Dear Readers,

As you all know that I was one of the volunteer in President-Elect Donald J Trump’s Presidential campaign.

As soon as I heard the news that our President-Elect Donald J.Trump and Vice-President Elect Mike Pence will be on a “Thank You Tour“, I was very happy.

Yesterday evening seeing the same movement once again, which I saw during the Election campaign when many of his supporters gathered at this historic event made me ecstatic. The event took place at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio. I started feeling the emotions of people who benefited from the Carrier Deal. How happy they must be, when how this God’s Messenger President-Elect Donald J.Trump made a deal with Carrier. How our President-Elect made for many Christmas and Holidays great by this gesture. He kept roughly 1,000 jobs in Indiana instead being outsourced to Mexico. “Thank you Carrier,” Trump said, adding he will do that all over the country.

I have seen the calamity of losing a job.  I am so happy that these Carrier employees job is being saved.

I was watching live on Fox news TV Channel as well as on Facebook live.

Even commented on Facebook live during this event.

Some of my favorite Videos and News Links of this event are:

God Bless America

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Dear Readers,

As I wrote in my previous blog post that my husband and myself will be hosting a victory party to celebrate the Victory of President-elect Donald J. Trump  and Vice-President-elect Mike Pence and his whole team.

I was honoured to be a volunteer in this campaign. I am so happy that I cannot describe. So I wanted to throw a party for my friends.

Also the mission of the party was to celebrate with friends and heal those friends whose candidate did not win. I had send invitations to my friends both sides of the aisle.that is to people with Republican and Democratic leanings.All my close friends  turned up and we all had a very good time.Thanks friends for coming.!

Here are some moments of the Victory Party:

Dear Readers,

My story starts with the environment I was born in India. So before reflecting on those facts why I volunteered in President-elect Mr. Donald J.Trump campaign, readers you should know who I am may be some readers specially young readers, reading might get inspired by my story.

I belong to one of the most prestigious family of India. Being the granddaughter of the renowned freedom fighter and thinker of India Prof. Abdul Aleem, (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdul_Aleem_(professor) Mahatma Gandhi  has always inspired me. I have been raised by learning about Mahatma Gandhi,  Abraham Lincoln , Pandit  Jawaharlal Nehru, Martin Luther King Jr., Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Maulana Azad, and other renowned personalities of the world.  I met Mrs. Indira Gandhi many times while growing up in India, and admired her a lot.  I have also met VijayLaxmi Pandit many times and admired her a lot.

My maternal grandfather, my mom Mrs. Jamila Siddiqi, and my dad, Prof. A. Majid Siddiqi influenced me a lot (http://drafshanhashmi.com/id19.html) and instilled in me the quality of communication through the medium of writing. I have grown up in the lap of  many famous people. Have met many political and literary giants in my life. I was presented by my  grandpa  Aleem when I was five years old on a Valentine Day the book written by Pandit  Jawaharlal Nehru, The Discovery of India  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Discovery_of_India.  This book when I grew up I read it and read many times it has led a great impression on me as to who I am. This book is the most important book in my life. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru wrote on a wide variety of subjects. Describing himself as “a dabbler in many things,” he committed his life to.

Some of my favorite quotes are:

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

-Mahatma Gandhi

“Without the assistance of the Divine Being … I cannot succeed. With that assistance, I cannot fail.”

– Abraham Lincoln

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

                                     Eleanor Roosevelt

In my genes are to be part of the movement.  So when I saw that President-elect Mr. Trump announced his candidacy and saw his views in the Contract with American Voter, I volunteered my time in his campaign.

https://assets.donaldjtrump.com/_landings/contract/O-TRU-102316-Contractv02.pdf

I have never met Mr.Trump till now but had in my mind since childhood, used to say to my family in India that one day I will go to America and meet Mr. Trump. I am very impressed the way he has led Trump organization. The way he has raised very smart children.  I have read all the books that have come on him. So to me he is a mentor in my mind.

