ISLAMABAD: Imagining festivity of Eidul Fitr without near and dear ones is a nightmare. To almost all of us such feelings send shiver through spines. But there are hundreds in capital who will celebrate this joyous moment without their loved ones.
Daily Times learnt that there are 20 elders living in Edhi Home in Islamabad.
Mohammad Fiaz, a 75-year-old blind man belonging to Gujar Khan is also living in Edhi Home for four years. He has six sons and a wife threw him out of house and he was living in Edhi Home. He said that what would be the life of a person whose sons had told their father to get lost. He said he missed his family on Eid but he also knew that no one from his family would come to visit him.
