Pakistan needs a fresh & revived image … and who can produce it ? Only its people..
People, in general, seem to be more knowledgeable, but less willing to get up and do something. They are more energetic but dont know where to utilize their talent. We are more aware but have become very fond of talking, long discussions and debates, still while being seated.
We have a good system of interactive media but are now used to just shrugging our shoulders for whatever is happening as if its not our concern. Most of the people keep bragging about their resources (obviously limited) in a way as they hold the keys to strong rooms of a few banks.
Fake degrees scandals have brought a confusion among the genuine graduates as, if anybody even relies on their abilities now.
We also need to look into a large number of educated female population, while they just spend their time at home, watching TV dramas and movies & waiting for the maids to come and do the daily chores for a meager wage.
Then, there are children, who are sent to expensive schools only to pass written exams and no practical training for tomorrow’s competitive world.
On the other hand, there are friends and relatives, who expect great spending on the parties, one is going to throw, on the occasions like marriages, birthdays, wedding anniversaries, etc.
Then, there this lifestyle thing comes…One feels the need to show off their “status” to fit in this scenario.
Who will START ?
Remember, its not only us in Pakistan, who have such problems, but we need to be very quick to address them
It sounds so weird if someone even utters anything against all these traditions, which have crept in our society… but now seems a right time to do that as we are close to our National Day on 14 August 2010 !!! Its time when we really should look back and learn what have we earned and lost.
We need to stop for a while.. and see, where are we going? Who are we fooling? Who are we going to impress and who is actually being impressed ?
Its us, who have to live here and prosper. Its us who have to make the best use of our time to do something fruitful and positive for ourselves and others. This is the only way we can help unhappy, unwell, frightened, confused, and totally frustrated beings in our society.
Its time to change ourselves…
Men, women, children, educated, illiterate, working, non-working..no matter whosoever is there ...
Just start doing something productive, without wasting the time, the best natural gift to us.
We are a nation with one of the largest human potential, yet we remain dull and backward… I know, such things have been said to previous generations too and now they have grown old.. and things forgotten.. Do we want to be like them?
We need to be different.. and that’s where we will be so… OUR THINKING !!!
Be Positive.. Be Green.. Pakistan Zindabad !!!
