In his letter to The Nation, young student Falaksher Khan laments the fact that all emails sent to the email address of Karachi Board of Secondary Education bounce back with a message that no such email address exists. Here are a few other examples; PIA's main email is only for bouncing back all emails sent on this address. All emails sent to General Manager Phones STR-III Karachi at his email are bound to bounce back. PTCL's main email, often given on their website, does the same. The computers and websites, on huge expense, have only been installed in our government departments to spend the budget allocations and oblige a few 'dear' suppliers. These computers are playthings of our high officials on whose tables these fancy gadgets are placed not for official work but to make them feel good. Take the official website of federal Ministry of labour, Manpower & Overseas Pakistanis. Today, on May 12, 2008 the website shows photographs of Ghulam Sarwar Khan as Minister of Labour & Manpower & Overseas Pakistanis and Raza Hayat Haraj as Minister of State for the same whereas they have been gone since long. The efficient PPP minister posted in their place cannot change or update their own names on their official website. How can one expect them to change our fate? -ANUM, Karachi, via e-mail, May 14.