 

 

When I wrote my first book The Modern Mughal Mentality-New Strategies to Succeed in India and the Global Marketplace I wanted him to write the foreword of my book as it is a business and Self-help book  but did not have those kind of connections.

As soon as I made an announcement of this to my friends that I am supporting Mr.Trump and am working as an volunteer in his campaign many of them just left me without even listening to what I have to say.

My only friends during the election time here in USA was  my wonderful husband, reading briebart news http://www.breitbart.com/ . and  seeing Fox news and Fox business news especially Mr. Hannity’s show on Foxnews http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/hannity/ and I love his show. I felt whatever accurate news I will get from this website and these channels then I can make my strategy to convince my family and friends to vote for him.  I was also a regular viewer of the Facebook live of Mr. Trump’s rallies .Also as I love reading and writing I have read all the books which are related to US election 2016 to accomplish this mission successfully.

I do not understand some of my friends anger with me. Everybody has an  opinion why people want to put their opinion on other people. But I said to myself that, ” Truth always Prevails”; and I will always support Mr.Trump and  will never give up.  People are living on paycheck to paycheck and I wanted to change that calamity for everyone and for generations to come. I have experienced the calamity of losing a job and have seen very hard times in my career but the only thing that was going on for me was that I did not lose hope. Being a part of silent majority I am so proud that I voted for Mr.Trump. Even throwing a victory party  to feel this success and have tried to invite people on both sides of the aisle my friends to sit down and heal them.

Lets see how many invited turn up who didnot vote for Mr.Trump.I heard while giving invitations that people have depression? Depression for what? Some are tired of listening to election. Just because their candidate did not win. Mr.Trump will be in my opinion  one of the best President of USA. One even said when you come to my party donot talk about Mr.Trump.I hate  hypocrisy.Mature up everyone. America has given you a lot and giving you all a lot and try to be nice to everyone.Adjust to learn to listen to the opinion of others with dignity.

I want to thank all of my family and friends who voted for Mr.Trump after listening to what I had to say. Now my job is to heal those friends who were not with me in this mission.Hopefully my “Victory Party” will heal many of my friends who were not with me on this mission!

I concur with  Dr. Ben Carson as I read on Briebart news website:

“I think actually a lot of people who have tried to demonize him will be quite shocked when they see who he really is,” he said.  “He’ll be a very easy person to work with as long as you’re reasonable, as long as you’re fair.”

Congratulations and Congratulations President-elect Mr.Donald J.Trump and his whole team for this success!

I am so happy that I cannot describe on his victory as our next President of  the United States. I am so honored to be part of his Big Truth League Team (https://www.donaldjtrump.com/landing/rapid-response) and be a part of this movement.

God Bless President-elect Mr.Donald J.Trump

and

God Bless America

Eid Mubarak or  Blessed Eid is the greetings everyone gives to each other on the day of Eid.

Eid al-Fitr is a “festival of breaking of the fast”. It is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide. This festival marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting  The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. The day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the month of Shawwal. The date for the start of any Hijri lunar  month varies based on the observation of new moon by local religious authorities, so the exact day of celebration varies by locality. Many wait to see the moon or an announcement from Mecca; the Fiqh Council of North America has determined that Eid al-Fitr 2016  falls on July 6 based on astronomical calculations. Eid al-Fitr has a particular Salat or Islamic prayer, consisting of two Rakats (units) and generally offered in an open field or large hall.

Chaand Raat means the eve of the Muslim festival of Eid ul-Fitr; it can also mean a night with a full moon.

Chaand Raat is a time of celebration when families and friends gather in open areas at the end of the last day of Ramadan to spot the new moon, which signals the arrival of the Islamic month of Shawwal and the day of Eid. Once the moon is sighted, people wish each other Chaand Raat Mubarak meaning have a blessed night of the new moon” or Eid Mubarak. Women and girls decorate their hands with  henna, and people prepare desserts for the next day of Eid and do the last round of shopping.

