President Asif Ali Zardari has been facing rough weather for some time now with tremendous pressure both at domestic and international fronts but as it drizzles he feels that the lady luck might be finally smiling at the him.
After a day full of meetings with US President, Barack Obama, and the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, as Zardari reached the Naval Observatory residency of the Vice President, Joe Biden, it started raining, which reminded him of the popular belief in South Asia that it is good omen.
“Whenever it rains, that’s good luck,” Zardari told the US Vice President as they walked out onto the porch last evening for a photo session. Biden had hosted a reception and dinner for the two visiting presidents and their delegations.
When a reporter asked Biden about the trilateral meet the Vice-President said,“It’s been a good day. And we’ve had a good thing going here. We’re going to go in and talk a little more over dinner.”
As they started walking back Zardari commented, “And besides, whenever it rains, that’s good luck.”
With the US asserting its support for democracy not favouring any military coup and Clinton calling him to say that she empathizes with his situation, Zardari, who till a fortnight ago, was said to be counting his days, is probably returning back home a more confident President.
