pakistan and the deathly hallows

i sit here watching 'the most respespectable show' while half my country is destroyed by floods while the other half living in fear from dengue and i cant stop wondering what went wrong. year in year out all i can see is devastation and destruction, cries of the ones whose children were killed by suicide bombers, moans of the ones whose men were killed in Waziristan, tears of those whose houses were submerged in water and they sat atop broken litter and junk, their animals dead and homes left as twigs and mud. the earth quake of 2006, the floods of 2010, the dengue of 2011? where is the 'pakistani dream'? where are all the promises that were made? Political strife, cultural disorder, social corruption and on top of all that natural disasters? where is this country heading to? or is it that like illnesses it has to get to the worst condition before it becomes better? i am neither too sure nor too optimistic and to be honest its not just me; we as a nation have lost all hope. J.K Rowling said "a grim mood has gripped the nation" in one of her books and i find that to be very appropriate here, are the death eaters taking over? is it 'voldemort' who is responsible for all this distress. in our case the voldemort might very well be the 'you-know-which-country' and the death eaters our own leaders under the 'imperius' curse.
This is high time that some one takes over and brings about some sanity, its time that things start getting better, its time that we stop suffering. But how? by writing notes? by talking boisterously in tv shows? i am afraid not. It time that we stop talking and start doing, ironic it may seem that while I am writing this article i ask you for action, But sadly thats how it is. I believe that the 'order of phoenix' has to step in now and take control of the things. we need the 'cricket captain' to step in and solve it all for us probably.
