My dearest Pakistan
I may have been away for almost four years now, but my heart still lies in Pakistan. While I may be far from the madding crowd, my mind is constantly on what is happening in my country. I too get worried when I see the political antics and since my sources are limited to the crazy media, and word of mouth, it probably makes it worse.
I shall only say this – to all those who love Pakistan. It is not easy being a patriot in the given situation. Patriotism, like I mentioned to a friend yesterday – is like your Great Love. It is loony, crazy and totally confusing! Hang in there, do not lose yourself amidst the ongoing stampede of what you thought was your political ideology. Politicians, like any other person, disappoint us. Anybody you consider a ‘hero’ will disappoint you – with great expectations, comes greater disappointment. We do not fail with mistakes, we only learn to make a better decision next time! In a chaos, holding onto yourself and your patriotism is difficult, and there is no quick fix to the solution. But remember that things do fall back in their place in their own good time. This too shall pass. I hope. One day!
