The amount of frustration that the people of Pakistan face every day is a story that is evident on every ones face.. but when people still display hope amidst all this turmoil then it is truly spectacular.
My structure teacher’s desperation, frustration was more than evident when instead of starting with the syllabus of the new semester he talked and talked about the tragedy that had hit home, but had yet to demolish his hope in this county.
He is no doubt a learned man, having worked in London, Nigeria, and Brunei-ul-Islam where he is credited with building a new construction material . He had shifted back to Pakistan and had wanted to work here. and maybe he had put his entire retirement money into this dream. He had started a new business, and had bought a plot in Ahsanabad, located near Gulshan-e-Maymar, at Super Highway.
He is the recent victim of the land grabbing mafia that is not only strong in the city but also has its own political wings, which do everything to support this illegal business and to give them protection.
This land is apparently the target of two of the most popular, rival parties of Sindh but it is nice to know that they have agreed at something and are working together. The plots right now are being sold at Rs. 2,000,00 (roughly $2500), originally sold at Rs. 20,000,00 (almost $25000).
what was worse that how people have become so immune to those stories that it doesn’t matter to them that one man’s life is being destroyed. None of the students/my class fellows were even touched by his tragedy and suffering and instead he was faced with ridicule, and jokes about his condition.
Are we really so immune to these stories that they dont matter to us or is it that we just dont care? Do we all hope to get an american visa and run out of teh country and therefore its problems dont bother us anymore? Does this country really has a future left?????
