A full life span of over 60 years has passed but Pakistan is mired as it was in problems insoluble. No efforts, resources, funds or knowledge is being utilized to solve these problems nor any technique, experience or expertise, least of all any time, being spent to clean the mess we have. The genius of our leadership is employed only to trick and bluff the masses or amass legitimate or illegitimate benefits that could be wrung out of this poor country. And those that do it have all amassed enough to last them seven generations. They rule and run the country the way they want and then run away abroad after having looted the common man to their hearts fill. This is how I would describe the democracy in Pakistan.- MAQSOOD AHMED RAHIM, Lahore, April 1.
