Why is it that we are not being able to get physical fit presidents and military leaders so often? Our presidents unlike US presidents cannot jog for six miles. Roughly half of Pakistan's presidents and military leaders were substantially diseased by the time they were in power since Ghulam Muhammed times. One of our recent PM had advanced Parkinson's disease. Most are in and out of hospitals for "checkup". For an underfed 180 million, we deserve at least fit persons to take charge Unfortunately, we are not even told the reality that God helps those who help themselves. -M. SHAIKH, Islamabad, via e-mail, July 6.
