      let me share a story that perfectly fits on the current "halat, wakiat, saklat" of Pakistan. it was told by my father when i was a lil and bookworm kinda

      moral of the story is what you have to find yourself.

      ..............so here you go.

      source

      I have fond memories of an amusing ballad "Andheri Nagari Chaupat Raja", which roughly translates "Dark is the nation and insane the king". The hilarious and sardonic poem begins with the graduation ceremony at a gurukul with a disciple seeking the advice of his guru about going to the dark nation to seek his fortune. The teacher advises against the venture despite great economic potential, by saying "Andheri nagri Chaupat raja; takeh ser bhaji, takeh ser khaja". There is one fixed price for spinach and dates and everything and thus the denizens lack intelligent discriminating abilities and these irrational and unjust policies pervade all aspects including commerce, law and ethics, making it an undesirable abode or ally irrespective of monetary or strategic benefits. The young and unwise new graduate goes anyway.

      In this strange land, one night four brothers plan a burglary and try to breach the wall of the house of an affluent family. The bungling incompetent thieves bring the wall down, but in the process are killed by the falling bricks. The mother of the thieves is angry and grieved and files a lawsuit in the court to seek compensation for her loss. In arguing her case before the Qadi (judge), she claims that her sons were merely following their profession and the inappropriately constructed wall caused their demise, for which the homeowner was liable. The judge following the strange and uniform national code of justice, asks the homeowner why he should not be sentenced to death for the loss of the thieves’ lives. The frightened and frazzled homeowner uses the defense that those who constructed the wall are the guilty party and thus exonerates himself. The bricklayer is then summoned to the court and he says it is not his fault as he did his job well and the cement must have been of poor quality. The wrath of the judge and his warped justice then descends on the cement mixer who is accused of pouring too much water during mixing. The cement maker admits that it happened, but attributes it to his required mandatory greeting of the passing Mullah, a legally justifiable diversion that diluted the cement. The Qadi calls the Mullah in. The honest man has no excuse and the judge pronounces death by hanging for the convicted Mullah. The national legally prescribed fixed size noose is brought to the courtyard to string up the guilty offender. Whatever the fault of the Mullah, he is a decent god-fearing man who has refrained from indulging in sin, including gluttony. His neck is thin and his visage lean and his head and cranial capacity on the small side. The noose keeps slipping off his head and neck. The irritated judge who has other commitments, then pontificates that the deaths must be punished and since the circumference of the noose is unalterable by the national religious code, the only way for justice to be done, is to hang the first person whom the noose fits.

      The chubby newly graduated disciple feasting on the cheap dates was idling time watching the wheels of justice and his stout neck fitted the noose. He was to be hanged in the public square next morning as an example to the citizens and to emphasize that justice not only should be done, but it must also publicly seen to be done. The desperate disciple sent an urgent SOS to his guru via a messenger. The guru promptly arrived early morning at the public square and created a ruckus by insisting that he be hanged instead of the disciple. The intrigued Qadi was taken aback at this strange self-destroying demand and even the Mullah suspected some theological mystery. They kept asking the guru for the reason and he refused. The irritated judge then threatened him that if he refused he would be beheaded instead of being hanged. The guru pleaded that he must be hanged. Under further intimidation and duress, the guru confessed that on this day of the new moon, anyone who was hanged would go straight to heaven and was guaranteed double his share of beautiful virgins. The Qadi, then insisted since he was the judge, he would decide who would be hanged. He decided he would hang himself. In the meantime the news had reached the king. He repaired to the scene and used his primate privilege to be hanged. The relieved guru and disciple promptly crossed the borders of the strange realm, vowing never to return again.

      ps. do pay the visit to the source. it talk in detail about how it fit on Pakistan.
      Looks more like the US to me...Where a burglar can sue the tenant of an apartment for cutting himself with a kitchen knife and still win...

      And if you fit the profile of a terrorist (Like my 5 year old niece who has 'listed' name) being held at the airport for 3 hours for questioning...


      lol...

      Good story though...But I am sure it was written by a Hindian...Hence the reference to Mullah and such...
      Got a problem? Blame it on Islamic Radicals...

      ^ pata nahi....but ya they must have written "Mulana saab"

      source only relate it to Pakistan situation (analysis)....but story itself belongs to very old hindi (i think sanskrit) literature. urdu as we all know is a "Lashkari zaban" so cant give it a credit all alone.


      ps. on ur niece thingee

      really? then where was shaukat aziz b4 becoming PM in a fortnight?

      as for others, they maybe are locals, but the think tank they so heavily relies on for sure is imported. otherwise why would mushy call condi basmati rice for making any decision? jahan leadron ka yeh hal ho wahan ki awam ka to Allah bhi hafiz nahi ho ga.
