Homeland

That is what i call MY HOMELAND,Yes indeed it is a hidden paradise When I see from the eyes of western person I see it as a desert and barren country...but perhaps one should see it through my lens...and then one would come to know that why it is a hidden paradise.

 

Well the spirituality of my homeland is not just restricted to the intangible belief systems. It also reflects in the splendors of Mother Nature. From the pristine peaks in the north to the mangroves of the Indus delta, Pakistan blends climates, geographies, terrains in its melting pot. Within hours of leaving an arid zone, one enters into a fertile delta. And again a few more hours put you right in front of otherworldly mountains.

 

It is said that "you cannot belong to the world until you belong to your country".

 

We all have dreams. We all have expectations. But Pakistan would not change until we try to make some contributions. We are the culprits because we don't have nationalism in ourselves.We ourselves don't make any changes but if we don't make any changes than a time will come when there is nothing to change. Recall the words of Dr martin Luther King 'Our lives began to end the day we keep silent on things that matter". To us our country matters a lot therefore we need to bring a change. A positive one...
