Jo roken dalny ki koshish kry ga kuchla jai ga, buldoz kia jai ga, dafn ho ga… It is not about just Imran khan or chief justice. It is about the mood of state. It is now or never; if Pakistan has to survive.

  • This is how you create wealth in Pakistan. CJ is killing IK’s plan at birth!

    If education is to remain unprofitable then no one will invest in it. The country will regress further!

    I’ve worked in Bpo industry, here is what the situation is: A level students of “Beacon House and City School” type elite schools earn more than 80K per month ( I repeat; Students of A level who are usually around age 18-20), and students of Bachelor or Master ( brought up in Public schools) make around 30k even if they have an experience of working there. Why is that ? Just because of their fluent English.

    My cousins was taught French in O levels ( We are not taught even proper Urdu/Arabic in our 9th/10th, now one of them is doing engineering at Oregon State University and the other one is doing BS IR in UK.

    Just take an example of Convents, most of the female CSS candidates this year had a Convent upbringing in early education.
