But the elite have never spent their own wealth and just piled it up. That is typical of the 'siege mentality' prevalent all over the land of the pure. On our part we should just go into the interior of Sindh and help out the 'flood affectees' in whatever way we can. Believe me sir! there are many like-minded who are quietly doing it on their own. Salams to you.