City streets have a festive look, and brightly decorated malls and markets remain open late into the night. Chaand Raat is celebrated festively and passionately by Muslims all over South Asia.

Last year I did not celebrate Eid due to loss of my mom. Within 5 years I lost my mom ,dad and younger brother. This year I lost my younger brother but my younger brother who was an autistic child always loved dressing up on Eid. So as a tribute to him I celebrated Eid although Eid is not celebrated if one has death in the family.. My younger brother always appreciated good food and my hands full of henna. I would always talk to him about new clothes and going to Chaand Raat. I am missing him terribly. He was my guarding angel. Although I faced the death of my parents very bravely but to cope up with the death of my younger brother is very hard.My younger brother and myself are two bodies but one soul.My younger brother loved music and Chaand Raat and good food and clothes.

I attended the Chaand Raat hosted by F & A Entertainment at Dulles Expo center in Chantilly Virginia.

 Chaand Raat was well organized and loved Amir paying tribute to Amjad Sabri one of my most favorite Sufi Singer who was recently killed in Pakistan. Since childhood I have grown up listening to him his father and uncle. His father and uncle even performed at my parents place in India. One of my favorite Amjad Sabri’s Sufi song and his father’s and uncle songs we all enjoyed are:

Amjad Sabri’s Sufi song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWucCwsU_tw

Amjad Sabri’s father and uncleSufi song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCsnGPV-RKc

Also I loved this Sufi Song in Bollywood movie Bajrangi Bhaijaan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7N5UW9u1uhE

Creativity and Innovation and everything glam has always fascinated me. In Chaad Raat the fashion show was good. Just loved the singer Jaggy and Tammna  Miss South Asia USA 2015 (https://twitter.com/Tamz_1231 Www.southasiainc.com  ) was gorgeous. All the other singers and artists were also very good. Especially loved the children who performed. There were stalls of beautiful clothes and sumptuous cuisine from India and Pakistan. I enjoyed a lot and chilled out in the company of very good friends Rashid, Ariena, and Ariena’s wonderful nephew whom I adore; Arshad  and his relatives from Texas. Rashid, Ariena, and Arshad and his wife Mona are those friends who are always there for me in the good and bad times. Also was invited at many places on Eid and thank all the friends who opened their hearts and home for my husband and myself on Eid day especially Shaista and Uzair, Dr.Ishrat Husain, and Anjum and Iklaq. You all rock friends and thank you for always there for me in good and bad times! Enjoyed a lot at all these places. Once again Happy and Blessed Eid to everyone!

Bollywood, Hollywood and film personalities around the globe have always fascinated me, I love Creativity and Innovation. My first book The Modern Mughal Mentality ( http://afshanhashmi.com/the_modern_mughal_mentality1/ ) is about Creativity and Innovation and it is already a best-seller on Amazon in a category.

On September 25 I attended the opening night gala and walked the red carpet with filmmakers and actors from around the globe in Washington DC South Asian Film Festival 2015 (DCsaff).  The opening film of the festival was Bonjour Ji and SAARI RAAT https://dcsaff.com/opening-night-2015/ ). I loved both the movies.

Since childhood I always admired Aparna Sen and yesterday loved to interact with her as well as dined with her.To know more about DCsaff please visit their website: (https://dcsaff.com/category/dcsaff2015/).

Here is the you tube link of one my memorable moment from Yesterday’s event::

Here are some photographs of the event:

https://plus.google.com/photos/106103940674813964651/albums/6198972172549391489

The film festival was opened by  very good friends of mine  Frank Islam and Debbie Dreisman. Frank is from the same university where I have studied in India the prestigious Aligarh Muslim University (http://www.amu.ac.in/). I felt very proud last night that Frank Islam (http://frankislam.com/ )and myself Dr.Afshan Hashmi ( http://drafshanhashmi.com/ http://www.afshanhashmi.com/ )two Aligs ( Aligs are people who have studied at Aligarh Muslim University) walked the red carpet with so many dignitaries.

Cheers and Enjoy reading it and let me know your thoughts!
