Pakistan Paindabad

Pakistan Independance Day


inde 1 Since the last few years we are more and more focused on Aug 14 as a great day in

our lives and I see a lot of young people around me sporting the

sabaz hilali parcham with pride as soon as August rolls around. There are the usual

light shows and parades and special programs and big companies spending millions


on their Azadi campaign. To my untrained yet Armed Forces bred patriotic eye the bond of patriotism seems to be

strengthening between our Country and its people. The more our people are exposed to the outside world the more

burning their desire is becoming to have our Country be on the same level of progress.

inde 2And it is gratifying to see the youth and the educated classes taking

an interest in Politics and so many people becoming more and more actively

involved in the process of trying to elevate the status of the less fortunate.

What we need to zero in on now is the concept behind the word Independence.

Generally it is taken to mean that we gained our independence from

the British Raj and were able to form our Pakistan to avoid being under the governing of the Hindus in a joint India.

What we fail to understand is that it is a lot more than the formation of a

Country in a region.

  • Independence means that we are free to take our own decisions.
  • Independence means that we are now free to shape ourselves and our future generations in a manner of our choice.Independence means we can behave in whatever manner we deem fit.


inde 7On Aug 14, 1947 our nation gained independence along with every

individual alive at that time and who has been born to Pakistan since and

will be born till this great country stands which will be forever In Sha Allah.

And that is where independence comes in play. We are born a free citizen in

a Nation of free individuals of a Sovereign Muslim Country.


The question is are we behaving in the independent manner that will reflect our status as an independent Individual?

  • Every time we roll down the car window and throw out a tissue or a wrapper or some other trash are behaving as a person of an independent Nation?
  • Every time we break a traffic signal just because we can, are behaving as a person of an independent Nation?
  • Every time we trash Pakistan in a gathering as an unsafe and unfit place for us to raise our kids, are behaving as a person of an independent Nation?
  • Every time we look and walk away when someone is being held at gun point and robbed because we are afraid for our own security, are behaving as a person of an independent Nation?


The question is very real. Are we behaving in the manner of independent individuals?



inde 6Are we playing our part in ensuring that this beautiful Pakistan of ours will

prosper and be a safe haven for our coming generations?

Are we contributing to our community and society at large to form a better



We don’t have to stop leading our lives as we know them to become a good Nation.

All we need to do is take owner ship of our Country and behave like decent independent Pakistanis by keeping the

interest of our Country in mind at all times.

If we are a small business owner all we need to do is ensure that our production does not pollute the environment.

If we are a housewife all we need to do is ensure that our house garbage is not thrown in the street outside

If we are driving we just need to ensure that we don’t throw any trash on the road.

If we are teenagers we just need to make sure we do not paint graffiti on public walls.

If you are an educated person take out 10 minutes a day to impart some soft skill or valuable life hack to those

around you who don’t have the same benefit of an education

And so on and so forth. Little gestures on a personal level will result in big changes on the Nations front. These little

habits inculcated in our children today will ensure greatness for our Country tomorrow.

So let’s all truly understand the meaning of Independence and act as responsible Independent Individuals of our

great Country

    Point very well made. Unless and until we start the change In attitude within ourselves first we cannot become a nation. We will remain individualists as against nationalists . Keep it up Tvinkal

    An Article on “Pakistan Paindabad”, by Tvinkal is a vision to bring a change in individual’s knowledge, attitude, and perception in shaping a new Pakistan. It is need of hour that every Pakistani citizen must display a sense of responsibility in day to day activities. And create a society with good atmosphere depicting faith, unity, and discipline in their daily life.
    I appreciate Tvinkal’s views and ideas, if realized by every Pakistanis will certainly bring a major paradigm shift in way of society’s life. One day we will witness a more prosperous and educated Pakistan.
    I expect Tvinkal will continue to write such an informative and visionary articles. THANKS.
