Islamabad- A visit from the ghosts of the past shows our leadership what life is really about.
After a logic-defying confrontation with the ghosts of governments that crashed and burned, the current scrooges in charge have had a sudden and strange change of heart. The atmosphere of PM’s University of Emerging Sciences a.k.a the PM house has taken on a decidedly eerie turn. However, the reports coming from the capital are completely tone-deaf and silent on the matter. As the Royals visit, all sorts of measures are being taken to mitigate any disgruntled vibes of the restless populace.
While the Government was all set to decide the ten million jobs as the grand finale of the current season of Jeeto Pakistan, it was not to be. When cornered in an abandoned path off Margala foothills, Shehryar Afridi narrated the event with a haunted, ice-infused gaze. The ghosts of the past governments prevailed upon the leadership. “We saw the light, we saw the true meaning of governance. We just want people to be happy and money is not the way to do that.” says Fawad Chaudhry, “we were silly to think jobs would solve the problems of our youngsters.” He then went on to hug an intern working nearby and told him to go home and be happy. Many other officials also reiterated the sentiment and the action.
“Money is not the solution to anything,” said Zartaj Gul, “Can money give you the beautiful glow and peace of mind I always carry with me? Can money rival a smile on IK’s lips? Can money give Pakistanis what they really want- Us?” The message from the capital, clearly, is to stay steady and keep faith in the true spirit of Christmas. Pakistanis are a spiritually elevated people. Their young ones have no compunctions for material goods. Why should they? Don’t they have phones?
The spokespeople for vaunted PM and SKMCH were both unavailable for comment.
