  1. I have always been thinking and wondering how a country like Pakistan can be poor

    or needy or underdeveloped?! A country possessing rich and generous supply of all

    kinds of resources: human resources (with a population now around 190 million),

    natural resources, fertile land, high snowy peaks, a few in other countries and vast

    deserts, the Indus river and its tributaries, moderate and bearable temperature all

    year along, minerals, and long sea shore, historical reserves, strategic location,

    intelligent, hardworking and beautiful people and nice location at the globe … what

    else? The list goes long. Given that fact, the undeserved demoted situation in which

    our country exists is very questionable.

    Leadership problems can derail any kind of organization, including a country, a large

    Organization. When the leadership is lacking vision of the future, careless

    behaviors, showy and selfish open the doors for endless forms of corruption. The

    result is a stolen economy, derailed law and order situation, lost and depressed

    people, lack of control on the future, and huge money and brain drain from the


    Due to our political blunders, lack of knowledge, vision and shortsightedness we

    were distracted again and again as so many times before, from our required goals.

    For the last many years we are engaged in fighting with our own people causing

    huge economic, social, moral and human loses. We are losing our position in the

    surrounding world. Due to our internal and external policies we are suffering badly

    also in economy. We can just compare our foreign currency reserves which are at 12

    billion dollars with India at 300 billion, Turkey at 125, Bangladesh at 14, Malaysia at

    140, Singapore at 260, Iran at 70 and even very small neighbor Sri Lanka at 8 billion

    dollars. We are lavishly spending on a long list of Imports. We must enhance our

    Engineering, Agricultural and SME sectors to correct this.
