she said he was happy to see my hard work and passion, Before that he said a female can not be a dhol player. its very hard job for a female. But few days ago he said few words to me which are a big award for me. He said

“Tu suchal malang Hai tunay apni adar ko Mar k mardana Roop apnaya or phir Mola ki noubat galay main Dali. Main tuj say both khush Hon. Ja Mola nay tujhay parwaz bakhshi”

I have spent last two months with him and his family, Once there was a Thursday and I took off for 4 hours from hospital by telling a lie, saying that we need to go to bank for financial matters to be done. And I took him to Shah Jamal sarkar. That was the day he was in his full bloom.

Government of Pakistan has awarded Tamgha-e-Imtiaz to Pappu Sain for his dedicated work, cultural promotion and showing soft Image of Pakistan to whole world.
