Living in Pakistan


Today after 72 years of birth as a Pakistani we are still moving with no direction. This is what Socrates said 2500 years back that don’t try to find your destination like asking some blind man to find black cat in total darkness. But we are consistent in doing this.

Today the victims of this style are the 95% population of this country with no bread, no treatment and no education and finally no security of life.

Who are responsible for this? Those who did not create this country rather they opposed it. But now they have become the custodian of this country.

On one side the establishment is standing with their guns. On the other hand theocrats or Moulvis are standing with their fatwas and terrorists, finally politicians are standing with their corruption and government with its U turns.

This has created a country with immense corruption and zero governance. Everybody is involved in this with words on their lips that God may forgive them for this. This is how we all pray. Centuries ago someone had said “God! Make me honest and pious but not today”. This is how we have built our society with the same “dua” on daily basis.

There may be a reason for that as God has made every person different. He may have got tired by the time he got to Pakistan.

Everyone in Pakistan just blame US, India, Europe and Israel for their miseries. But whether we have thought that why they are dominating us. With their technology and research they are far ahead.

On one occasion in heaven the Moulvis and Taliban saw an American. It was strange for them as according to their belief no one apart from Muslims could enter in to heaven. They asked the American that why he is here. The American replied that he has just been called from hell to correct AC of Heaven that has gone out of order. So we see long queues of people from Tablighi Jamaat roaming here and there with green or black turbans with this belief but with ultra-modern mobile phones in their hands built by Jews or Christians. This is how we have evolved our society.

People sitting at the helm of affairs in Pakistan have no vision. While settling programs for future of working class they start like this.

The population of this country is 210 million. 60 million are retired. That leaves 140 million to do the work. There are 85 million in school, which leaves 55 million to do the work? Of this there are 35 million employed by the federal government, leaving 15 million to do the work. 2.8 million are in the armed forces preoccupied with law and order situation, which leaves 12.2 million to do the work. 10.8 million People work for state and city Governments, which leaves 1.4 million to do the work. At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work. Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons, that leaves just two people to do the work.This is how our government design its policies and matters are resolved.

So that is why for our first twenty years of our life we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave ourselves in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone. This is how our philosophy of passing life has been made.

In valuing time we act like an Employee whose Manager asked him: “This is the third time you’ve been late for work this week. Do you know what that means? “Employee replied: “That it’s only Wednesday and still three days are there.”

Most of the time our leaders have proved to be a taxi driver. In this regard a taxi passenger tapped the driver on the shoulder to ask him a question. The driver screamed, lost control of the car, nearly hit a bus, went up on the footpath, and stopped centimeters from a shop window. For a second everything went quiet in the cab, then the driver said, “Look mate, don’t ever do that again. You scared the day lights out of me!” The passenger apologized and said, “I didn’t realize that a little tap would scare you so much.” The driver replied, “Sorry, it’s not really your fault. Today is my first day as a cab driver – I’ve been driving a funeral van for the last 25 years.”

About our education the position is –

American forum: you ask a question, and then they answer to you.

Russian forum: you ask a question, and then they also ask a question to you.

Pakistani forum: you ask a question, and then they tell you for hours about how ignorant you are with no answer.

About pinpointing our problems the position is –

Q: What is one Pakistani on the moon?

A: a problem.

Q: What is two Pakistani on the moon?

A: Two problems.

Q: What are all the Pakistani on the moon?

A: Problem solved.

In another occasion when someone saw a mosquito with Dengi coming to him to suck his blood he cried that go away, if you are so fond of sucking human blood than become Finance Minister of Pakistan.

Now going for PTI, Imran Khan always come up with dashing ideas like for energy problem he once asked that all men and women of Pakistan fond of increasing population should stop and focus on creating electricity now.

While addressing a class of students he once asked that how we can create an Islamic Republic of Pakistan and if someone gave the rights answer than he would get 25 marks. Ten minutes passed and no reply came. At this Imran said fine you all have passed and have got 25 marks.

This is all but nothing like living in a country like Pakistan.
