Indifference, or lethargy?

People might blame Islamabad (Metroblog) of not posting enough in the recent assassination of Benazir Bhutto in our twin city Rawalpindi, and they might be doing so rightly. But they have to keep in mind that we have seen enough share of sh*t this year already, and we are repeatedly told not to post about political events that much. In this case, i believe it is more than political, it has become a national calamity at how our leaders are taken away with the click of one bomb at the will of one frustrated (add uneducated, unemployed, malnourished, pissed off) person…

Anyways, I have compiled a list of interesting web links from all over the internet here and here for you to use as reference anywhere. Most of them have been grabbed from various mailing lists and friends. Thanks to all of them.

It is neither indifference nor lethargy, it’s pure catatonia at what is happening around us these days that we are all in, in this blistering cold city. It’s really sad that a part from us few bloggers there isn’t much one can do to help the situation anyway. If you have any good idea, do post a comment, or suggest a story.

Here is my dedication to all depression/sadness stricken young people out there.

    And of course what is going out on the streets of Pakistan these days is not doing enough of representation, I presume.

    There are other responsibilities that I as a Pakistani should be looking out for than watch my language for a child that might get offended. I apologize if you were offended.

    What goes around, comes around

    She might be the leader of uneducated masses, but not for me

    She represented the people who would choose a 19 year old to lead them rather than choosing a 60 year old, lawyer who spent most of his life fighting for the very cause of the party. But because he didn’t belong to the Sh!tty dynasty, he wasn’t even considered for the the leadership.

    Her son will only be the ideological leader of the party, not their prime minister. He really has no role and there is nothing wrong w/that. Parties are free to do wat they want if you dont like the party dont vote for them simple as that.

    Suitable language? Please keep your morality in your trousers, thank you.
