Image of Pakistan in your sight?
Zx, Sorry if I went overboard with my reaction. Its true that I am not responsible for my fellow citizens, I should be responsible towards my government though. You must watch Ted talk by Chimamanda......she elegantly explains whats wrong with generalizations, hope u like that talk :)

Well said Pabithra, being an Indian I share the same view, I feel I am closer to a Pakistani than a Caucasian, I know I am being regionalistic but if we are ok with nationalism we should be ok with regionalism.

"Pakistani people are more honest then Afghans and Arabs" Dear Zx, pray do not generalize (like u did in your post). One person may be more honest than other, but you can not compare nations, its only helps in stereotyping people and stereotyping is not good. Portraying Indians as scammers is also not justifiable, hope you realize that you are talking about billion people.

Education for Kids in Pakistan
We need to change the system Najam, we can not depend on some one elses generosity. You got to bring in the change. I know India is not doing any better, but at least some people are trying. It has been more than 65 years we got independence its about time we should take care of ourselves.

So, what is the purpose of men in modern families?
John: We now live in the era where we use our brains to think and don't blindly follow what men/women of cloth preaches (Its true that all religions used to treat women as second class citizens). We believe in equality and I do not think women will or can take over men in totality. Women are better at some aspects and so are men in others. And we mostly live in democratic countries and I do not suppose percentage of men would dwindle down to minority that women should take over the world.

Santokh: I am sure you did not think before you posted your opinion. If you did think, what exactly is in your mind? Could you elaborate? Are you talking about evolution or feminists taking over the world. If you suppose the later, I must say you are mistaken.
