Just when we were shocked by Trump’s anti Muslim and anti-Minority rhetoric, India the so called world’s largest democracy (but also the practical joke of the world); a country where over five hundred million people don’t have a toilet to go to (because they cannot afford to build one); where over one third of the population lives in desperate poverty yet is ready to enter into an arms race with China (whose economy is $10 trillion bigger than India’s), a country whose capital city Delhi also holds the privilege of being the rape capital of the world has just given us another shocking surprise.
If you believe that China-Pakistan economic corridor (or CPEC as it is more commonly known) is just a superhighway than perhaps you face a serious dearth of knowledge for far from this not only will CPEC take Pak-China partnership to new heights but make facilitation of trade the backbone of Pakistan’s future foreign and economic policy.
Sleep is one of the basic necessities of life. Yet, like our health, we more than often just take it for granted.
With the best in our team either banned or unfit, Pakistan seems to hardly stand a chance in 2015 world cup! Though PCB may claim that many of the recent incidents were out of their hands yet a sane mind fails to fathom why the board failed to draw up policies in the last four years to ensure that by 2015 the best of our lot will be prepared to battle it out in Australia!
This past year, I went from weighing 110 kilograms to 95 kilograms. Since then, a million people (or so it seems) have asked me for the secret of my weight loss. I know we all want immediate gratification and that we, therefore, love diets which promise to make us lose two pounds a DAY. But one rule of thumb to remember is that the quicker you lose weight the more likely it is to come back faster.
We as a nation have a tendency to not accept our mistakes. Just take a look at terrorism as an example. Though we blame India, yahoodi lobbies and all that but is that not a fact that our society does possess such elements.
Who doesn’t want success in life! Who doesn’t want to move up the ladder of success higher and higher? Yet the question remains who is prepared to work for that?
Mullahs of Pakistan are clearly having their day. From admonishing sermons at helpless passerby’s to the Qabza of state land for building Madrasahs, Mullahs seem to be at the pinnacle of their fun.
A few years ago I had the privilege of studying in an international school where students from at least a dozen different nations used to study. One day a discussion broke out about whose country is best in what.
With the arrival of the next cricket world cup drawing near, it’s hardly a surprise for anyone to see the signs of cricket craze on the streets of Pakistan. And though we as a nation were most perturbed when India out of the blues managed to sneak out another world cup win, maybe it was a sigh of relief to see the Aussies loose for once.
