    This picture not only represents a bleak future for our young, but also reminds us of failed past policies of our govts.
    Most of these children we find going through our trash every day belong to Afghan refugees, who are born here, raised here but have no respect of an average citizen, or any try from adminstration to give them their human rights. They have become a label of despair and failure for our nation.

    This picture, however bleak it may be, strengthens my resolve to make Pakistan a welfare state. Or at least do my part in taking it toward that.

    It is the reason I still support Lawyer’s movement…

    Riyasat ho apni Maan kay Jaisee (poem by A. Ahsan)

    I request all Pakistanis to please rise above party politics and support lawyers movement as it might be our only hope…

    Wow that’s a new one. To change the destiny of the nation you are advocating support for the “Lawyers Movement”. The very movement that has already brought about untold chaos and misery to this land.
    This amazing feat was achieved at a time when the country was all set to leap ahead and tackle the problems of growth and inflation due to relative financial well being of its populace. All that lawyers movement has achieved thus far is making way for the return of the two biggest thieves that this nation has produced, flight of capital, talent and an endless downward spiral for all. If this movement continues this way then we in the near future might see bankruptcy lawyers picking on what’s left of this country.

    My maternal grandfather was an industrialist who lost everything and spent his last days in litigation, making rounds of various esteemed courts of Pakistan. The one advice that he gave me was, “Kabhee waqeeloun ke chakkar mein na perna, kahein ke nahein raho ge” and I keep that advice very close to my heart.

    Coming to the photograph.. This is not an uncommon scene in a typical third world country. But in the recent past countries like Malaysia, China, Brazil, Mexico and even India has shown that with a lot of hard work and focus on building something, a nation can change its fortune in little over a decade or, it can go down the drain choosing the path of chaos, instability and political upheaval.
