It is so difficult to say Happy New Year to my all visitors and friends as I am not a satisfied and content Pakistani any more. This year can be labeled as a year of uneasiness, unrest and insecure for all kind of Pakistanis like me who once enjoyed all lively events of Pakistan like Eid, basant, new year, cricket and hockey matches in Qaddafi stadium, musical nights and drama in Lahore cultural centers.
All pleasures of enjoyment have lost its true spirit due to insecure situation,lawlessness and mismanagement disasters of ruling group .Basant is now considered as killer like festival, matches have lost interest under betting scandals and uneven performance of players, Eids and musical night activities have been over ruled by terrorism factor .This is terrorism event that has become one of most near and fear like occasions written in the fate of Pakistanis in last years so our all lively and decent social activities have been restricted to our family gatherings in the form of marriages, dinners and family visits.In these family and friends functions the fear factors like loads shedding, high food prices, and abnormal tax invasion some how affecting the quality of genuine social gatherings which was once part of our strong traditions.
We have left 2010 with lot of bitter experiences and its after effects can be apprehended in coming years.Few of them are haunted fears for our new hopes of prosperity and peace of land which are going toward downward trend for last many years.
