    i guess i have seen this place……if i remember correctly, when fasee sue to take his bike for Looong looong repairs, so while killign time he used to raom around for hours…and use to stay stuned by the courage or helplessness of those that moved around there

  2. fasee on April 8th, 2009 @ 3:40 pm

    and i said courrage…coz i saw flairs of humanity much more than any of us educated ones…..once fasee;s phatphati crashed in a pit at night 1:00 i guess….fasee was dis oriented for a while…all he saw was that people came and talked bout it…noone was there to help me out… was only when some poor pathans came, and all six went down there and pushed my phatphati out….and fasee was speechless, that those who i usualy disise are the ones with some insaniyaat left in them….and dat time fasee didnt had any cash to give them for gratituted, he jsut said thanks.

    One thing to note that the children are fully clothed, clean and look healthy. Though its a slum but the houses are made of cement blocks unlike the countries in our vicinity.

    Sure not every body is lucky enough to be borned with the golden spoon even in rich countries. No doubt, its the states responsibility to provide opportunities to its citizens to better their lives. These opportunities come foremost with a leaderships desire to serve, ensure peace, providing incentives to build and the populace responding with hard work. On the other hand opportunities dwindle where there is chaos, mayhem, instability and corruption.

    By the way all the names that you have mentioned are of Bhutto pedigree. What you guys have against them? despite all their short comings haven’t the Bhutto’s paid with their blood, who else can boast that. Nothing is stopping you to mention some other big shot’s children e.g. Sharif’s, Jatoi’s, Khar’s, Chaudhry’s numerous seth’s and wealthy doctors. Or is there an agenda?

    Also, there are many who care. Who put there lives on line for the sake of the children, just like the three brave women who were shot to death near Mansehra, their crime, trying to convince parents to send their children to school.

    @fasee sab….sir. I enjoy word puzzles and games very much… also helps me understand the unwritten British constitution….also me and my collins pocket gem dictionary has been at the service of family for years and years…decades….first It was my elder brother he was very good at cross words and jumbles…he got a job and married and left…than it was my little sister she is not very smart but unbelievably good with word puzzles…got married and left….then papa started doing the word puzzles in the daily dawn after his superannuation…..he would have got married and left but he used to take more time doing the puzzles…even with my help and assistance…and died due to renal failure twenty years later….I used to get up early and check the puzzles before he did….every day….so that when ever he calls me I know the answer in advance….he was so impressed with me who was a very hard to impress man.
    personally I believe that I know all the f and L words in the oxford english dictionary without the f and L and also if you miss two letters in a six letter or more word i’ll know what you mean…
    iam very grateful to you for these jumbles…afterall aap iss recession main khella rahey ho….woh bhi free

    @ fasee and wasiq

    KD suddenly feels he is in the wrong sort of company but grateful that you still tolerate him.
    First Fasee put him to shame by his mutitasking prowes and now Wasiq with his cross word skills. KD is thinking of going back to IMB to be with the likes of him :-)

  11. kabirdas on April 10th, 2009 @ 3:10 pm

    Sorry forgot to mention KD when young used to be very good at Karam or is it Caram Board. Once he put all the ‘gotis’ in various pockets in one turn. I am not kidding. It is true. Multitasking and cross word puzzles are too demanding and not KD’s glass of beer.

    @ kaami
    " One thing to note that the children are fully clothed, clean and look healthy."

    It is because they are the children of a lesser God. I have seen the children of No God in a real pathetic state living in a basti with the fancy name of ‘French Colony’ right in the middle of Islamabad sector F-7 which is generally referred to as VIP sector by the estate agents.

    Kaami I don’t really know who to blame and who not to blame for all this. Although I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth and came up through lot of hard work and LUCK still I feel guilty for my attitude of ‘I am alright Jack.’

  13. fasee on April 10th, 2009 @ 3:37 pm

    @ KD

    "It is because they are the children of a lesser God"

    and i was under the impression, that the children of the highest god were the ones with the least clothes on them, if any at all

    fasee stands soooo confused.

