Clean Yourselves for a better Pakistan by Yasir Ashraf Bajwa

The image shows how bribery is common in Pakistan.

The fallen can only rise if they try standing back up on their own feet. Likewise, a nation can only attain success if it tries footing up with out the help of any outsider. We have a great example in the very same continent. Japan, not more than 69 years ago, the country was burnt in to flames. But now, it is one of the leading economies of the world as it recently announces its annual budget of $937 Billion. How did they do it? The answer would be ‘By their selves’. What all this means is that we the people of Pakistan are the only ones who can help our nation prosper. No help from any other country on this planet will be effective until we tie up our laces by ourselves.

We being Pakistanis are very proud of our nation. We celebrate our national days with excitement, posting pictures of Jinnah and statuses for our nation on the social media. But the story should not just end here. All of us are equally responsible in amending the picture of our beloved nation being painted by the international media and the interested lobbies, as a terrorist nation and one of the most corrupt countries. It is not just the image of our nation being spoiled; it is our own faces getting bruised. 6121630-Pakistani_Flag_Flying_at_Minar_e_Pakistan_Lahore_Lahore

Pakistan is our home. No matter how much our people try running out of our country, they can not get as much freedom, as much pride and as much respect in any other place outside our very own Pakistan. Exactly like we solve problems at our home, we need to solve the issues inside our country which have been leading to such results. To give our country its name and respect back, we all need to hold each other’s hands and move forward together.

We all are very well aware that bribery and corruption are one of the most effective seeds of our poor economic, social and health conditions. Every time we see someone involved on such acts, we accuse them without realizing that at times every one of us is a part of these acts. Some at a bigger level while others at a lower scale. Most of us drive without a driving license, even that is corruption. We have polluted our nation’s image with accusations by ourselves. The blame can not be wholly put on the media. Hence, the first step that we need to make in order to save our nations pride should be to eradicate all these false habits with in our soles.

Life: A School, A Mission by Yasir Ashraf Bajwa

Sometimes you can read something or have a life experience that hits you over the head with its brilliance and perfection. A huge mind shift takes place, and your life is forever altered for the better. The important thing is the discovery of the purpose of your life and how you apply it to your life. Once you realize these great truths are out there, it becomes a lifelong challenge to discover more of them.

Life is full of crests and troughs and I believe that if your life goes smooth, there will be no fun in living it. Its not the about the time you have to spend alive on this planet, it’s a school in it’s self. Your age is not just the number of years you have lived; it’s the amount of experience you have gained.

My name is Yasir Bajwa and I am studying Marketing and Media with Marketing as my majors, at Lahore School of Economics. My hobbies are to enjoy life at every step and in every condition. Throughout the past twenty years of my period alive, I have seen quite a lot of variations in my life. I have seen the high times, and the low times, but I prefer the low times because they keep you active in search of the high times and while you are at it, you already learn a lot about life and people.

My most recent goal in life is to make other people’s living better and healthier. I started by searching for a way to make the provision of pure, clean, healthy water to the people of this nation easier as the first step in achieving my goal, as pure water is one of the basic and most important necessities of us humans. With success I have found the answer and have recently started promoting high quality water treatment systems in Pakistan. These systems run on solar or wind power and are designed and manufactured by a Swiss company which is one of the top in the world and is involved in the development of high efficiency water treatment systems and renewable energy solutions. Currently I am targeting large institutions, hospitals, NGOs and the government at all levels, that I can take in partnership to achieve my goal.

We all have been born with a mission to attain in life. I made mine to make this world or at least our own nation a better place to live in, a place where every one greets each other with a smile on their faces instead of attitude in their eyes, which unfortunately is the latest trend. I don’t think it is as difficult as we have made it.
