Our National Character On Display
I had a chance to take a group of fifty odd hikers into the Margallas this Sunday, mostly expats and there we had our national character on display everywhere. I was shocked to see some recent developments on the Pir Sohwa road leading to Damne-Koh. As we already know that CDA has gone miles in recent years to restore the scenic beauty of Islamabad, with dozens of new parks, new roads, and sign boards. The paint used on these sign boards is extremely expensive, as it has certain capabilities for example being able to resist the rough weather effects, which is not possible with ordinary paints.
However, some illiterate and ignorant people have started using these sign boards for advertisements of their “election campaigns”. Just like apes, without thinking about the consequences of using public sign boards as their own publicity billboards, they have started putting images of their ugly leaders on our public property. Now most of these sign boards have been completely destroyed, thanks to their beloved “heros”. All of the pictures “on display” on these sign boards are anything but despicable, fashion diasters to say the least (Most need a good hair cut, and the execrable moustaches definitely have to go)
The question arises, do we really deserve to have a quality of life in the first place? We are worse than animals. We don’t think before we act, and we don’t have any regard for our environment and surroundings. At least animals are wise enough to keep their surroundings in good shape.
