ITS JUST AN OPTIMISTIC GUESS BY A CITIZEN OF PAKISTAN.
I was just thinking few minutes ago while i was listening to the radio and set to wait for one and half hour more before electricity would come, that the Government of Pakistan may be conducting a research on how well or bad the loadshedding impacts student performance.
You must have all heard your seniors saying that all the time you/your brother/ etc is sitting in front of computer and not studying but playing games all the time, so Government of Pakistan composed of backward thinkers may have devised a cunning plan to really check whether restricting access to computer will change the study habbits of students and improve their performance!!!
If this is true than we should pray that this research finishes soon!!!
Wrong! Economies do not work like this. This nasty “experiment” (if ever conducted) is costing this country a lot and pushing us to cave age.
Couple of centuries ago, when electricity was not the source of main energy, the countries which used to get more sunny days and less natural disasters, were able to produce more crops and were wealthy and prosperous countries. That includes sub-continent (that times India).
Now it’s changed to electricity, whether produce by hydroelectricity, solar, wind, fossil fuel (oil/gas/coal), nuclear, thermal or whatever, in the end, it is converted to electricity and delivered to where it is needed. The countries which are able to efficiently convert God given “sunny days” into energy into useful products (crops and other products from factories) are still prosperous. If Pakistan get full 24/7/365 days of electricity at cheap rates then we can also be a prosperous nation. But that day will never come because if common people can fill their stomach and can have basic needs then they’ll question the overlords (government; legislators, executive branch and judiciary) about their spending and corruption which overlords do not want.
Trust me, it will never end because it is artificially created.
By the way, your “experiment” is wrong again, sitting in front of computers is NOT bad. If thousands of young people will sit in front of computers “chatting” or other stuff then who knows one of them will be next “Steve Jobs”, “Bill Gates” or “John Carmack” from Pakistan? But this will never happen, because computer is an evil thing (at least according to mullahs). Why not we conduct this experiment? Why not we let youth of (at least) 1 million sit in front of computers all day long and let them do whatever they want to do and let’s see does a new “Steve Jobs”, “Bill Gates” or “John Carmack” (or any other legendary programmer) pop out of that million youth and turn this country in to a non-terrorist state? But that will be wrong, because we are a terrorist state producing only terrorists. Maybe load-shedding is one of causes that let youth to think on useless things and read pamphlets and join “meetings” in mosques and madrassahs which lead them to convert to terrorist. This “experiment” (with load-shedding as one of the factor) is going at full swing and we are getting good at it, producing more and more terrorists.
