    One failed state helping another. Good. I like the camaraderie. Mugabe will be given Nishan-e-Pakistan.

    I remember news of them printing billion dollar notes. The inflation rate I heard was so high that prices were increasing by the minute. Don't know how it is right now. But jokes apart zimbabwe have not offered any money but offered to tour pak for cricket which will earn them millions in revenue as the stadiums will be packed to see zimbabwe take on pak.

    Oh we guys are cool mate don't worry. Just wondering how will it help in any way?? In fact pak will have to shell out money to play the matches, give protection etc... Zimbabwe rather not go to pak,

    On that note I wonder why pak has not called off their tour of england in the face of this tragedy. Or is it that they are just following in the foot steps of their great leader.

    People who live right here in India are well acquainted to the realities know the situation better.There is so much anger & frustration. When you live in a safe foreign country its easy to feel such comments are disgusting.

    If Zimbabweans are offering to tour Pakistan to help flood victims when 1600 dead, 2 millions homeless, etc I dont think its bad timing at all.

    There must be something cooking between Govt-Govt of Zimbabwe & Pak. Maybe Zimbabwe is looking for some help from Pak in terms of investment of Pvt companies or maybe arms or some training or maybe Pak is ready to pay Zimbabwe's satellite bills so that their people can enjoy Television/Internet service.

    Its good that one state is helping another. Even if the real help reaching those affected is 1% of whatever deal they are working on. I just hope Zimbabwe doesn't burn its hand while dealing with Pak.
