Not much has changed since last year; similar discontentment in another damp summer. Only this time, I see my boys getting familiarised with the first slogans of patriotism holding their foremost symbols of independence. But while they wave their five rupee flags saying Pakistan Zindabad animatedly, they are still unable to see the despondency in the eyes of those who are drudging in heat to earn those five rupees.
For me, Pakistan will be independent when the boys like above will learn to ask questions. Question like why His Bounteous Highness has presented a handsome amount of 7.5 million to his entertainers for pleasing him (and his court) on the night of celebrating Independence?
Long live Pakistan.
