"Speed Dating With Democracy"

The proud people of Pakistan have a deep affection and regard for democracy. The nexus of Pakistanis with democracy is two-way and recurrent despotic regimes have smeared lots of mud on this pretty nexus.

Now in these fearsome and desperate times, we need to ignite a fervent passion in our hearts, and we need to realize with vengeance that we are free and we have got to realize the value of freedom and we need to realize as how much precious this treasure of democracy is for us.

We, all who are free, and who treasure our freedom above all the gifts from the Almighty must bring unity in our rows, we must know each other better, we must foster peace, harmony and love, and we need to trust each other more and communicate with each other more.

We have to take care of each other and we must join hands to fight out the scourge of terrorism, and we must fall in love with our darling basic rights and the fairy of democracy.

One of the things which make Pakistan great is the many young people we have in borough, who are energetic, optimistic, brilliant, aggressive and loving, and who know the value of democracy and who have faith that Pakistan will surge ahead with the speed of light.

These young people need to do a speed dating with democracy.

I hope Pakistan makes it through the troubling times ahead. I must admit I am pessimistic however that democracy will be reached any time soon. One day!

Ghazala, that was flat out beautiful.

"...fall in love with our darling basic rights and the fairy of democracy."

Thank you for sharing this.

Pessimism makes up the bulk of my thoughts about democracy taking root in Pakistan.

But optimism has its own unique energy does it not, nice words Ghazala, and love that artwork...

I have high hopes for Pakistan, but not in the near future. So many changes need to take place in the government, the military, and with the terrorist groups there.

My heart goes out to all the young people who long for freedom to be who they are, to fulfill their true potential, to live peaceful lives and have hopes and dreams for their children.
