There appears to be immanent threat to human survival both in India and Pakistan,

there is acute water shortage both in Islamabad and New Delhi. a just saw a water tanker in Delhi surrounded by hundreds of women to get a pot of water. In Islamabad water is sold for 2000 rupees a tanker after a wait of 24 hours with Sifarish.  It seems both countries have to divert their attention to basic issues for their survival, F-16 and Mig-21 can not offer you life it can only destroy you rulers are interested in their commission.  I do not think , things are likely to cahnge, we have no electricity, gas, and no safety of life, and people are butchered in Quetta/Karachi like carrots. Our Raja rental is on a foreing visit so also Shariff brothers.

why and what they do on foreign land is a perplexed question I have been asking for too long. One wise man told me , You (me) fool, there must be some safe place to keep their looted stuff from people. May be, may be not, our Raja regrets he could not keep his promise to end load shedding but now that he is in driver's seat duly pushed by presidency, he is determined to end what ever he can and what ever it takes to do it. go ahead.
