Women’s Day – where are we ACTUALLY standing??

8th March is celebrated worldwide as International Women’s Day – It’s history dates back to 1910 when this day was first celebrated for this very cause – Celebrating Women … Celebrating Women’s rights and what not.

Pakistani Women 1

What will happen today (and for past few days and few days to come) – unlimited walks , marches, parades to let the world know THAT WE REALY CARE ABOUT THIS FAIRER SEX … many women clad in diamonds and chic wear would address to many women of their status and class signifying that we are doing a lot already and a lot is needed to be done for the poor woman living in a state of misery in Pakistan – so lets wake up and do this and that …. BUT what really it’ll bring??

Pakistani Women 2

NOTHING – is the answer.

This fashion will grow and progress I the same manner today and in the days to come, our generations will witness the same miserable fashions … the khabarnamas today would be filled with president sahib going there and pm sahib going there (our dear railway minister would be going somewhere too).

Our Pakistani Men would keep on harassing women whenever they’ll get a chance … refer to this post too in KMB …

So here goes another 8th march —- and we are still standing in VOID …. !

    While the responsibility of current unacceptable attitude of Paki men towards women solely lies with men, the society won’t change until mother start inculcating values of respect for women to their sons; until sisters will tell brothers that they should be as protective of other women as they are for them.

    My mother will have simply killed me if I had shown a littlest of disrespect to a woman, any woman, poor or rich, friend or enemy.

    It might give you some pleasure to know that both Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Mumbai are women. This is the third woman Mayor of the city.

    The society that does not look up to women perishes.

    Salam/Hola!!

    Any body know of a train service from Karachi to Rawalpindi?

    How often does this train run?

    Where can I find this information?

    I’m travelling from London to Karachi, but looking to head home to my place of birth, Gujarkhan on a budget.

    If anyone can help, please…PLEASE…aap ka bahauth shukria…

    I’m looking to take a month off at the start of May to discover the wonders and the mystique of such a colourful homeland and things that aren’t so, I want to feel that that explosion on the senses…
