From childhood I have been hearing that the Pakistani nation is a developing nation. As I grew older, the “secret”, why Pakistanis continue to be developing nation was gradually revealed.
Outside of school, a disabled man used to beg in the name of Allah sitting in the sun. I often handed him my remaining lunch money. One day, my pickup was late and school was empty. I saw the beggar stood up, straightened his hands and feet, took off the beggar clothes (under which he had decent clothes) and went away in a good mood.
Once my mother asked me to get beef from the market. After cooking the meat I brought, she was furious. She told me that the meat was filled with water under pressure and after being cooked, it had reduced to half.
Later, I also found out that there are papaya seeds in black pepper. Instead of spices, wood debris is colored to form spices. Additives to milk include various harmful chemicals besides water. Even there is plastic in rice and pulses.
A large number of people were gathered around a person injured in an accident on the street. How much humanity we have, I envied. As I approached, I could see that the people were actually looking for mobile phones, credit cards, currency and other belongings of the injured, trying to get whatever they could before the ambulance arrives. There were others who were filming all this to go viral on social media while the injured was crying for help.
The mosque is the house of God, I heard from my childhood. But, I never could understand why the glasses, water containers, fans and even bulbs were chained or put in protective enclosures. Also, why the doors of the house of God are locked and only opened at the times of prayers?
I also came to know that doctors prescribe medicine and recommend laboratories which pay them commissions on sales. And they take oath for selflessly work for humanity.
Recycling is good, isn’t it? That’s why, we use it in the field of health and medicine. Disposable syringes, drips, even expired drugs are recycled for personal gains at the cost of health of the nation.
Public servants and politicians only start those projects through which they would get their cut. Law enforcement agencies support crimes in an organized way. They keep unofficial ledgers of all the illegal money they earn and distribute it from top to bottom very honestly.
Seeing all this, the devil must have wondered why he was thrown out of heaven.
