Ever noticed that microphone icon on Google search engine? The newer versions of Google Chrome now include an impressive speech recognition engine. You can speak instead of typing into any text box that contains this microphone and the search engine will open up the world of information for you.
This is just a tiny example of innovation which I felt like sharing with readers.
On the other hand Youtube is still banned in Pakistan and God forbid if more mischief is spread by some miscreant even in Congo there is a good chance of blocking whole internet facility in Pakistan as well.
Followed by comparatively peaceful Ashura with “only” two bomb blasts, I got a chance to check news channels hoping to have some good news but what I watched was a young man hanging on the 8th floor of tall Statelife building in Karachi witnessed by hundreds of excited shop keepers and passerby. The whole event had been covered Live by almost all Tv channels.
After about 8 minutes the most awaited moment came and the young boy perceived as a stunt man fell from the building and lost his life.
Scores of people witnessed the ‘event’ on sight but unfortunately nobody attempted to help him. The famous Zainab market shopkeepers could not come up with the idea to pile up clothes and blankets to provide any possible support to the falling guy. Nor any commandos or police were sent to break 9th floor window to pull up the unfortunate boy.
Expecting any support from fire snorkels was indeed out of question since despite keeping all necessary equipment the citizens of metropolitan city should keep their expectations low from Government institutions.
The politicians often call Pakistan a failing state but in reality it has now become a failed state.
I remember the former US intelligence director only threatened to send Pakistan back in Stone Age but we Pakistanis honored his words and did it by ourselves. The country with frequent power cuts, Gas shortages, and unavailability of clean water and with having no implementation rules and regulations is in the state of chaos. It’s now the matter of survival of the fittest. If you are a big shot accompanied by several security guards you are safe else wait to get stuck in a situation.
However the blame cannot only be shifted to the Government since the people of Pakistan are equally contributing their share to destroy this nation. A so called democratic Pakistan holds no civility – violating laws, fighting over petty issues is considered as our pride.
India, Iran, China, Afghanistan, no borders are safe from us. We rather putting our house in order are keener to play the role of custodians of Islam. Be it Palestine, Muslims of Burma, Somalia, Afghanistan or China the people of this unfortunate nation are hell bent on fixing the conditions of Muslims across the world and that too with no genuine contribution towards civilization.
Common characteristics of a failing state include a central government is so weak that it has little practical control over much of its territory; non-provision of public services; widespread corruption and criminality; refugees and involuntary movement of populations, and sharp economic decline. Unfortunately, the land of pure is comprised by all these characteristics thus can safely be included in the index of failed state.
To fix up this nation is now no more a question to ponder.
The nation where Hindus are forced to bury dead bodies has its own set of rules. In next coming years we are not preparing for progressive Pakistan but getting ourselves ready to face the ideal failed nation.
