It's very hard for me to get words and say sth about Gullalaii Yousafzai, the way She is doing and managing this BALANA.Its simply marvelous and Incredibly great work. She is strenghting Pashto language and culture.

I value the endeavor from the core of my heart.

Keep It UP.

I listened to Your recent progs in which you had interviewed Rafiq and Khayam sb the two young poets.Liked your sense of humor,v organized interviews,very friendly style which was not less than any international presenters of BBC or VOA.I am wondering if I can get recording of those interviews.

I pray for your success.

Hi, Gullalaii, I salutes n congratulates u on presenting such an amazing, and energetic program. 
I listen to your program enthusiastically on each Sunday(on-line) along with my family. It is indeed a huge achievement to get time for Pushto on a Punjabi Radio, well keep it up.
Similarly, your new series of interviewing noted personalities has made it more interesting.
I also appreciate the combination of Pushto n Urdu as it is necessary for the continuity of this program n providing chance for the Urdu speaking listeners to take interest in Pushto.
Plz pray for one of my colleague, Asma Nawar, a journalist who has lost her life in flood as the roof of her house collapsed.
Wishing u all the best,
Adil Khan, Peshawar

Salamoona Adil Jan,

Thanks a lot for you appreciation,tnx to u and ur family for listening BALANA on-line.Also thanks a million for liking interviews,I will do more for my listeners v soon.

One thing to mention AWAZFM is not a Punjabi Radio it is indeed a community Radio where programs are presented for every one.I am thankful to the management who supported me to present BALANA,thumbs up for them

AWAZ FM presenters n staff grieves with all those who have lost their loved ones in the recent floods in North and South Pukhtoonkhwa.

Salam Gullalaii,

Stah programme der informative dhey.

When I hear pushto songs on your show it takes me back, It brings a smile to my face when I remember my mum singing these songs in front of us kids in her own unique style.

Your show narrows the gap between my new home here and my old home in Paklistan.

Keep up the tremendous work, long may your show continue.

Sweet Gullalaii,

Your program on Health issues such as hepititis C and Menopause forced me to write to you.Though your program can pass all standards with flying colours,but  let me take an opportunity to appreciate your knowledge about health issues.I am myself from the medicine field and I am impressed by the way you delivered those programmes.

I also appreciate the easy language  you had choosen for the explanation of the medical terminologies ,in urdu was supereb.

You spoke so comfortably on sexual issues which are very inportant to discuss.Especially in Asian community, the lack of understanding and cultural barriers makes it difficult to discuss.I have not heard any other presenter of Awazfm to take this opportunity.

Simply impressive.MAy you keep doing this progamm in your sweet and innocent style.Allah bless you

Said this on 3-23-2011 At 08:16 pm

Rameez Sb,

Thanks for your detailed comments and appreciating my programms on Health issues.I agree with your opinion about the lack of  Health knowledge in Asian community.Also, I try to speak in Urdu on health issues so every one can understand and benefit from the imformation.

You have mentioned that you belong to the medicine field so I am inviting you to join me and give your comments on the specific topic in coming Balana.....

Pa meena

Gran (Dear)Asad Sb,

I am very  glad that BALANA does have listeners from UAE.You have mentioned that it is very dear for the listeners to call in to the show from UAE and requested for a TOll -free international access number.I regret that awazfm is a volunteer sector radio station and we do not have such calling facility.Alternatively listeners can call on Skype account and participate in BALANA.I appologies for any disappointment caused.
