My dear Pakistan.
I love you so much.
I love your resilience.
I love your passion.
I love your ‘never give up’ attitude.

I love your emotion.





You don’t have to make sense.
You don’t have to excel.
You don’t have to be the best place in the world to live.

You are my home, and I love you unconditionally.
But if I may, I would like to make a wish for you.

It is a well meaning wish.

A wish out of love and concern.

It is not a wish for self respect, for we can muster that any time emotion strikes.
It is not a wish for self reliance, for that ship sailed long ago.
And it is not a wish for better leaders. We get the leaders we deserve.
My dear Pakistan, my one wish for you is a wish for clarity.

That’s it.
Nothing too big or fancy.
Just clarity.

A brief moment in the sun, to see things as they are, and not as they are imagined.

Clarity of purpose – to define the state you wish to be. It is not enough to be against something. You have to stand for something.

Clarity of conscience – to provide your citizens, all of them, the security and opportunity they deserve.



Clarity of thought – to recognize the enemy. Perhaps the enemy is within. 



A brief moment of clarity.
A brief moment in the sun.
Devoid of emotion and conspiracy theories.
Free of politics and grand standing.
