Postcards for you~

  15. I thought Satnam and Shabnam were twin sisters until I saw the yet to be born baby part. Oh how good..How intense Satnam's love for her is...that he decides to write about the height of Kargil in his love letter for his beloved. I love this. Good work my dear friend Ghazala

    1. Hello Murugesh,


      Satnam is a male name. A common north Indian/Punjabi name.
      How could you confuse it with Shabnam? Shabnam is a common
      muslim name for a fair girl :)

      Thanks and glad your confusion was cleared :)

      has to come from heart and seem real.
