This is definitely a Bibi Shirini morning

It's hard to be down in the dumps while listening to this rousing rendition of the ever-popular Bibi Shirini, which is not to say there aren't fights about the song. Those who declaim that music brings people together have never read some comments at YouTube in which Afghans and Pakistanis call each other the most awful names during disputes over the song's provenance.  

Then there was the ngo that changed the lyrics to make the ode to feminine beauty into a heart-tugging statement on the lack of rights for Afghan women.     
But that just goes to show everybody loves Bibi Shirini.
