It’s been long time that I’ve been blogging, and now I’m a fluent blogger, though not an expert. Since I started blogging, I wanted to bring something positive out of my efforts. Well, I don’t know whether I succeeded or not, but a little did I know, I explored many avenues. And, today, it’s a great pleasure announcing Pro Pakistan.
Well, Pro Pakistan is a platform I joined hands with some fellow bloggers including well know M Junaid Khan. It’s not my blog, not Junaid’s blog at all, but It’s a blog of all those who love to read, write and do something practical for Pakistan. You all are cordially invited to participate there by having your say on core issues, challenges and problems faced by the Nation within territory and round the world.
Pro Pakistan will speak your words, truly yours! It’s your voice! We all are connected together, no matter you are in Chaman or in Karachi, USA or UAE. If you’re a Pakistani, and want to have your say, be a part of Pro Pakistan. And even if you are non Pakistani, and want to say something to us, you’re most welcomed!

It was yesterday morning when I signed in my MSN messenger and the pop up window directed me towards a slide show. It was eleven most influential women of the world in the year 2007. Benazir Bhutto was the second most influential woman after Hillary Clinton, and she was really so, in fact she was more than that, I think, as circumstances for both the ladies were quite different including social and political arena. I thought that time to blog about the slide in the evening, but the sad event of Benazir’s assassination and the situation in the city didn’t let me do so.
I still m’ sitting with no words to write, but a little googling helped me to come up with a pictorial overview of Benazir’s life span. Here it is:
Young Benazir with her mother Begum Nusrat Bhutto
Benazir in sweet teens
The Intelligent Youth
Enters into Pakistani Politics
Making the solid decisions
The pure Asian Bride
And then towards a final journey

Development of a nation does depend on the efforts of its people but the part of efforts by leaders weighs more. Was just exploring the history of Norway and found that the country is not that old, but the development shows quite good signs. If you ever happen to visit Oslo or any other part of the country or just read about it from authentic sources like CIA world fact book and the Economist etc, you’ll feel the difference. It just started developing after Second World War.
Later when I tried relating such development with ours, I really couldn’t understand what exactly we’re lacking. We have resources, both natural and human, and financial resources have also not been a matter as we’d got enough amounts from World Bank and IMF. So what exactly was the reason that we’ve not developed like European or some other countries? Certainly it was leadership! Is it something else?
Don’t know why, but I’m of the opinion that ‘Goo Leaders Make a Good Nation’, and we lacked such, so just don’t want to give another chance to same old faces.
