Not upon the Aashiqi bit as a deadwood like me in no way can compliment or reciprocate the passion of Dr. Sahiba the way Kashmala Tariq does.
It is just that I always have had some mild difference of opinion with the intellectual lady every time the golden words were uttered. Sometimes, I found them flabbergasting to the point of shock or awe or an exciting and a rich mix of both. At others completely senseless and ludicrous.
The feeling owes more to my immaturity, narrow mindedness and imbecile behaviour for there is no reason why words of such supreme intellect, caliber and wisdom be ill received.
PPP has always been spilling with the gifted presence of intellectual ladies. Late prime minister, Benazir Bhutto was personally one of my favourities, who in my opinion, could’ve made the difference with her charisma and prowess. Now that she is, most unfortunately, history and stalwarts like Sherry Rehman have side stepped, it all comes down to the bravado and firebrand leadership of the likes of Fouzia Wahab and Firdous Awan to lunge forward and plug the gap. Not to mention the fact that the later originally hailed from another party and will have to switch further, if anything, to give herself close to a realistic chance of retaining her seat during the next elections.
While I have digressed pointlessly, lets get back to where we were, i.e our agreement. During her visit to Sialkot Chamber of Commerce, the minister for Women Development has come up with the novel idea of marking and promoting the hand made export products as
‘Made By Woman’
Manufactured by a poor rural woman should earn some differentiation and enable us carve a niche in the export markets. The feminine touch or workmanship coupled with the subliminal idea of women emancipation and empowerment should generate sufficient appeal for the products in the western countries paving way for us to earn more foreign exchange and better image.
That’s how the mind of the doctor works. All is not lost. Not until as long as she keeps coming up with logical thoughts amidst her illogical torrents and outbursts.
