Author is a student of Political Communications & Religion at Central European University

 

Aamir Zaki and Irfan Maseeh meet in the heavens above us, right about in this very moment in time:
Irfan: Sir, you are the great Aamir Zaki. Right? *all excited*
Aamir: Arrrh… yes. *in an anxious voice*
Irfan: Sir, big fan! ‘Mera Pyaaar’ inspired me to propose to my wife… now widow unfortunately.
Aamir: Oh… thank you. And you are? *still in an anxious voice*
Irfan: Sir, I’m just an average sewer cleaner from Umerkot, I inhaled some poisonous gas today while attempting to unclog a manhole… and here I am. You sound nervous sir, is there something bothering you?
Aamir: I’m sorry to hear that, well…. yes.. I’m a bit nervous about meeting the Creator. *shifting his position slightly*
Irfan: Sir, the Creator is magnanimously generous, why are you nervous?
