An Innocent Question


Last evening at the unscheduled power outage my 9 year old grandson who was preparing for his final exams shouted, “Oh God, what should I do now”? And, then turning to me asked innocently, “Does it also happen in  Zardari and Gilani houses, how do their children prepare for the exams?”


How could I tell him that it doesn’t happen to them, neither to the Assemblies and Senate. Nor to their palaces and lodges. Neither to the Governors’ Houses nor to the Chief Ministers’ Houses.  They are all the especially chosen people above we the lesser mortals. They are not destined to suffer but it is our lot to do so.  Son, they are the rulers and we the ruled ones.  They are the lords and we the serfs. They are the Makhdooms and we the Khadims. They are the Hakims and we the Mahkooms.


Son, don’t waste your time on studying. Join politics when you grow up. None of them is educated and yet they have all the educated ones at their service – to guide them how to perpetuate their rule, how to harden their grip over us the unfortunate ones. How to groom their sons and scions to take over after them. How to ----  .  How to ---- .  How to ---- .
