(Fatima Ilyas, Karachi)

"We haven't enough money to get medicine for father", the younger sister said in utter disappointment. Meanwhile a rascal came there and tried to humiliate the elder sister. The younger sister slapped him with all her might. He began to shout; spectators gathered there and calmed him down by saying that, "curse them they just do denigrate gentlemen".

Sisters remained quiet but had a chain of tears in their eyes.
