I want to Brag a Minute about Pakistan

Don’t get me wrong, I’m generally not that type who boasts but when I thought about it, what is the one thing which I can show off about? It is my very own mother country PAKISTAN. It’s the country where I was born, brought up and now living my life. I have explored most of its famous trademark places, be it Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore, Mazar-e-Quaid in Karachi, Faisal Mosque in Islamabad or Lake Saiful Muluk in Kaghan. All these places are absolutely breathtaking. When you visit these areas, you will know you are in the presence of true splendor. All of these are made with spot on brilliance.

My favorite hobby whenever I visited the northern areas was horse-riding; I got to do a lot of it when I visited Nathia Gali and Murree. The horses are so beautiful, strong and free-spirited. I used to enjoy being in their presence when I was a little girl. It’s been my dream since forever to live in those areas in which where ever I look, the surroundings leave me in awe.
I, and so do most people, lovingly call Pakistan as Paki and Pakiland because our love for it is immeasurable and eternal. Pakistan has grown so much over time; it has all the newly constructed bridges, underpasses and roads. It also now has excellent drainage system. Whenever it rains, the water clears up in mere 3 to 4 hours.

Pakistan has emerged with great talent in terms of sports, music and acting. More and more youngsters are representing Pakistan across the globe which I feel so proud of. Many citizens have now realized the importance of education. They are now learning the value of having academic goals and aims.

My heart bleeds when I see people who do not have sufficient funds to support themselves and their family. For that Pakistan has many NGOs to sustain all those people who are affected by poverty.

I have love for my country which is undying so do the soldiers which are protecting Pakistan’s borders. They forget sleep, food and their family for us. We should have pride in ourselves for being Pakistanis.

For PAKISTAN, my nation, my kingdom. I love you Pakistan.

    We Americans take so much for granted. It's our obligation to reach out to those who are less fortunate.

    "It is my very own mother country

    PAKISTAN. It’s the country where

    I was born, brought up and now

    living my life".

    But when I was born the same

    'country' was named India/Hindostan

    about which Allama Iqbal was singing

    his 'Taraana':

    "Hindi hein ham watan he

    Hindostan hamara

    Ham bulbalein hein iski yih

    gulsataan hamara"

    Again I happened to overhear a

    Bihari who was born in East Pakistan

    and was contending with the NADRA

    official to get that fact entered

    in his ID card, but in vain as there

    was only one option available for his

    birthplace with the NADRA now and that

    was Bangladesh for that.

    Similarly, an official in the Indian

    High Commissioner, while considering my application

    for visa asked me a Paky

    whether I had visited India before.

    On my reply that I was born in India

    he got offended and turned me out.

    I say how we the nightingales of

    the land, which has now come to be

    called 'subcontinent', are being joked about

    in respect to our 'watan',

    country, state, the terms which

    are becoming confusing for the

    people of the Pakiland.

    Kinza dear you are not confused and can even boast

    about your country because you are oblivious of

    the history of the subcontinent which was once called,

    Hindostan, which stretched from Kheyber to Calcutta

    and which you could traverse by simply buying a railway

    ticket at Peshawar to Calcutta.
