I know this question will raise many hands and will be regarded controversial among majority of readers. I have been thinking on this topic quite a long time and I went through some of the factors responsible for declaring any nation a failed state. With an ever-increasing load on economy, continuous penetration of militants into Pakistan from Afghanistan, increasing Islamic extremism, failure to provide “basic” necessities to the public, increasing protest from citizens on basic things like electricity, water and security, increasing level of violence during protest which needs to be peaceful, use of armed forces for the inner stability of country, increasing number of Internally displaced people (IDP’s), incidents of group of people declaring “state within a state” and last but no the least; failure of an “elected democratic” government in maintaining law and order situation.

Witches on their magic brooms.
In masks and gowns
we haunt the street
And knock on doors
for trick or treat. Continue reading “Awe-Inspiring night at TIP!”
Textile Institute of Pakistan has celebrated it’s carnival on Dec 04 2009. The event was
beautifully arranged by Textile Institute Students Forum. Many students and Texperts brightened the night with their colorful yet scary costumes. The theme was Halloween with the Desi touch. The event started with the coverage of AAG TV who not only captured the scary and desi night in their cameras but also made the crowd to dance the night away. The event included “Dance competition” and “Best costume award” and cash prizes were awarded to deserving participants by the host of AAG TV. The location of carnival was decorated with scary theme in mind; there were graves with RIP signs on them which were not only frightening but became favourite photo shoot spot for the students.
