Pakistan's future

When every one can predict Pakistan's future, than why can't I. After having a detailed conversation with my illiterate vegetable vendor, I can safely predict the following.

Police: The police will remain as corrupt as it is today. All genius, honest people who sit in the competitive exams and grab the coveted police posts end up in corruption. They can't excel in their department until they oblige the ruling political party.

Judiciary: The judiciary is undergoing transitions now. These transitions are not institutionalised, rather they are personalised and revolve around Chief Justice of Pakistan Chaudhry Iftikhar. The moment he retires from the judiciary, justice-for-sale judges will prevail.

Education: The public sector education will remain as funny as it is today.  The interference of politicians in the department, will ensure a consistent supply of donkeys graduating from these schools. Our public schools have got boundary walls for first time since the creation of Pakistan and that too courtesy of Taliban threats of blowing up schools. May be another Taliban threat that they will blow up schools with bad result, can improve the standard of education.

Nationalisation: The word will be removed  from out national political dictionary. Nationalisation has never worked anywhere - not even in Russia. Its bound to collapse. A state-run organisation in loss becomes profitable the moment its privatised.

Ethics: Ethics are somehow linked to the region. Like language they also change from region to region. And they will remain the same in Pakistan.

Fazlur Rehman: The JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman will be a key puppet in the hands of God knows what. His political shenanigans will keep on haunting the nation at the oddest of political times.

Democracy: Like ethics, democracy is also linked to the region. It gives different flavour in different countries. Our democratic values will remain same even after hundred years.

Nargis: She will keep ruling the hearts and minds of gujjars with the sway of her wide hips and shaking of ample bosom.
