    Dear Awab
    Watched the show with great interest.It has improved a lot.Must admire Naveen’s wardrobe and contribution.

    You made a very valid point that USA interference into Pakistan politics makes us hugely frustrated.

    As a result of this response of Pakistan is rise in Nationalism and trillions of reasons to be more closed people finding their identity with Islamic past.

    Overall very honest laid back comment ,Well done Faisal,Naveen and Awab.

    Liked the sense of humor,particularly comment about imagine if all (NRO )were teeth patients.

    Sound pitch needs some improvement as sometimes it echoes in the empty room.

    By the way drawing room was fantastic ,cups did not match it:)
    Keep up the good work.Overall a very healthy dialogue emerged which sounds very sane.
    best of luck
    Waiting for the next episode:)
