Unilever's cruelty challenge!!

Unilever's reality show being shot in Thailand killed a guy named Saad Khan, an employee of RBS-Pakistan. The news is been reported in most of the international media but none in Pakistan dare to put in print as these greedy so called champions of free press are being paid by Unilever in terms of advertisements. Its really unfair!!

In may, another contestant in the Bulgarian version of 'Survivor' was died of heart attack after attempting for one activity during the contest.

That's a pity that these reality shows didn't go with proper hazard pre-cautions and first aid and medical on spot.

Reference to cruelty challenge, on contrary, Unilever Pakistan is trying to suppress the news, trying to close the blogs and websites holding the news, instead they should come up and share a public apology, it would enhance the image of the brand. Suppressing/ hiding the news is attracting attention of more people and well, everyone is giving more attention to it and creating a bad name to the brand.
Hope somebody is listening..

Fiery Musharraf, did you need anyone?

ISLAMABAD: The most ‘intelligent’ man of South Asia aka President of General Musharraf has returned after his half month visit to the Policeman of the world alias United States of America.

The godly figure has met countless head of States and visited numerous universities banging the verbose that Pakistan is a change country now, far-sighted with US shoulder to shoulder to counter terrorism and can do anything to woe his employer ‘US’.

Whatever we say but well Musharraf was a one man leading all the channels and has superceded all politicians with his drop dead intelligence. The ministers in his entourage were looking like mice and empty headed as he sing the song of progressive Pakistan all along this 15 days trip.

Well, Musharraf…one thing to say, you alone is enough why you need these measly figures with you when you already have handful Goras beside you to give an awesome company??

As a nation we are proud of you to be imposed on us as President and the way you are creating soft interface for Pakistan with your strong presence. But well, one thing to say which is not the least, you should stress and make measures on the ripening inflation and make all efforts to change the saga for a common Man.

Well, your puppets have created a good scene for sugar crises and we have got the first fruit of branded sugar by the name of ‘sugarita’. Are we about to see all necessary items of daily use in branded shape and the poor consumer had to ask for loans from XYZ bank to finance the monthly grocery?

If Musharraf flinch inflation and create class equity than God bless you Musharraf, we are with you…. (Rawonnion bulletin)

Unspoken misery…

Our fore-fathers would have been very apprehensive in their struggle for separate homeland, if they knew that within a short span of just twenty-five years the country would break into two halves. And the place would be spotted by corruption, crime, loot, deceitness and drudgery.

That, this land of pure would be ruled by such cheaters who could leave their everything for handful of dollars. Where there would be the law of jungle and no place of poor. Where prices as soar that only one could afford luxury, where education is for sale so that only few ‘already sold’ could afford and the rest remain in drudgery.

Bangladesh, that became separate, though confronted by ghastly in-house politics, continuous floods and massive poverty. With sane, sincere and patriotic practices, Bengalis are far ahead from Pakistan now. Their growth is a solid one and people are far more knowledgeable than here. The country is not into class clashes and fashion mockery as here, their integrity in the world stood apart, Pakistanis who are fools and could not create an identity in the world that Pakistanis are different from Indians. [In west, a common person still relates Pakistan with India and did not differentiate it]

In such circumstances how one could expect to say that I am a proud Pakistani or I love Pakistan…

Well, I am a desecrate young Paki whose hands are tied-up and have just one way at the end of tunnel to leave the country and do something that could create a name… but well, my soul says I should stop the struggle… leave everything as it won’t do any good. Stop being patriotic as the conspiracy is so strong and well grounded that there would be no good at all. Everything is happening on the whims of Uncle Sam… Who we are?

Just concentrate on job, family and religion. And be peace with it and let the things to be decided by the traitors, looters and the mafia.

Is this what we should do?

I wanna hear your voice……………………………

Is another world possible?

A colour, vibrant and jazzy collection of activists from a variety of countries each enchanting slogans leading to the agenda towards free thinking and anti-imperialism

World Social Forum is a consortium of anti-globalization activists founded in Brazil in 2001. Since then activists from around the globe started to meet annually in conjunction with World Economic Forum to oppose and educate people with the evils of New World Order. This year the organizers tried to spread the agenda by organizing it in three countries, infact three continents. Africa: Mali (January19-23), Latin America: Caracas, Venezuela (January 24-29) and Asia: Karachi, Pakistan (March 24-29).

