Bhar De Jholi

The President of Pakistan…

The only thing that comes to my mind while watching any news regarding him on TV- specially when he’s out of country having ‘important’ meetings around the world.. begging for aid, is;

bhar de jhooli meri ya….

wonder when he’d stop begging and I still wonder where that money would go… Ever wondered where the money from the ‘President Relief Fund’ would go? I mean haven’t we experienced the billion dollars being somehow vanishing from under our noses that was collected for the Earthquake victims. Bechare people still livving in makeshift tents even when it’s snowing and below zero degree. And all of us have already seen how the smiling President and his wife hoarded up money in swiss banks! Now the hubby would have all the money to himself…

‘hum k iss ehed mein jeenay ka guman rakhte hain
Chasme hairaan ki zubaan mun mein kahan rakhte hain

Shattered!

I was watching a  T.V. Programme on saturday night. It was a late night LIVE show and they were taking Live calls as well. In the midst of the show, a young woman called from the most elite part of Karachi. She seemed educated as she used English as a medium to transfer her ideas to the audience. She added at the end of her conversation that she’ll vote for PPP because she thinks Bilawal is “hot”! I was shocked! Flabbergasted! Disgusted!

We talk about Democracy and yet even the educated lot of this country has no sense of using their power of “voting”. The Fate of this country is now in the hands of the youth who considers facade and hollow materialism to be the most important things in life! So, now we’ll have models (female/male) cat-walking in our assemblies!

I need a break! I need to breathe! WE NEED TO WAKE UP!

Confused…

Cheema is hilarious. I’m talking about the press conference that he had saying that Benazir Bhutto was killed by the lever of the sun roof of her Land Cruiser. Either he himself has gone mad or thinks that we are crazy to believe him.

Another press conference that was entertaining was the one held by PPP. Asif Zardari was the key spokesperson there. Benazir Bhutto, who claimed to be the protector and a fighter for democracy, named her son as the successor and her husband to be the co-chair person of PPP. Is that the true spirit of democracy?! No party elections, she just named her son in her will to be the heir to the throne of PPP! Interesting, isn’t it?!

Today, near my brother’s workplace in North Karachi Industrial Area, things went bad again. One of the factories which resumed the normal working routine was set ablaze with one of the petrol pumps. The rangers which my brother saw in the morning vansihed when they were needed! And the news channels didn’t report this nor did the city mayors confirmed any such reports.

In other words, the common man and his property is not safe. People now are afraid to go out after dark, and even under the naked sun they walk with caution. Life is paralized! Pakistan’s economy is paralyzed! And now when every nationalist is talking about further dividing the land, I’m reminded of the map of Pakistan that CIA released. The map which is moth eaten. And I wonder if all it’s been planned ahead by international agencies…

And I’m still thinking…
