I taught my wife to make French toast: Musharraf

ISLAMABAD: President Pervez Musharraf claims to have taught his better half the recipe to a perfect French toast even though he admits to little cooking indulgence.

The president gave this insight into his personal life ‘and more’ when he and First Lady Sehba attended a children’s programme, which will hit the airwaves on GEO at 10:05am today. Musharraf and Sehba were special guests in the Bachey Mann Ke Sachey episode, which coincides with the Independence Day.

The programme was recorded at the Aiwan-e-Sadr during which children posed a number of questions. Musharraf was a little concerned over the burdensome homework students are asked to do but advised them to strike a balance between work and play.

In a lighter vein, the president told the children it was fine to play pranks and that he himself was a mischievous child. But he admitted children of the current generation were much smarter than they ever were, and therefore, they also had greater expectations of them. He however, advised them that it was very important to have a positive frame of mind, strength of conviction and self-confidence to succeed.

Sehba recalled Musharraf was a fair help where cooking in the early days. Asked what she liked most about her husband, Sehba put it down to a good sense of humour. The First Couple joined pop singers Nadeem Jaffery and Mohammad Ali Shehki as well as the participating children to render national songs. As well as being a part of the Independence Day celebrations, the programme also marked the fourth anniversary of GEO.
