On 3 June 1947 all the Indian leaders got together and put their seal on the Partition Plan. Seated by the map on the wall is Lord Ismay, Mountbatten's Chief of Staff who probably tampered with the Radcliffe Award and gave Gurdaspur to India to keep the two new countries in a perpetual state of war over Kashmir till eternity!For 3 days only Mountbatten, Ismay and Abel (Private Secretary to Viceroy) had access to the Radcliffe Award before it was announced amidst bloodshed on 15 August 1947. Both Muslim members of the Punjab Boundary Commission Justice Din Mohammed (later Governor of Sindh) and Justice Munir (later Chief Justice of Pakistan) denied that this was the award they had agreed to. When Sir Cyril Radcliffe was sent his cheque of 2,000 pounds as the fee for services rendered, he simply tore it up.

While Asghar Khan opted for politics after retirement and never cared for power, Nur Khan was Deputy CMLA, Minister for all the Social Sectors and Governor of West Pakistan.

A member of Pakistan entourage woke up the Foreign Minister and told him on the telephone, "The bastard is dead". Still in his sleep Bhutto asked, "Which one?"Ayub Khan's dejection may be seen more in his slumped posture, because his dark glasses hide much of what he may have been feeling. ZAB's carefully orchestrated aloofness, his sullen detachment from the "peace-making" charade, and his pensive 'head-down' posture, were meticulously executed by him with his eye on the launch of his leadership role in the near future.Third President of Pakistan 1969-1971.

Mr Bhutto received himRemembering Zaibunissa Hamidullah 1921-2000Zaibunnissa Hamidullah was a pioneer amongst women journalists of South Asia . A column writer for English newspapers, including Dawn, Zaibunnissa launched Pakistan 's first woman's weekly in English, "The Mirror". Even though a socialite magazine, it often created ripples by its strong political editorials critical of the policies and actions of the rulers of the day in a language and style that at times earned her the wrath of the wielders of power. The power of her pen rattled Ayub Khan when she lashed out at him for elevating himself to the rank of Field Marshal, and in November 1957, his predecessor Iskander Mirza, shut the paper down for six months when the Mirror flayed him for dismissing the Suhrawardy Ministry. The paper was read as much for its social content as for the biting sarcasm and wit that characterized the writings of its editor. The magazine closed down in 1972 after twenty-one years of struggle against authoritarian trends in our politics and bigotry and fanaticism in society. The sting in her writings earned her quite a few enemies, but even her detractors admired her for the courage of conviction and the strength of character she displayed throughout her professional and personal life.Sir Abdullah Haroon with his daughter Doulat HaroonFriends turned Foes - Sherbaz Mazari with Z A Bhutto in 1959Z A Bhutto with Indira Gandhi in the lush lawns of Simla 1972 negotiationsZeba and Waheed Murad. The most popular couple of Pakistan 's film history seen here in the movie 'Armaan' in 1966BRISTOL HOTEL – KARACHI (1910-1994)For those who may remember the Bristol Hotel Karchi was constructed by a Welshman in 1910 near the Cantonment Railway Station-Karachi, parallel to the rail tracks between Karachi Cantt and Karachi City Railway Station. It is in close proximity to the current location of the British Council. Initially a Tavern & Bistro for the affluent ones..mostly the high echelons and army officials under the British Raj of early 1900s. The hotel was also mostly the venue of the most talked about New Year parties, May Queen Ball and wedding parties and became the most popular place of Kolachi or Kurracchee then which continued till the late fifties when the Welshmen's son Grout, left for UK selling it to a Pakistani namely Mr Rizvi, an income tax officer in 1960. At that time, Karachi had hardly a few hotels, which were worth a stay; Metropole, Palace, Beach Luxury, Grand, Excelsior, Taj…with Intercontinental (now PC) commencing its operations in May 1961. Mr. Rizvi maintained the grandeur of BRISTOL and it's BAR and particularly it's cuisine, which was probably the best in Karachi attracting people from far and wide. The New Year Parties and May Queen Ball continued with the same fervor and glamour. During the sixites the price tag of NYP entry for a couple was Rs.300 - a small fortune in those days. The Bristol continued to attract affluent Karachi-ites for it's cuisine, large rooms, lush green lawns with Saturday Night Discos and Night Club with groups from Thailand, Germany and France were in attendance later adopted by the Minwallas of Metropole for their ever popular SAMAR night club and dine out of the seventies. The BRISTOL Hotel breathed it's last when it was attacked by some dacoits and Mr. Rizvi suffering injuries in 1994 which re-occurred and within six months. Mr Rizvi was virtually forced to call it quits. The building of the hotel, however, remains as a home now. It is said that the American movie star Donna Reed stayed at Bristol sometime in 1961 during her overnight visit to Karachi enroute to Cairo on the arrangement by PAN AMERICAN airlines which used to house it's crew at Malir's GRAND Hotel of Minwallas, near Karachi Stargate Airport of 1935.

If you`ve landed on this site five minutes ago, you`ve probably already figured out some of my interests: preparedness, U.S. politics, DIY, health and food security. Just reading the titles of the articles I post here is enough to get what subjects make me tick.
However, I must confess something. The idea of creating this site has a more selfish origin, which also reveals the #1 on my interests list: my family. I swear I would do ANYTHING to protect them and make them happy. My wife Ana and my two boys, David and Andrew, are the world to me. When I nearly lost them in a fire 6 years ago, I became this survival fanatic who dreamed of living in a water-proof, fire-proof and unbreakable plastic bubble, together with his family.
I`m not that person anymore. I`m more relaxed now, but that`s only because I know I`m prepared for anything. But when I look around and I see Americans are ten times more relaxed than I am, but not because they`re prepped to the teeth… but because they`re simply ignorant… I`m thinking they might use a daily dose of good, old paranoia, just to open their eyes to what`s going on in the U.S.
And that`s why I created this site. To help Americans see beyond the pink lenses of their glasses. Well, that didn`t work out that well. And I`m actually glad it didn`t. Because what I`ve created here is even more important: the MyFamilySurvivalPlan community. Made of people interested in the same issues, people who love their families more than anything in the world, who want to protect their kids and their homes and who want to see this country change into better. And I want to thank you for being part of this community. People like you are the ones I write for."
