A special introduction to the January 2008 Webcast by Kavita Chhibber

Pakistan in Turmoil: Benazir and Beyond

The images are haunting…. The loaded gun, the fiery bomb blast, and stunned humanity in bloodied tatters and tears.

It seems just like yesterday when a tall, lissome 17 year old girl shyly made her way to Simla with her father and charmed an entire Indian nation and its leader, but Benazir Bhutto’s journey is nothing like that of Indira Gandhi even though many say Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was inspired subconsciously to groom his exceedingly bright and beautiful daughter the same way Nehru had groomed his. Sadly her death is as tragic but more untimely..

The life of the Bhutto family seems intrinsically intertwined with the politics of the land and the fragrance of the earth of Pakistan, in whose eternal embrace many members rest today. In an exclusive, many prominent voices from five countries, share their thoughts on the state of affairs in Pakistan, its future and the Bhutto legacy with Kavita Chhibber, in the first segment of her webcast.

Kavita Chhibber would like to thank the late Benazir Bhutto’s husband and PPP CO-chairman Asif Ali Zardari for taking the time to talk to her, Farhatullah Babar for arranging the interview and Pakistani Journalist Rubab Saleem who handles media relations for Kavitachhibber.com in Pakistan for working round the clock to make this interview happen. Many thanks to journalist Najam Sethi who had just landed at the airport and was gracious enough to do the interview enroute to his house. Many thanks also to journalist Beena Sarwar who was in Sindh and patiently put up with a bad connection and a few technological glitches to do her interview. Kavita will be back with more interviews on this webcast relating to the Pakistan crisis.
