People never value time and humanity in Pakistan. There is no end to meetings. Indeed, many meetings are convened without a proper agenda what we can call non-productive and a burden on national exchequer. Thousands of rupees are spent for lavish refreshments. We all in this country seem to have lame excuses about why we’re not ready or how the timing could be better and how things would get better in this country.
However, my humble submission to all concerned is for action, not meetings and meetings and procrastination, which is indeed, thief of the time. Our what’s the next thing you’d set out to do if fear of failure and imperfection weren’t holding you back? Above all, those in power and authority must follow the noble principles of governance and conducting meetings by the Father of the Nation, the Qauid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, meetings with a purpose and not burning the candle at both ends.
