It is a Green morning, that is what I was thinking this morning while I was looking out of my window when the colours of spring were all over the trees across the road. They were green and dancing with the air, so I was not alone to enjoy and celebrate Pakistan Day today. Yes, its 23rd March and the biggest feature of the day, for many people, is the quarter final of ICC Cricket World Cup where Pakistan is playing against West Indies, former 2 time world champions and known as black windstorm. It is an important match and all the best wishes for the men in Green. However, there is a significance of this day in our history. 71 years ago, our elders decided what their goal is and how they will gain it, it was given the name Pakistan Resolution out of sarcasm but it was accepted with open arms by the Muslims of this region.
