I celebrate independence proudly every year; it is a great achievement and surely a precious gift. Our ancestors strived hard selflessly for this and we should not take this for granted. However we are lacking in many fields like sports, there was a time when we used to excel in all kinds of sports but now we are standing last in all the sports. This is done because of mishandling and mismanagement. There is a lot of talent in Pakistani but professional management is required so that we can succeed. n
