Dreams are for real
By marvi memon
Those who can dream can also make their dreams come true. The power to dream the right dream is a first step. When I roam the goth gitteees of my Sindhri I feel that my Sindhi maarooara have stopped dreaming. They have accepted their rotten lives because they feel their lives can hold nothing better for them. They are disappointed with the many rulers who promise rosy gardens and then deliver gutters.This is almost like death for the millions of Sindhis who have given up on their lives.
Today I urge my Sindhi people and especially my sindhi youth to dream a little with me so that they start living again. Dream with those who have never disappointed you. Dream with those who understand bhittai sarkars spirit of sacrifice and have sacrificed power for people. Dream with those of us who live in the midst of all of you and not above you. Dream a little with me…and then join hands to make that dream real.
I dream of a Sindhri where there will be a new social contract between the federation and the provinces on the basis of implementation of the 18th amendment. Where the powers of federation will be devolved to the provinces in the spirit of the resolutions which were the basis for the creation of Pakistan. I dream of a dharti where Sindhi and all our mother tongues are declared quomi boli.
I dream of a Sindhri which will be saved from any evil forces trying to divide it. I dream of a Sindhri where Sindhis will do Maalki of their own natural resources with the executive posts lying in the hands of the people of sindh. Where there will be no dharail raaj, no violence will be tolerated against any sect,religion, or ethnicity. Where all humans will be treated with dignity and equality. Where our cities will be free from political parties terrorist wings terror activities. Where those killed in terror acts will get justice.
A Sindhri where the law enforcers are not the law breakers and where accountability of corruption and bad governance will be carried out especially for developmental projects. Where every penny spent on public good is visible on the roads versus in some elite’s pockets.
A Sindhri which will not be flooded a third year running and the past flood affectees are not made beggars but are rehabilitated in dignified way. Where irrigation and drainage systems are strengthend and where funds can be seen on the roads. A Sindhri whose local government systems are the same throughout all it’s districts, where Karachi is restored to its original five districts.
A Sindhri which has water amply running through Indus, and which doesn’t have water thieves at the head affecting the tail. Which doesn’t allow the violation of the 1991 accord. Which doesn’t allow any projects detrimental to lower riparian on the Indus. Where there is access to clean drinking water for all it’s peoples.
Where education is managed by a chief executive who doesn’t allow ghost schools nor discrimination between rural and urban Sindh. Which allows every student of Sindh equal access on merit in all it’s universities.
A Sindhri which will carry out a census and elections based on international best practices which are rigging free. Where the ruling elite will not just include the feudal elite but a younger professional educated middle class.
A Sindhri which will offer gainful employment on merit to all and turn the demographics into dividend versus disaster. A Sindhri which pays its people their just dues without them having to protest for them. A healthy Sindhri with all it’s peoples having access to good free health care. A Sindhri which will not tolerate violence against women or minorities.
Such a Sindhri is possible if Sindhis break away from the opium of ppp’s fake promises. The original ppp of Bhutto sahib and mortarma has been hijacked by looters. If you love them then don’t cause their spirits in the grave more pain. Save Sindhri from the waagoos.
Sindhri jaag. Garon thio. Time for Sindhis to dream and make their dreams come true. I sincerely believe that the above dream can only be realised by a leader such as nawaz sharif and his pmln. Thus if you all love your dharti, you have the courage to dream and break the opium chains, put your faith in pmln. I promise you we won’t let you down. Your dreams will become reality and khushali will be the order of the day versus a sindh sitting in pre moenjodaro ruins.
