They say.. ‘We cannot stop time but we can atleast turn it back when DST ends.’

Finally daylight saving time(DST) ends in Pakistan after long period of 5 months.
Initially it was intriduced for aperiod of 3 months but later on exceded for 2 more months

It is said ‘Saving time = saving energy’ but this does not seem to be the case with Pakistan. Although this system was introduced few months back in the name of saving electricity for the country.. but we have encountered even long bitter days of loadshedding during this period!

And it seems as if it was introduced just for a change or to make a fool out of already befooled public.. if not anything else!

be positive! for a change..

Pak-Sino ink 11 MoUs ..

BEIJING (Oct 16, 2008): Pakistan & China on Wednesday signed eleven agreements, MoUs and protocols to enhance bilateral co-operation on sound footing in diverse sectors including infrastructure, energy, telecommunication, agriculture, industry, minerals, trade, disaster relief and space technology.

China will also cooperate us in Bhasha and Kohala dams,” said Qureshi, adding that President Zardari would visit the China after every three months. He said Pakistan would soon launch its first communication satellite in collaboration with China.

Hopefully this cooperation is going to boost the economy of Pakistan and will bring he much needed relief to the poverty stricken people.
Although the assured visit of our Pres. to China every 3 months will make us pay for it! but maybe it is for the betterment of our people.. who knows!

I guess we should get into some real business.. something more than the mere promises!
some activity! some work! some result!!

and then we want to see the change!
how are those dams going to change our lives!
how the telecom sector will boost the economy!
will those investments on the agriculture sector provide us enough food!
how is the energy sector going to resolve our major issue of power crisis!

phew! i thought to write something constructive n be positive for a change!
but maybe my mind can not think of somethign positive right now.. and i should give it some time to relax!
