The Poor Little Rich President.

I am completely and thoroughly tired of hearing "Dila Teer Bijaan Allay" everywhere I go. What are these people celebrating? The advent of another plutocratic President who by the way happens to be the second-richest man in the country?

Are these people seriously deluded or what?

Everywhere I go I hear the intelligent factions of society condemning the arrival of the man with the thicker moustache and yet here he is with all the fanfare and glory ready to rock Pakistan into a potentially explosive future (literally, now that I read about the US attacks). I can only ask the people of Pakistan, beg them, beseech them, pray for them, to open their eyes.

Open your eyes. This is a country where peopel are dying for food and health. And these are the assets of your President:

oh mere khuda mere khuda mere khuda.....
i want to cry. and these are the properties people know about; there are probably more.
But you know what? This country, and it's people deserve a man like him. It's the poor that are stopping the traffic and dancing in the street. Bhooke marein khud.

Majaz said...

The poor don't know the difference anymore. They can die for BB and dance for her corrupt husband.

What about people like us? What are we doing?

S. said...

what do people DO with so much money? i mean seriously. i'd be unhappy if i ever passed a few billions, but wow. look at him go..

Majaz said...

.. and after today, he'll continue to go and go and go.

Sigh. He could feed millions with just one bank account.

If only Robin Hood existed in this age, and I would have invited him to Islamabad. Margalla Hills might not be Sherwood Forest, but they are good enough.

Majaz said...

Gotham, Metropolis, Sherwood. That's all us alright.

Money begets money.

And poor is made to be poorer.

This is the Fate.

Any way,your posting is weldone, informative for politicians to pay Mr. President back.

Deep home work done.Congrats!


Cuckoo said...

So much propety... so much money all in one man's life.. and so many millions without any idea where their next meal would come from.. life is not fair. Why were all the cases against him withdrawn or decided in his favour?

Well, its not too different this side of the LoC either. And am NOT happy about it.

Majaz said...


I can't say I can take all the credit for this post. This was actually a forwarded email. But I'm sure whoever did the effort will receive your kudos. I like to believe in karma.


Sometimes yes, life is outrageously unfair. And yes, even more unfortunately so it is a fact that transcends all borders.

i dont know if im seriously waiting for harry but atleast writing about it- thinking about it- makes the one feel like something is whirring somewhere- even if it in your own head. i dont know what people like us CAN do? people like us run away- amreeka- london- dubai- wherever because its about what the country does for you not what you can do for the country here-

as for me- im still thinking- what CAN i do?

Majaz said...

Sigh. I know. That's what we've been asking ourselves. What do we do after bitching so much about him, after cursing our systems, after calling our country at the brink of civil war ... what after that?

What do we do after all that?

Hira and I have written a song about it.

*feeble shrug*

I guess, that's something, eh?

Anonymous said...

Care to share that song?

Who knows, our new president might become moam after listening to it and leave the presidency.

Wishful thinking, I know. *sighs*

Majaz said...

Ali, on lead guitars, is still trying to juggle his extremely busy schedule with his musical responsibilities. We have the lyrics, we have the vocals, and soon we'll have a good video which will be release on youtube!

Stay tuned!!!
