2008 - Year of the Rat

The Chinese New Year was celebrated a few days ago in a major way across the world. In Vancouver, where I reside, there is a sizeable Chinese Community - in fact the second largest in North America next to San Fran. Anyhow the reason this year is important to me is that I was born in the year of the Rat - so this will be a double whammy for me as it is also the year of the Golden Jubilee. So a special Happy New Year - or should I say Gung Hai Fat Choi - as we are but a month away from our New Year celebration of Navroz. So I hope you will have a great year and hope you will join me in wishing all our fellow Ismailis a fantastic 2008 and that all your wishes come true and that Allah's blessings flow multifold to you and your loved ones.
