Jeo or Jeenay do

One of the reasons why our protests hardly make any difference is we are all selfish. I never saw these Petrol Pump walas protesting for awaam who deserve it more but now that their commission was cut, they are protesting.

    This is actually translated to ‘khao aur khanay do’.

    Why should they protest for Awaam, are we handicapped or something? Why don’t we come to street ourselves? We are all like corpses, we don’t feel anything anymore, be it fuel prices, bus fares, Utility expenses, high goods prices (tomatoes Rs.70/Kg :s). We never protest, looks like our tolerance meter has exploded or something.Be it trffic jams, bridge collapses. We forget everything in the matter of days.

    Common people can voice their demands via elected representatives in the government or they can organise a group like these guys and post a banner across their localities.

    BTW what are they protesting for and to whom?

    Neena you seem to be the better one from the lot! The last time I checked, I found two people make more sense than anyone else that were SHAHIDNUSA and ARIFA. Both them are usually busy so it’s nice to have sane people like you around!

    I agree with the author here. They are protesting for petrol commissions and do not worry about awam in general. Duh uh!

    I am a business man and trust me, my money is NOT the only thing that I am always concerned about. There are ethics, morals and understanding of being a part of the society you live in. What you give today might come back and pucnh you in your face tomorrow. Tariq, if THAT’s how you are planning to do business, like ever… may I tell you to NOT!
