I am still speechless after reading the headlines about our prospective president. Will return to write more once I regain my ability to write..

On a brighter front, news channels in the US are constantly raising Sen Biden’s name as Obama’s potential VP. He is one person who understands foreign policy and the world is very much in need of such a person. Why can’t we have decent political leadership in Pakistan? how long will it take for us to cultivate and grow such leaders? how long will it take for our people to move beyond names and recognize individuals for what they do, rather then forgive all crimes just because they happen to carry a certain name? Whenever I raise these questions I cannot help but remember  Faiz’s poetry ” lazim hai keh hum bhi dekhaingay“.

  1. Lazim hai keh hum bhi dekhaingay.

    Poor Faiz died before those words came true. Let’s see how we fare.
