    But for this damned punjabi language...

    An excerp from article by Manjr Izaz in 'news'
    _______________________________________
    After giving a terse and agitated performance at the press conference at the Embassy of Pakistan, Washington, Foreign Minister Mr Abdul Sattar started enlightening some journalists on the side. He knew his press conference was "full of sounds and fury" signifying nothing. Therefore, to prove his intellectual mantel and to dispel the impression of being void of content, he laid down his vision of the new world.

    He described how Pakistan is culturally connected with Central Asia and why Pakistan's geographical situation is not indicative of its real character. He lamented and blamed the jihadi forces for creating a wedge between Pakistan and his dreamland, Central Asia. While explicating connection between his real homeland and dreamland, he stumbled upon an inner contradiction as to how a Punjabi from Norowal can be part of Central Asia and not of the Indus civilization. He spontaneously blurted out his deep inner contradiction at a high pitch: "There is one problem...we are stuck with the bloody Punjabi language".
