Bomb blasts, fires, mishaps claiming lives has become a routine and we only hear condemnations and statements from our rulers. Sectarian killing is on the rise, doctors are being murdered. A doctor has spends a lifetime in becoming a doctor and his or her parents spend so much money in educating them. All this effort is erased by one bullet!

We have been facing a huge ‘brain drain’ as educated and learned people find refuge in foreign countries. There is no security foe anyone forcing those who can manage to leave Pakistan and thus depriving us of a large educated class. I wonder where this is all leading, is Pakistan still  Zindabad or has become Zinda Bhag? A question I ask myself, are we waiting for a bullet?
