    Indeed, Folk singer Abida Parveen is a legend for us. one comes to know the real meaning of the words when she is Singing the sufi poetry. I pray for her early recovery. . All the people of pakistan should pray for her recovery and those who have enough must help her financially. She might need their help but she would not say for herself. I am a low paid employee but certainly I would help her to my level. She is a great singer and great woman.Recommend