WSF is a mega event and whenever it held it take the lime light of media from all over the globe. In Karachi, it was suppose to be held in January but because of Earthquake it was extended for two months.

About 15000 delegates from outside Karachi sprawled towards the city of lights including 5000 from 60 countries. Indians, Chinese, Koreans, Brazilians, Nepalese, Sri Lankan, French, Burmese yet every variety of colour, cast and creed was found at the event. And well, the event was not just like an expo or a variety show but it was composed of over 400 seminars. Rallies, theatre activities, walks, melas and several colourful programmes add flavour.

The opening ceremony was started with the folk performances from all provinces and opening remarks by Tariq Ali (UK), Asma Jahangir (Pakistan), Moeema Miranda (Brazil), Gustav Masia (France), Jamal Juma (Palestine), Irene Lean (Ecuador), Jose Migual Henandez (Cuba) and Basil Manning (South Africa).

Delegates from 50 countries attended the opening session chaired by Indian MP Kumari Nirmala Deshpande "We want peace and justice in the world, we are against war," Brazilian delegate, Moema Miranda, told the gathering. "We can achieve this by uniting ourselves and the World Social Forum must move on," she added.

Asma Jehangir laments the current military leadership of being hypocrite and pro-western, she challenges the concept of free market. Asma Jehangir enthuse positivity that we will empower ourselves and could fight against the hegemony enforced on us.

The WSF representative from Brazil, Moeema Miranda, said: “WSF offers opportunities to bring together popular forces from varied constituencies to develop constructive alternatives that will defend the majority of world population from attack on fundamental human rights and lead them to move on to break power concentrations and extend domains of justice and freedom.

Pakistan's first WSF meeting was held under tight security after the latest suicide blasts in this volatile southern city that killed a US diplomat and four other people this month. "It's good that despite the blast a lot of foreign delegates are attending the meeting," chief organizer Karmat Ali said.

Delegates held discussions on issues ranging from HIV and Aids, Indo Pak Cricket for peace, Youth, Women liberation to highly publicized series of forums on Kashmir issue. There were paintings, exhibitions, tableaus, theatre shows, and walks etc. There were numerous rallies with periodic intervals. But the best part which clicked me immensely is that the forum was attended by people from all walks of life and in several sessions you can view a woman from a rural village from interior Sindh sitting next to highly modern elite lady. This thing had taken me literally and this is the amalgamation our nation was looking for since ages and well WSF paved the way for this entanglement of people from different classes, background and ideologies.

But there seems a high lack of coordination among the organizers, the kit was not provided on the first day and when the kit was provided the event schedule was not given. There were no banners or boards guiding the public that which hall is where and one have to take the round of whole area to find the required spot. Many commented that the event has become more a political party and NGO moot and the real issues been ignored. Even clashes among representatives from different provinces were witnessed in some sessions.

The schedule was not followed and the halls were not maintained properly. Everything was marred with dust and bright sun. Even a female speaker belonging from NGO got fainted. Weather has made the event pathetic for visitors to be there in day-time. There were no dust-bins and the eating places looked more or less like garbage dump by the end of each day. The organizers should be proactive and far sighted enough and had provided waste-bins at spot. In addition eating goods were very expensive. If the organizers and WSF people can't arrange their event than how could they run that Another World??

Even there was no sound publicity done of the event. Many NGOs and intellectuals complained that they wanted to participate but didn't know how to register their discussion groups. The website holds very incomprehensive information about the event. The camps where the foreign volunteers and visitors were accommodated were also not properly managed and facilities were not provided properly. The organizers should provide them excellent accommodation so that they carry good example of hospitality when they leave the country.

But overall the event was superb and thumbs-up in many ways. It paved the way for many foreigners to visit Pakistan for the first time and got an open interface to interact with Pakistani people. It really correct their views as Pakistan is seen as a place like Afghanistan where fighting take place all the time. It was also a colourful fusion of different classes and cultures but I believe the potential could have gauged and brought into use if the activity was properly planned and the participating NGOs were productive in their sessions. The sessions went more like discussion groups in a measly organized setting. If the organisers have utilized the space of expo centre, it would have added million colours to the event. The visitors from interior and provincial capitals must have learned a lot and created a good network when they return home. No doubt it was a proud achievement for Pakistani activists who have lobbied hard to become the host. We wish every year Pakistan become avenue of such global events aiming at empowering society and the individual in general.
