Pakistani Ministers’ Expenses: Kal Tak by Javed Chaudhry

Javed Chaudhary – host of Kal Tak program in Pakistan – describes the lavish lifestyle, fancy privileges, and exorbitant expenses of federal ministers in Pakistan. The country spends nearly Sixty Million (6 crore) rupees annually on the upkeep of each federal minister while devoting less than Rs 200 and Rs 150 annually on health and education, respectively, of each Pakistani citizen. To add insult to injury, despite being an impoverished third-world country utterly dependent on foreign aid and loans, Pakistan has the largest cabinet in the world! Per Javed, an astonishing 92 persons enjoy ministerial rank and privileges in the Zardari-led government.

Our Elders Need To Come Forward BY Javed Chaudhry

We need to follow Nelson Mandela’s example. At 92 years of age, the man is a legend, respected worldwide both for his diligent struggle for democracy and all the hardships he suffered during his 27 years of imprisonment. But what Mandela is most respected for is his power to forgive. He forgave all those who were unjust to him and his people for over 350 years when he came into a position of power as president of South Africa. The second step that won him approval was his retirement from politics in 1994. Mandela, had he so chosen, could have stayed in power till his death but he wanted a democracy, not the rule of one individual.

In 2007, he celebrated his 89th birthday and surprised everyone by laying the foundation for ‘The Elders’ organisation, whose members were famous elderly personalities from across the globe. These included former US president Jimmy Carter, former secretary-general of the UN Kofi Annan and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Mandela had hoped the meeting of these greatly experienced, observant and wise people would help in analysing issues and finding solutions to carve paths to progress and peace. He strongly believed that if the elders did not play their role, the world would plunge into a major crisis.

Mandela’s success is evident from the recent Fifa World Cup hosted by South Africa this summer. The event now shows that the country, which barely a decade ago was beset by a potential racial war, is worthy of hosting, and successfully at that, a world-class event.

We are in dire need of a similar organisation in Pakistan. The country’s elders, including retired army generals, former officers of the Foreign Office, retired politicians, members of the business community, sportsmen, teachers and scientists, need to unite and form similar organisations.

The government would do well to tap this resource and benefit from their experience and knowledge by implementing their suggestions and solutions. If this is done properly, I am certain many of our problems will start getting resolved.

Take Karachi as a prime example. For the first time in history, all of the city’s political stakeholders, the MQM, the PPP and the ANP, are in power but the city continues to face tension. This week alone, dozens were killed and hundreds injured as property was burned and most of the city was brought to a standstill. To top it all, the Rangers, police personnel and intelligence agencies were barely visible. Our nation’s elders need to come forward and answer this question.

The country is suffering its worst floods in over 80 years, millions have been affected and displaced, and infrastructure has been ruined on a massive scale. Why was the government unable to inform the people of the threat in time for them to evacuate to safety?

Millions of people were suffering while the president had lunch at his palace in Normandy, France. The nation is in a state of mourning and he prepares for the ‘political launch’ of his son Bilawal in Britain. The western media is heavily criticising him and raising a vital question: Is this the president of a country that is being drowned by floods?

If we still extend our hand of friendship to people like David Cameron despite their anti-Pakistan rhetoric, we will lose the self-respect which is necessary for survival. Come forward, our elders. The country awaits you.

Diabetes is very common these days there are two types of diabetes:
a-  which is caused by the abnormal reaction in which the immune systemdestroys insulin secreting cells in the pancreas. It is very common in childhood.
b- which causes are less understood. However, genetics and overweight are important factors. 


Diabetes of Type 1 is usually caused by some viral diseases which affect the immune system of the child, though the genetic factor of one parent suffering from type 1 diabetes may have some effect, however most children who develop type 1 diabetes do not have parents withdiabetes. As for Type 2 diabetes it is the increase in food intake which leads to overweight and obesity as well as the living of a sedentary lifestyle and it mostly affects adults.

Both types of diabetes have the same symptoms where there is excessive urination which account for the thirst and dry mouth but also for the insufficient sleep at night because of the need to go to the toilet. This state is paralleled by the lack of energy; blur vision and quick 
weight loss, abdominal pain, deep breathing and acetone smell breath may also consist of symptoms of diabetes.

While the Type 1 diabetes have to submit themselves to the burden of insulin injection, self monitoring and the care of their insulin supplies and equipments, though the Type 2 diabetes have the need to control their blood glucose, their blood pressure and their blood lipids these may be done through medication, diet and exercise but sometimes in addition theType 2 diabetes have to make insulin injections as the Type 1’s diabetes with all the inconvenience attached to it. As for treatment by insulin Dr Stoppard states that “Glucose from the blood stream is the main source of energy for the body’s cells. Its absorption is enabled by thepancreas, which produces insulin. Among people suffering from diabetes mellitus, a build up of toxic by-products, like acetone with a pear drop smell, in the body occurs. This is caused by the use of other sources of energy than glucose. Hence the unused glucose accumulates in the blood and urine, causing high blood sugar levels. 1 in 10 diabetes depends on self administered injections of insulin and the rest take oral drug and are careful about their diet. These treatments are vital in preventing the symptoms of high blood sugar level like frequent passing of urine, thirst and loss of weight as well as complications leading to peripheral nerve disorders which may affect the eyes, kidneys, the cardiovascular system. The weakening of the immune system may also cause infections like cystitis.” 

What is Dengue Virus Symptoms & Causes

Dengue is an old time virus generated fever. It is a febrile illness that affects infants, young children and adults. It is acute febrile diseases which occur in the tropics, can be life-threatening, and are caused by four closely related viruses. 

It is also known as break bone fever. It occurs widely in the South Asia, East Asia, South American and Africa region. Unlike malaria,dengue is just as prevalent in the urban districts of its range as in rural areas. Dengue is transmitted to humans by the bite of an Aedes mosquito which feed during the day time. This Aedes mosquito infected with any one of the fourdengue viruses. People infected with dengue can pass on the infection only through mosquitoes or blood products and only while they are still febrile. The classic dengue fever lasts about two to seven days, with a smaller peak of fever at the trailing end of the disease. Dengue also known by other names, including "breakbone" or "dandy fever." Victims of dengue often have contortions due to the intense joint and muscle pain, hence the name breakbone fever.
