I Wanna Make Fraaandship With Ya…

azizrice.jpgIslamabad is supposed to be a city home to upper echelons of power in Pakistan. Where foreign dignitaries visit and often have meetings with the higher ups. We living here are proud of that fact to be the center of all the happenings. We like to be center to all attention. But every once in a while something comes up that really can’t help us get baffled or leave us in bemusement. Some goof up by the big daddys. Like the latest update of our “stud” Prime Minister’s emotional fling by none less than Condi Rice. I mean can you imagine it appears even the Prime Minister here, seems to need some serious lessons on pick up lines. Come on Shaukee I know you can do better than this.

Read on for the whole account

Shaukee’s charm failed to work its magic on US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, according to a new biography of her. The book, titled Twice as Good: Condoleezza Rice and Her Path to Power. describes in excruciating detail how Shaukat Aziz allegedly tried to impress Rice when she visited South Asia in March 2005.

Mr Aziz “tried this Savile Row-suited gigolo kind of charm: ‘Pakistan is a country of rich traditions,’ staring in (Dr Rice’s) eyes,” the biography’s author Marcus Mabry writes, citing participants at the meeting.

“When Rice sat down with Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz, who fancied himself as a ladies’ man, Aziz puffed himself up and held forth in what he obviously thought was his seductive baritone,” the book claims.

“He bragged – to Western diplomats, no less – that he could conquer any woman in two minutes,” writes Mabry

Mr Aziz, who is married with three children, was out of luck, according to the book.

“There was this test of wills where he was trying to use all his charms on her as a woman, and she just basically stared him down, By the end of the meeting, he was babbling. The Pakistanis were shifting uncomfortably. And his voice visibly changed.”.

Shifting uncomfortably, imagine the sight!

Government spokesmen were not immediately available for comment. They usually aren’t at such debacles.

All hands down, atleast he tried. Better luck next time Shaukee!!

    It’s better that this blog remains about Islamabad and not a platform to vent out personal grudges or transforming political opinions.Can you believe such crap? may be a possibility in Robert Ludlum’s novels.International diplomacy is a serious business and not vanity fair.And why do people look for follies by rich and famous?.Perhaps may be to give a boost to the pigmies hidden inside each of us.The days of gora sahabs were wrapped up decades ago and no longer we are the humble subjects.Our leaders act as responsible heads of democratic republic and not their most obedient servents or to cast spells on CHARMING ladies.I strongly protest for this nonsense against our Gentleman PM Shaukat Aziz.
    This is just cheap sensationalism for selling the book and that’s all.

    I think condi is flattering herself. From which angle does she think she is attractive.

    @Chuckle. I am sorry to have hurt your feelings but I completely disagree with your premise that discussing about the PM is not part of this blog. If you did not notice, Islamabad is the Capital of Pakistan, and that’s something that makes it different from the rest of the cities, that we can discuss stuff going on in the so called “Capitol Hill” and all those who have a role to play here. This is the place from where the country is being run, so please crawl out of dogma and see beyond the mundane.

    As for Shaukee, just ease up a bit and enjoy a little joke about the bigger than life prince charming. There is nothing too personal about it and I am sure he would also be having a good laugh out of it.

    I think you must have heard the famous quotation “Great minds discuss “movies” and only small minds discuss people or persons” :-)

    Interesting..if the account is correct…

    “he could conquer any woman in two minutes”

    And exactly how many has he “conquered” so far..? Does his wife know? Hope she is not in the conquering business too..

    Do you remember his flirts with Anjelina Jolie. For heaven’s sake why our prime minister and president both had to meet with a rather average actress and not once but as many times as she came to Pakistan. And this guy shaukat also showed him his prime minestral gardens ( perhaps fulfiling a hidden desire to have a date with her in the Jinnah Gardens of Lahore). (She must be thinking, what a jerk to live in this palace, after seeing the plight of kids around peshawar.
