“When soldiers cry” by Amina Elahi

In the space of a couple of hours we saw our trucks efficiently disposed of and realized that the swiftest method of providing relief was through the army

    Atlast something in defence of our defence forces who are doing a commendable job despite all the difficulties. Lets focus on the positive efforts being made rather than the negatives.

    Speaking of iftaris – which leads to gossip over country and general current afairs. I went to DHA at my uncle’s last nite. My cousin who happens to be a pilot has just commented yesterday on the dining table: Army is doing a marvelous job. All the airports are overloaded. Air traffic is running way over the recommended capacity. Carrying a camera to the effected area is different and carrying whole truck with stuff is different. Media is just over-exploiting! There couldn’t be any better option to do the job done swifter than the army.

    Hi Asma. Its immature thinking. They use it as a tool to flare things up when they can’t do any good on their own. As I said once – criticism is the world’s easiest thing to do.

    Anyhow, I have recently got a report from LUMS. This impartial/unprejudiced report is an On-site inspection done by LUMS (Lahore University of Management Sciences). They did a thorough survey of the affected areas and they have come up with a conclusion that ARMY guys are most appropriate, well organized and totally dependable to deliver goods to the areas. The report was published by: Dr. Nasir Afghan (Faculty) with other guys from LUMS. They have further listed down the urgently needed items and the conclusions at the end. If someone needs that report you can email me directly at omeropee@yahoo.com.

    Lets be positive – lets not just be constructive, lets do something constructive too!