  14. yahudi4 on April 10th, 2009 @ 8:54 pm

    It is not very clear from the picture if that thing is narrow or wide…it cannot be a railroad track…than what it actually is…?

  15. بستنی (wasiq) on April 10th, 2009 @ 9:09 pm

    KD is thinking of going back to IMB to be with the likes of him :-)

    @KD sarkar…sir what does IMB stands for….Isl met blogs or Inferior military boards…….lol
    PS: please don’t take it personally…let the active ones take it…lol

  16. kaami on April 10th, 2009 @ 10:23 pm

    @kabirdas – That exactly is the point, in this same country there are places where people dont get paid for their labour, they have no belongings and no place to call home. They are indeed children of no God.

    Like you my dad is also a self made man from a small town, the British rule afforded him an opportunity to get education and rest was his hardwork and dedication. But the state did its job, i.e. provide opportunity.

    Thats how you judge failure and success of a state. However, even this criteria is a far cry when a state is rapidly loosing its writ. No writ no state, no question of success or failure.

  17. kaami on April 10th, 2009 @ 10:38 pm

    @kabirdas – The irony is Poverty Reduction is a subject in which brilliant Pakistanis have shown the way to the world. Great unsung heroes like Akhter Hameed Khan and his disciples namely Mohammad Yonus of Gramine Bank (Bangladesh) , Tasneem Ahmed Siddiqui of Khuda ki Basti and the care takers of the Orangi pilot Project have provided a successful models which are being replicated throughout the world but unfortunately, not in the country that invented it.

    The key factor in fighting poverty is ownership. If you give the poor ownership of a peace of land, a small business or share that ownership with the whole community, good things start happening. Sadly, giving owner ship of even wasted govt land to the poor is a big issue in our society.

  18. kabirdas on April 10th, 2009 @ 11:26 pm

    @ Kaami

    Provide ‘opportunity’ and ‘ownership’ are key words and make lot of sense. However, I think to be able to achieve that we should, as a first step, concentrate on population control. Start with the population control and the rest will follow, if not automatically at least easily. What do you say to that ??

  19. fasee on April 11th, 2009 @ 10:35 am

    @ KD & Kami

    sir self made tu ahem ahem, izaat ma’ab mr afsee saab lahore walay , bhi hain….

    but is pe mujhay wo baat yaad a gai….once munay ka abba na kaha tum itnay nalaik hu, grow hi nai kertay….ik main tha dukan pe "chotay" ki job say start kiya, aur aaj teen dukano ka malik hoon.

    munaa bola, dad ab wo zamana giya, aaj kaal loog hisab kitab rakhtay hain.

    so fasee is stuck in bad times…:(

  20. kaami on April 13th, 2009 @ 6:56 pm

    @kabirdas in my humble opinion the chain goes like this:

    Ownership – Opportunity – Poverty Alleviation – Education – Awareness -Population Control.

    If you have less family members earning more then you eliminate the need for more earning less. However, this is not rocket science anymore, there are successful models around the world, even in the famine stricken deserts of Africa. All that is required is political will, peace and a desire to build, commodities that are in short supply in our country.

    The courageous ones,those who defy the odds and try to make a difference find themselves in the cross hairs of local bandits, religous biggots and the landed power base. No doubt that the people have the potential, e.g. the Kashmir Earthquake but the Empire always strikes back.

  21. fasee on April 14th, 2009 @ 12:57 pm

    @ kami.

    in my opinion chain is much simpler…its sats with us and ends and medical stofre where we cna buy rubber, at 3 k apack ya 6 ka pack….and rpesto…your over population problem solvd….

    ye elivation walivation ka na panay pass tim eai na apnay ko samjh ati hai……all my experince in managment is….the more simpler it is the more chances there are for it to succeed.

    or better…try the china policy…..ik ke baad nalka hi kaat do
