In 1947, a few weeks after Pakistan’s independence, a group of politicians, army generals, journalists, intellectuals and milkmen (highly revered as fortune tellers in the local culture) met for a long series of meetings on what to do with this newly born country.
Seeing that Pakistan had dozens of ethnicities, who spoke scores of languages, each of which had hundreds of dialects and thousands of curses, it was decided that the country should celebrate its “diversity” from there on in. Unfortunately email facilities in the 1940s weren’t quite what they are now, and so somewhere between a garbled accent and a missed keystroke, the press release for this conference announced that Pakistan had decided to revel in its “adversity”.

Aapka bohot shukriya (Thank you very much). It seems that our blog is crossing ethnical, cultural and national boundries, and really uniting people around the world with the universal language of humor. We can go as far as saying that our blog is making the world a more united and happier place. No, no need to thank us for this. You’re welcome.
Pakistani's have so much spirit, to be so witty and enjoy the small things in times of adversity, Mashallah. My parents are from Karachi and the last time I was there was about 11 years ago. I know this blog is meant to be light hearted but it's made me so emotional. Love and prayers to Pakistan.
