Pakistan in 3008-

March 10, 2009

One of my very good friend sent me this email a while back. First time I read it I couldnt stop laughing and the second time I read it I was of the thought that what if we get there ? .

The “Finish line”. Are we capable enough to make the following possible? Read the following and share your thoughts. Thanks

Pakistan In 3008
 
Two Top American Executives at IBM, USA

Alex: Hi John. You didn’t come to work yesterday
 
John: Yeah. I was at the Pakistani Embassy trying to get my visa.
 
Alex: Oh, really? What happened? I’ve heard that these days they have
become very strict.
 
John: Yeah, but I managed to get it.
 
Alex: How long did it take to get it stamped?
 
John: Man, it was a long queue. Bill Gates was waiting in front of me
and they really gave him a hard time. The poor guy even brought the
property papers for his house in Seattle to show them that he will
return to USA. I went there at 4:00 a.m. to get in the queue and there
were tons of people ahead of me.
 
Alex: Really? In Pakistan, at the US Embassy it only takes an hour to get visa for U.S.


John: Yeah! But that’s because no one in Pakistan would want to come to
USA, except Americans who have taken Pakistani nationality and want to
bring their kids here.
 
Alex: So, when are you leaving?
 
John: As soon as I get my tickets from the company in Pakistan. I’m so
excited. I will be getting a chance to finally fly with the world’s
fastest growing airline, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA). Sort of
dream come true, you know.
 
Alex: How long are you planning to stay in Pakistan?
 
John: What do you mean “how long”? I will try and settle in Pakistan. My
company has promised me that they will process my Green Book as soon as
possible.
 
Alex: Really? Man, you’re a lucky one. It’s very difficult to get the
Green Book in Pakistan. Last year my cousin and his family went there on
a tourist visa and they’re not coming back now.
 
John: Yeah. That’s why I’m planning on marrying a Pakistani girl there
and then sponsoring my parents and my brother and sister from New York
to Pakistan.
 
Alex: But I hear you can find lots of good American girls in Karachi and
Lahore.
 
John: Yeah, but I prefer Pakistani girls. They are so much more superior
to our girls, and what great brunette complexion they have!
Alex: What city are you going to?
 
John: Karachi. The company has an office in downtown Saddar. Yeah, the
salary is good but the cost of living is quite high because of all the
people flocking to this high-tech Mecca.
 
Alex: I hear the exchange rate is now $100 to a Rupee! That’s just too
much. What about Quetta and Peshawar? What are they like?
 
John: No idea. But they are cheaper than Karachi, which is the world’s
headquarters for information technology now.
 
Alex: I hear the quality of life in Pakistan is incredible.
 
John: Yeah, man. You can buy a BMW for Rs.30,000, and a Mercedes for
less than Rs.45,000. But my dream is to purchase a Suzuki Turbo FX-800
which costs roughly Rs.90,000. But what a sweet design, great curves,
and it purrs to the touch.
 
Alex: By the way, which company are you gonna work for?
 
John: Haji Jalal Puttarjee & Bros. Technologies, a pure Pakistani
conglomerate specializing in embedded software.
 
Alex: Man, you’re so lucky to work for a pure Pakistani company. They
are really intelligent and unlike any American body shops that have
opened their fly-by-night outfits in Pakistan. The Pakistani companies
pay you even when you’re on the bench. My friend, Paul Allen, used his
bench time to visit the Makran Coast, the most gorgeous resort in
Pakistan, I hear.
 
John: Yeah, man, you’re right. I hope the US learns something from them
and follows in their footsteps. It seems all we do is borrow more and
more money from the Askari Bank.
 
Alex: How are you going to cope with their language?
 
John: I’ve been learning Urdu since my school days. I always dreamed
that one day I’ll head for Pakistan ever since my uncle bought me that
T-Shirt from Islamia College. At the Consulate they tested my
proficiency in Urdu and were quite impressed by my score in TOUFL (Test
of Urdu as a Foreign Language).
 
