GDP and GDPD – Religious or Political Unrest in Pakistan


Light bulb 💡!!

in the wake of current mob-rule and riots

On this holy day of Friday I am proposing a new economic measure today! It is imperative to measure this new measure against the GDP.

GDPD: (Gross domestic product destroyed) monetary measure of the market value of all the raw and final goods and services destroyed in a period of time, often annually.

It would definitely give us insights in to economic potential and economic well-being denied.

Higher Poetry: Shah Hussain (Rehmt. A) — Ghoom Cherkhiya Ghoom by Pathanay Khan


There’s is higher poetry, touching the epitome of Love for life and God. And if there’s is one like Pathanay Khan (پٹھانے خان) to sing it with his endlessly heart wrenching voice; the ebb and flow, ever engaging yet volatile melodious tone with a hint of pleasure in pain; one’s heart simply sinks more deeper in love.

‘Ghoom Cherkhiya Ghoom’, it explains none but the ultimate relationship between ones soul and the mortal body. Soul which is enchanted in the cage of body.

Cherkha (چرخہ) is symbolises how body, spirit and soul are tied through with trivial yet powerful bond.

گھوم چرخیا گھوم
گھوم چرخیا گھوم
تیری کتن والی جیوے
کتن والی جیوے
نالے وٹن والی جیوے
گھوم چرخیا گھوم

مولانا قیامت کب آئے گی؟ جب مچھر مر جائے گا اور گائے بے خوف ہو جائے گی!

مچھر کب مرے گا؟ اور گائے کب بے خوف ہو گی؟ جب سورج مغرب سے نکلے گا!

اور مرغی بانگ کب دے گی؟ جب کلام کرنے والے چُپ ہو جایں گے اور جوتے کے تسمے باندھے گے!

Violation of Social Contracts A Sign of Eroding Society – Pakistan


To live in the form of a society all Govt., law and people must enter into a voluntary contract with mutual consent to protect their natural rights and to live together in harmony for a common benefit known as Social Contract.

Though the social contract theory leads to the formation of political authority and the concept of Govt. but here it is beyond the scope of this discussion This Social Contract also leads to the formation of Constitution.

As pointed out earlier, social contract becomes imperative for a society to live in harmony and anyone breaching this contract may be reprimanded by the Government entrusted through social contract by majority of the people by working under the same consented contract. Since, the Social Contract is the fundamental component of the society, any breach of this contract will actually hurt harmony in society and the very existence of society itself. As soon as the minority number of breaches of the social contract increase social fabric of society starts to erode.

In Pakistan, unfortunately this contract is breached by both the entrusted Government and the people. Continue reading
