We make New Year’s resolutions every year. This made me realise that being Pakistanis, we only enjoy August 14 as a public holiday and are less interested in thinking about building up the country and doing something which can help the country progress. We, as individuals, never make any commitment with ourselves or spare the time to make an Independence Day resolution.

Time demands every individual to make a resolution not only for their own progress and prosperity but also for the country which gave them name, fame and recognition, and we collectively have to brighten its name across the globe. We feel proud of our ancestors, but isn’t it injustice to our children who in the future will have no heroes to feel proud of or look up to? Think for a while and just do it!

Pakistan Zindabad!

MAAHAM NAZ,

Karachi, August 13.
