The same kinds of rulers have been ruling the country for the past 60 years. New ones are a replica of the old ones. History keeps repeating itself here but fate of the people never changes. Lately, their sufferings have increased to an alarming extent. But rulers have simply turned a blind eye to their plight. 60 years ago, we sacrificed a lot of lives to get a homeland where we had thought every citizen will have equal rights and nobody will be above the law. But the country named Pakistan has today become a paradise for corrupt bureaucrats, politicians and army persons. Instead of planning for betterment and prosperity of the common people, they work to better the standard of their own lives. We as a nation are running in circles and have reached at the point from where we had started. -AYESHA SIDRA, Taxila Cantt., via e-mail, May 10.
