Redefining Identity is something that Pakistan and Pakistani desperately need at this time. The 60% of the population has a duty on there shoulder and these men and women on duty are the Youth of Pakistan. There are few who are constantly trying to improve and heading to the target. The video below tells what youth in Lahore (Pakistan) doing to revolutionize and redefine the identity. I am thankful to FiveRivers Technologies who made this video and who are working to put Lahore on the global map. I shared this Video on my social networks and the kind of feedback I received in the form of a comment made me to write this post and thougt to keep this video at my favorite place online. Before looking at the video I would like to make you read the comment that i recieved from my friend (the social networking frined) Bilal Aslam:
I wasn’t born in Pakistan, nor raised in an orthodox religious household. I was lucky enough to be born to parents who understood the meaning of true religious affairs, culture and the difference between the two. I did live in Pakistan for about 4 years of my entire life, that’s when I had to best days of my life, it had glimpses from Bryan Adam’s song of Summer of ’69 except for it was more like Summer of ’99. Also did most of the things you probably see in the movies today, played out Ferris Bueller sans the hooky part, and destroying a Ferrari, albeit had a perfect opportunity to blow off a retro Willys Jeep; yes they have those in Pakistan, along with quite a few jems like I personally saw a guy who owns a Motorcycle repair shop on GT Road in Lahore who at time owned 3 vintage Harley one of them from the 30′s era, he reffered to that as pre-independence.
People party in Pakistan, they get tipsy, just not drunk and rule of drinking amongst freinds is, “If you don’t drink, no one forces you” at least thats how it was with me.
I can go on and on but this video is a better example of how Pakistan really is and how it is portrayed in media. Ofcourse there is some truth to what media shows but there is a lot more that is keep hidden. I would like to thank +Rai Muhammad Azlan Shahid for sharing this video with me and thousands of others.
