Second November 2016.

I am waiting breathlessly for the second November All my hopes are hooked on it.We, the common citizens can only do that! hope and pray.This seems to be our last chance in changing Pakistan for the better.

The current government is under a lot of pressure since it comes into power in 2013  They had numerous warnings and suggestions. I am amazed at the stupidity of these politicians that they just do not learn from their mistakes. They keep on repeating the same mistakes, again and again, Our Prime minister has the paranoia of Army.   He is lucky that Gen Raheel Shareef is not like our old Army chiefs who thought that it is their duty to punish politicians on their  corruption. Gen Raheel is giving them a lot of rope. I fear they may hang themselves with that rope.

Screen Shot 2012-12-06 at 2.15.06 PM Read the Afghans by Nadeem Akbar and see how , because of the mistakes of the ruling party, Afghanistan is ruined.  It is very easy to destroy a country but very difficult to built it up again.I hope second of September brings positive changes in my beloved country Pakistan.

Police Traning Centre Under Attack

A young man who is looking for a job . He gets his dream job and gets through training with success. He is on the top of the world. Happy that he has joined the job market. His parents are proud of him. Suddenly he gets a call to come back to the training center. There all his dreams, hopes and life is cruelly shattered. He is not alone in this tragedy, there are sixty  more like him.

I ask my fellow Pakistanis to put themselves in these sixty-one young men’s shoes and feel their pain and the pain of their parents and loved-ones. Just think where have we reach in this journey of building a nation? We were so proud to be a Pakistani, to have independence, to live our lives as we want. What went wrong? Why are we so full of hate? Why are we ready to throw away our freedom, our peace, our dreams? Don’t we know that we are going to die one day and will be standing in front of All Mighty giving the account of our deeds?

Please! I beseech you , change your attitude, have love  and compassion for your fellow human- beeing.Make Pakistan strong, for we have only one country. If we lose it , we will be like Syrians, Iraqis, or even like Kashmiris. Wake up.

Why we are always in trouble.

I agree that Pakistan is a young nation, but we are here since 1947. When are we going to mature.? when are we going to hear that we have achieved stability and prosperity. Our 45%  population is of young people; with a lot of potentials.

Western population is growing old, but we are young and vibrant. Why can’t we make use of this huge power and make this nation great?

We lack in leadership  All are leaders are interested in their own welfare. How to be rich over night? where is the next commission coming from? how can I rule the country like a despot?  We need a sincere leader, who could put Pakistan first and  his own needs second.

I wonder what is going to happen in the last week of October?  Why Institutions like our Supreme Court, Police force, and the Army are  only spectators. Why are they watching Pakistan in turmoil and not helping? Please remember when a country goes down , it is very difficult to bring it up again.

Look at Afghanistan and be warned. Afghanistan was beautiful and prosperous. The leaders played hell with it. For the last thirty years,people of Afghanistan are suffering, with no end in sight.

Two Nuclear Powers At Logger Head

Pakistan and India both are nuclear powers, they are densely  populated, and on top of it all, they are bitter animes .India, for a long time  is trying to suppress  the population of  Kashmir. The history of atrocities is very long. People are facing police brutality, killing of innocent people, rape of women and all sorts of abusive behavior from the army.

.Narinder Moody is not a good politician. He hates minorities and he wants Hindus to hold every powerful post.The atrocities are going on for such a long time that Kashmiris population is fed-up. There is a spontaneous uprising. Moody does not know how to control it. He very conveniently put the blame on Pakistan.

Pakistan  has an excellent Army, and Pakistanis are  proud people. They will not tolerate any mischief from India. We as a nation are  contented people. We have no ambitions for conquering our neighbouring territory. On the other hand India has never excepted Pakistan.

Moody is facing trouble in many states of India. His survival is at stake. He is lashing out at Pakistan in frustration. But there should be no doubt that if Indian Army crosses the border, it will be death and destruction for them. They tried, as they call it a surgical strike, and could  not cross back alive, Six were dead one captured.

My sincere advice to Mr. Moody is stop blaming Pakistan for your own failure, stop interfering, as we know how to defend our territory , It will be a sad day for you if you tried to engage us. You can huff and puff but you can do us no harm. So behave, show some maturity.

Now those young ladies are married for number of years, came to know their enviroment and settled down, but they are still very loyal members of the club , as this club  gave them confidence and strength when they needed most.

THE AGE OF INTERNET

I wrote my first book in 2008. I was over the moon with joy, thinking that my story is so grand that I will be a famous author in no time. I tried the conventional way of sending my work to big publishing houses. In those days they demanded written pages with self address envelope. I spend countless hours and pounds in sending those letters. Then the waiting period came. Three to six months  I patiently waited for the results. I was destined for a rude awakening and many heart wrenching rejections, with a polite word of “BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME”.

Then my husband suggested that I should self publish my work. I did that. As far as the book printing and cover and getting ISBN’ Number it went well. But I had no marketing skills.My book was as if, it was in a dark room  where no one comes. The results were as expected , No sales.

Then some one suggested internet marketing. and I had a little movement in sales. So thank God for the Age of Internet I was able to go on Facebook, Linkedin and e-mails.  I manage to sell a few thousand.Screen Shot 2012-12-06 at 2.15.06 PM ISBN: 9781434319326
