Election ! Election ! But tell me if the politicians and bureaucrats guilty of crimes and corruption have not been held responsible and accountable and if there are increasing chances of rigging, how can there be any change in the country. Are the 200 big wigs who have trillions of dollars going to give up [...]
The PM of Pakistan was standing at Mens’ Store deciding would he look better in an Armani or Versace Suit. His English Instructor was due at his residence at 10 Am. Of course speaking English would be instrumental in passing him as an educated man and help deliver him from the scathing reviews of those [...]
It is not a particularly enriching future that we can visualize for Pakistan. During the current PPP government more than 100 Billion dollars were lost to corruption.

India had no legislature which could be remotely compared to the parliament in Britain. The assemblies were elected but they were not free and independent bodies. Party politics was organized largely on communal basis and within each community there were deep divisions: agricultural versus non-agricultural, urban versus rural and a host of sectarian, tribal and [...]
I recently saw a programme on GEO where an Olympic cyclist from Pakistan way back in 1960 and who won various other laurels for the nation now in his old age drives a rickshaw to support himself. Though he approached Shahbaz Sharif for help but his cries have gone unheard.
