The Case of the Missing Spine -Spiagra

If anybody knows where the Mian Nawaz Sharif who took the historic step of May 28, 1998, without any fear resides presently, please do inform us of his whereabouts immediately -- or alternatively, find us someone with a little more spine. Ikram Sehgal

Dear Mr. Sehgal:

I share your sorrow for Mr. Sharif's lackof spine. But in all fairness, why single out the PML (Zia)'s Sharif? From top to bottom - Imran Khan, Asif Zardari of the hand written will, Altaf Hussain, and countless Khans, Maliks, Chaudharies that have been inlficted on Paksitani politics have shown this lack of resolve.

If there was a Viagra for "spine" - Spiagra then it should be force fed to these leaders who hide behind platitudes and vain speeches.

Hum yeh kardaiN gay: Hum woh kardaiN gay.

All the while sitting in well guarded fortesses, with sugar, flour and generators. Meanwhile the masses are left to the cities and the battlefields.

Pity the poor, pity the disenfranchised, pity the poor fauji wittingly and unwittingly being used as a fodder.

I must admit there is one place where there is no dearth of spine. In the media and blogosphere there is a lot of spine - of the talking variety.
