Get them to face the prosecution deemed, and pending long,
all those who injured the base of my country …..
Visiting a hospital to look up one of my relatives was admitted for delivery of her first baby. The male nurse brings routine medication in a tray and a pack of cigarettes in his pocket. The health care in this country is as good as multinational corporation’s global advertising spree.
In parking lot outside and lawns around the hospital half of the crowd waited to see their patients admitted inside and the other half was supporting the first half’s logistics. Out of the second half approximately 90% were busy inhaling the secondary smoke cause by the first half smoking.
The second para about is not about a mathematician’s riddle. Rather, it is a kind of very popular entertainment available for US 0.30 $ in shape of a gift product of Pakistan Tobacco Company protected by global tobacco corporations.
The little bird tells me, they have stopped selling cigarettes. Almost about ten years back a very healthy amount was spent on banners and billboards every corner streets of Islamabad, chanted we don’t sell cigarettes under eighteen. Now, very interesting heated discussions could be filmed on every cigarette shop. Birth certificate dates usually were argued whether the customer is under or over eighteen. However, the huge money spent on preventing youth buying cigarettes went to gutters, normally chocked due to hypocrisy and falsehood of the bureaucrats and politicians alike.
It’s so important to announce here ‘it’s a boy’ and that male nurse is now very happily promoted himself to an expert marijuana user. He is vital agent of a gang represents heroine coming from Afghanistan.
‘Leaders don’t create followers, they create leaders’: I suspect one day that male nurse would have trained several disciples before he succumb to Tuberculosis or to Lung Cancer. I don’t wish him to see this fat but my message to world cigarette mafia is to instantly stop cigarette manufacturing.
