Mother Teresa was a symbol of peace and hope. What happened in Orrisa yesterday, where hindus were murdering christians, it is called barbarity.
Well, Iqbal was a great poet, Jinnah was a great statesman. Dr Abdul Salam of Pakistan won the noble prize in physics. We still have scientists that have mastered the nuclear technology, making Pakistan the ‘first and so far only muslim nuclear power’. Now again, its your same story of “India is bigger and better and…. etc” While we in Pakistan do not believe in self praise.

Well there are 1.1 billion Indians,I am not like that if you notice my posts they are all reactive while bringing out comparisons in the field of economics i didn’t start this post by talking about pak inflation and corruption etc you did,though lets just can it here as a misunderstanding.fine?

If you want to make comparisons, do it with countries like Brazil or China that match the Indian market. India has massive corruption which is an obstacle to full economic growth.
Also, do you want me to start naming countless ventures started by Pakistani expats in Britain, France, US, Canada etc? It will be a long list. You have named adobe, there are Pakistani resellers in US that provide channel support to firms like Adobe Systems. All you can boast about is probably Mittal steel or Tata. Well, I dont want to take away anything from Indians, no doubt the progress made in business has been remarkable.
The problem is, why do you Indians always take every opportunity to do comparisons with Pakistan and say “well, we have done this- and we have done that”.

Indian business accumen is an order of magnitude better than pakistanis do you have even one private sector company comparable to Tata,reliance,infosys,wipro etc or do your expats found and/or run companies like Arcelormittal,citigroup,adobe systems,pepsi,vodaphone etc ? but this is neither here nor their this is about CT being cancelled/postponed which i don’t like because i love cricket.for once i am on your side!
Indian inferiority complex vis a vis pakistan ROFL!

Your thinking shows an ever increasing inferiority complex Indians have. What makes you think Pakistanis lack business acumen, why is there rising inflation in India then? Pakistanis are best CAs and economists.

I am completely surprised to see South Africa refuse to play in Pakistan, the level of organized crime in South Africa is very high. Also, not to mention the xenophobic violence against foreigners in South Africa which took place couple of months back, but do all sporting events come to a halt in South Africa? Recently, the city of Calgary in Canada announced an expensive budget to deal with gang violence and crime this summer. Fact is, Pakistan has some problems like any other country, but the people are friendly and its really unfortunate how some cricket teams have taken it too far and ruined what could have otherwise been a wonderful tournament. If they could have come to Pakistan, Karachi and Lahore would have been very safe venues for them. They could have stayed in 5 Star hotels with ample security, escorting them to stadiums for matches along with pratice sessions. It was as simple, also the teams could have easily enjoyed some of the cultural attractions in the cities.
