’22

Melanie, our gracious host of SYW has asked these questions this week;


When you were a kid, did you eat the crusts on your sandwich or not?

I love the first slice of the bread and crusts too. I never take them off while making bread pudding. Only when I wanted to make sandwiches for a party, I’d take off the crust but it always felt wasteful.

Are you a fan of musicals—why or why not?

Not particularly! Some older movies where the song comes naturally as a part of the story, are fine but otherwise, the only musicals I like are the animated ones.

Is it difficult to do what you do? (for a living, hobby etc.). If you’re retired, what you ‘did’ previously for a job can be substituted.

I have always been a homemaker since I married. Being a mother to three kids was an extremely hectic job. Now all of them are married and have their own kids. My job is still of a homemaker but it more relaxed now and my one important duty is to spoil my grandkids.

What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to? (Doesn’t have to be a rock concert either).

I think way back when I was fond of going to live music concerts, we went to a few concerts arranged by the club we were members of. I mostly like Urdu pop songs and qwalis!

Mast qalandar- Qwali


Looking back over your life, what is one thing you’re grateful for? One thing you really regret?

I can’t say that I don’t regret anything that I’ve done in my life but I believe that every mistake I’ve made has taught me something. So I wouldn’t want to pick up one thing that I’ve regretted over others. As for the thing I am most grateful for, it would be the faith that I’ve developed over time in God/Allah. This is the most valuable asset of my life and I’m immensely grateful for it.

Thanks Melanie for these interesting questions.

  1. Thanks Sadje for Sharing Your World. You have a wonderful sunny attitude and I privately believe that having that wonderful optimism attracts good things your way. You did one of the most under-rated yet vitally important ‘jobs’ in the world, and you excelled at it too (obviously). Such blessings! That music clip was great, thanks for sharing ‘your’ music with me! 😀 Have a peaceful week!

    1. Thanks a lot Melanie. Your kind words are much appreciated my dear friend. I love this song and this singer. He is a Turk and knows many languages. His English songs/ hymns are wonderful too.
