Back scratching

It's hot these days and I've got slight prickly heat. Others are also talking about "you scratch my back, I scratch yours."

Insane president?

Yup! Long term psychiatric problems are a big plus for the job of PoP (President of Pakistan).

Hadith

"Agreements are not Hadith or Quran" says Asif Ali Bhutto Zardari. However, I remind him the characteristics of a munafiq.
And why is it that our Prime Minister needs an advisor on Religious Affairs? I thought he was a "Syed" himself. Oh, I guess he's one of those Syeds who are Syed for a different reason.

Pour some milk in that pond

Story credit of a certain magazine that I saw lying in the pantry in our department.
Once upon a time, long long ago, there was a king. I'm sure he had a queen and princes and princesses, too, but that's not the point. He built a pond at the center of the city and ordered his people to all come and pour a glass of milk in that pond each night. Now, there either was no electricity around at that time, or the city was on the WAPDA grid, so when you went to the pond at night, you couldnt see a thing. Anyway, the order was given. Next morning, the king ordered his interior minister to go and see the pond, and told him, "I assure you, you will see nothing but water in the pond." Sure enough, when the minister got to the pond, there was nothing but water in it. Not a drop of milk. Everyone thought someone else would pour milk in it. Everyone thought if they poured water in the pond, it wouldnt make a difference. Hell, they thought if they poured milk in the pond, it wouldnt make a difference either.
That's how we are today. We are convinced that if I do the right thing, what good will it do. It wouldnt change a thing. It wouldnt make a difference. But I say to myself before I say to you, pour some milk into that pond.

Losing ground

In kay to pairon k neechay say zameen chalee gaee. Here are some actual party principles and mnifestos.
PML-Q: Musharraf, Musharraf, Musharraf....... Oops, no more.
PPP: Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Buhtto gave his life for ...., Shaheed Benazir Bhutto gave her life for ..... Let's change the names of airports, hospitals, roads. Hell, let's name each town in the country after her. What the hell, let's name the country Benazir. That's sure to bring prosperity to the country. If it doesnt, well, we'll find something else to rename, or perhaps some other shaheed. Who's next?

Is that true?

No Chouhdry sahib, he hasnt proven to be a true Pakistani. He has proven to be, perhaps, a true Turk. True Pakistanis never leave the seat of power willingly.

Are you kidding me?

"Ethically wrong" to continue? What the hell is that? Yeah, you better run because now there's no one to protect your wrong doings, and you're not retired from the forces.

Sign it, baby!

Sign this now!

Profit

A few days ago Shell announced dividends to its share holders that were 625% higher than last time. Can you imagine that? How much profit they are making. And that cant be "trickled down" to us? Oil prices are declining worldwide and yet we suffer and this happens.

Warning

Mark my words! With that Honda City, Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Santro, or Cultus or whatever that you bought on financing/lease, and that credit card that you've been spending off, and that trend increasing in popularity, the day is not far when this will be commonplace for us. But you will not quit, you will not heed this warning or any other.

Smart

The imposition of emergency last year was understamped by the COAS. Now, I reckon you cant challenge that in a civil court, because it wasnt an act of the PoP. Military personnel are above civilian law.

Deja Vu?

They are at it again! Unlike the last extraditee, I'm sure this one wouldnt be dumped in Saudi Arabia, for sure, if at all, that is.

Take 'em away boys

We're at it again! Who's responsible for countering smuggling? If no one is, I'm afraid we'd be sitting out on the streets soon because everything would be smuggled to Afghanistan.
