As I look around, the more I see the more devastated I become. What is this? Are my eyes and ears deceiving me? Are we still proficient to be called human?
With these questions in mind I turned off the television and pondered on what should be done for future. A country where the projection by the UN for its population is about 440 Million by 2050, the thought of resources and the current availability of them to the natives of Pakistan made me wonder in astonishment at what is to be done..?
Bomb blasts. Talibans. Sky-high prices. Underdevelopment. Militant operations in Swat. Unstable government. Taxes. Protests and mutiny. These things are now the daily routine of every Pakistani, not to mention the social-economic crisis in the country!
The problem with Pakistan is not its unstable government or that it is a nuclear power. Economic landscape is deteriorating fast with the crisis hitting countries worldwide and showed its effects in Pakistan too.The main problem is that who we call as leaders are merely rulers who know how to dictate and corrupt but not to lead and prosper. The difference between a ruler and a leader can be seen by comparing Quaid-e-Azam and Saddam Hussain. Pakistan was born as an orphan nation and till now (after Quaid’s death) she has been unable to find a sincere leader to drive her towards accomplishment and success!
The mystifying part is how can we overcome these drastic situations and start building the “Quaid’s Pakistan”? in my opinion, the best way to overcome these crisis is to empower the youth. We are the future of Pakistan and we should have a say in what is to be done! We have enough energy to bring about a resolution like Pakistan Resolution 1940 and enough enthusiasm to overcome any problem in the way. This gives rise to another chain of questions; how can I initiate the change? Who should I seek help from? How can I get the proper resources for the transformation of our nation?
I still meddle with the situation, wondering how I can play my part in this movement. A movement to re-create Pakistan. A movement to reform our nation. Still wondering, I again turn on my television to get the insight of the latest news…another period of gloominess and dejection!