Alex: Boy! You’re so damn lucky.
John: Yeah. I’ll be travelling in the world’s fastest train, Tezgam,
I’ll be visiting the world’s largest theme park in Changa Manga, and
I’ll be visiting the famous Lollywood where I might meet the sons and
daughters of movie legends like Nadeem, Sultan Rahi, Anjuman, Reema and
the gorgeous of all, Madam Babra Sharif.
 
Alex: You know, the Pakistani President is scheduled to visit USA next
year and I hear that he may increase the number of employment visas.
 
John: That’s very true. Last month, their Labour Minister, Naswar Khan
Pakhtoon, visited the White House and donated Rs.20,000 for the
re-development of the World Trade Centre at Silicon Valley, and has
promised more if we follow the models of the fast developing high-tech
cities, Gujranwalla and Raiwind. Bill Gates was lucky to have a chance
to meet him. Very lucky person.
 
Alex: Will you be calling on Dave? I hear that he has made it big there
and has a beautiful house on the Lyari River in Karachi.
 
John: Yeah, I’ll be meeting him.
 
Alex: Anyway, nice chatting to you, John. Good luck, you lucky guy.
 
John: Yeah, and the same to you,
 
Alex. By the way, don’t ever go to the Pakistani Consulate in
shalwar-kameez because they will think you’re too Pakistanised and may
doubt that you will ever come back, and your application will be
rejected. And yes, don’t forget to say to the Visa Officer politely:
“As’salam-o-Alaikum, aap kaisay hain?” It will show them you’re a
cultured person.
 
See what u think of this people…..Dont forget to say INSHALLAH after
dis..!!!

Early morning knock out!

December 24, 2008

intro11

This morning I woke up in my usual good moods and got involved in my usual stuff of bugging my wife, leaving the tap open and getting told off and finally going into my son’s room to say morning to him (my son is 13 months old..). Now as you dont know about my son and his usual naughty epsiodes I will fill you in. He is 13 months but nearly crawls out of his cot everyday, he climbs on sofa’s to get to the window so that he can adore the beauties on the road, he is a fan of older women (I am ok as long as he doesnt adore men! lol) etc etc all in all he is always upto onething or another. Anyway, few days back my son fractured his left wrist due to excessive play and his high speed crawling.
This morning when I went into his room to have chat him, his mom followed me (who happes to be my beloved wife) also walked in complaining to my son that I have yet again left the tap open. My son got very excited looking at me (or he was excited that his plan was about to work) and welcomed me with open arms and I as I took him into my arms he rammed his pot onto my head giving me a completely 5 sec knockout…lol. As I recovered I could hear him and his mom  laughing their heads off and I was trying to recover the memories which fell out of my ear. To be very honest, I can still feel the bump on my head and it does hurt a little. Lol

I never thought it could hit me this hard. So what does this mean?  mom and son have already paired up against innocent me ? does it mean that my son hates to see me early morning because I take him out from his cosy cot and take him into my skinny arms ? or was he just testing the knock out effects ?

All this remains unanswered!

27th December “A Public Holiday”

December 23, 2008

Fireworks of OBLITERATION

Fireworks of OBLITERATION

Shocking Shocking Shocking!!!!

 

 

Pakistan has become a nation which is struggling economically, politically,  where poor is becoming poorer, where stock exchange have nearly collapsed and the governemtn instead of working towards reforms of all the important sector has annouced a public
holiday on the 27th of December.

From now on 27th of December will be celebrated as “Pakistan’s Corruption day”.

All over the world due to economic down turn governments, corporate firms etc are trying to have more days at work instead of having days  of and our struggling nations deomcratically elected government of feudals with an un elected president has made yet another blunder and taken another stupid decision of declaring 27th December a public holiday. What will the holiday be used for? Stonning buses, burning tyres, a few dead bodies on the road and another terror headline all over the newspapers.

Is this goverment here for public and country reforms or is it just doing BHUTTO reforms?

Pakistan needs it-
