My blog has yielded to me a treasure of connections with souls that I would not have encountered otherwise.
Through one of the comments left at the first post here, I discovered the website of an Italian natural perfume-seller. This person, who writes most engagingly, visited Pakistan to help build easy-to-build homes for the (forgotten) homeless after the earthquake. He also visited Bahawalpur, and as it turned out, knew my shaikh, Hazrat Wahid Baksh Sial Rabbani (RA).
At his website here, our Italian perfume-maker wrote some words – precious to me – about my shaikh and about his mazar in the town of Allahabad in Bahawalpur. I also enjoyed his travelogue about his journey through Kashmir and Pakistan.
