Pakistan ! A point to ponder!
I suggest there should be an end to the stories 'apparelled in celestial delight' which are not now as they have been of yore. We need to have a clear understanding of the nature of our current situation as an after-math of the 1971 debacle. now a sincere effort is required, not only to devise, but to implement policies which can practically remove suspicion and mistrust which has crept into the mind of people. The politicians, military leadership bureaucrats, businessmen, teachers all share this responsibility. Unfortunately, we all have failed to deliver as individual members of the nation. let us not repeat mistakes of the past. Let us not allow the selfish quarters capitalize on our blunders. Errors, if not timely checked, will keep on multiplying; emotions will keep on rising till it may be too late to prevent another debacle of a similar or even worse nature. Let us remember that we are capable as a nation to overcome all difficulties and no issue is so great as to be insurmountable in the last analysis. What we need today is a clear understanding of our individual and collective mission. we all have to ponder upon this simple fact; a mission which is not impossible.
" In the world's broad field of battle.
In the bivouac of life.
Be not like dumb, driven cattle!
Be a hero in the strife! "
