A wish as cavernous as the colour of my blood: Happy Birthday Aseefa! – By Saria Benazir.

195951_475600912459720_876084483_nThe white dupatta suspended on her head and her spacious smile with equivalently woeful, yet indomitable eyes splits my heart but ignites it with a glint of hopefulness; she has begun from where her martyred mother had left for the creation of a bright future for her native land which carries the Bhutto blood. Aseefa is a re-embodiment of Shaheed Mohtarmah Benazir Bhutto, in the fabulous looks and dauntless behavior. Catching a smirk of her, the hymns of ‘Zinda Hai Bibi Zinda Hai’ already initiate to ricochet in the ambiance, for she is the manifestation of her mother’s promise to her people.

Benazir Bhutto’s blood runs in her veins. The youngest of the three siblings, she is the heartthrob of every jiyala, barely 14 when she lost her raptures that lied in mama’s lap. Those tears, every time I hark back to carve ineradicable cracks in my heart – greater soreness that one could put up with, yet Aseefa’s courage overwhelms the universe and overawes her mother’s assassins more than the bombs and bullets they deployed to snatch her mother from her. Her slogans of Jeay Bhutto make their way unswervingly to the soul of the people who label her as Benazir Junior, an axiom she accurately merits and is fated to be.

‘Mama, I cry every night when you are away and Baba is in jail’. She is truly a daddy’s girl. Her startling similitude with her father, especially in that larger than life smile synonymous with endurance and triumph has made her invincible. She is the daughter of the strongest man in Pakistan – Asif Ali Zardari, who was devoid of basic human rights in captivity for eleven and half years without a single conviction and who saved the country in the repercussion of December 27, 2007 by his slogans of ‘Pakistan Khappay’; thus figuring a new history of resistance and resilience.

Benazir Bhutto lives in every speck of her. Aseefa Bhutto Zardari was the first Pakistani child to get inoculated against polio by her mother, thereby kick starting the anti – polio drive in Pakistan and Aseefa has embarked on to accomplish Shaheed Mohtarmah Benazir Bhutto’s dream by making Pakistan polio- free by her vigorous campaigning against the menace with remarkable resolve. God bless those hands that are all set to transform Pakistan’s fate by administering polio drops herself to the children to guarantee that no one is crippled for life. She was appointed as Pakistan’s Ambassador for polio eradication in her teenage, which itself reveals her matchless bravery to carry a huge responsibility too early in life, but undoubtedly, she has been created for a greater rationale – beyond ordinary conception.

She, at the core is very humanitarian. A few months ago, she took her jump for humanity by skydiving to help raise funds to support the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. You do not entail going further to find an exemplar of a super woman – unrivaled gorgeousness with an even unsurpassed audacity is what makes the Bhuttos affable and an enticement for the masses. Her fondness for the animals is inexpressible; the youngest Bhutto Zardari girl is always seen nurturing her cats who are auspicious to have the presence of this exquisite human being sent to alter the fate of Pakistan to an improved, healthier and enlightened future.

Aseefa Bhutto Zardari is an Iron Lady in the making. She has inherited these nerves of steel from her mother, Shaheed Mohtarmah Benazir Bhutto, who gained an endless life after being riddled with bullets. She has surfaced as the leader of Pakistan’s future generation following her elder, likewise enthralling siblings Bakhtawar and Bilawal. Aseefa believes in sharing her smile with the world, analogous to her father Asif Ali Zardari who is the only head of state to have donated his body organs.

From thousands of miles apart and gashed by numerous dividers, nothing can impede me from being the greatest ABZ aficionado. Love and prayers for you stream incessantly like the waters. As cavernous as the color of my blood, this birthday wish comes from the deepness of my heart and soul. Happy Birthday, my sister and my leader!
