Every day when I sit in-front of television, the world that I see sends shivers down my spine; Terrorism has become the norm, a routine thing, not just for the people living in Pakistan but for people of great superpowers of the world too. Then, there is the astonishing financial crisis they are facing. Why are all stock markets of the world falling at the same time? Why are the business giants facing the worst time of their history? -MARIAM TAHIRA, via e-mail, December 16.
