Bob Dylan – The Times They Are A-Changin’

 

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside
And it is ragin’.
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin’.
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin’.
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’.

Current Economic Crisis – Simply Explained

I got a very nice explanation of the current crisis by email , thought that I
should share.I don’t know who the original writer is but it is very well explained 🙂
_____________________________________________
Phajja is the proprietor of a Siri-Paya and Nehari Shop in Lahore. Sales are
low and, in order to increase them, he comes up with a plan to allow his
customers to eat now and pay later. He keeps track of the meals consumed on
a ledger.
Word gets around and as a result increasing numbers of customers flock to P
hajja’s shop. Phajja’s suppliers are delighted and are very willing to sell
more and more raw materials for the meals he prepares. Phajja shows them his
ledger of receivables and they extend him credit.
A young and dynamic customer service consultant at the local bank recognizes
these customer debts as valuable future assets and gives Phajja a credit
line and then increases Phajja’s borrowing limit.
Taking advantage of his customers’ freedom from immediate payment
constraints, Phajja jacks up the prices of his Nehari and Siri-Paye.
Customers don’t mind as they are not required to pay on the spot. Sales
volume increases massively; Banks and suppliers lend more; Phajja opens more
outlets. He sees no reason for undue concern since he has the debts of the
customers as collateral.
At the bank’s corporate headquarters, expert bankers recognize Phajja’s
customer loans as assets and transform these customer assets into BONDS.
These negotiable instruments are given exotic names such as SIRIBOND,
PAYABOND, MAGHAZBOND AND BONGBOND. These securities are then listed on the
Stock Exchange and traded on markets worldwide. No one really understands
what the names mean and how the securities are guaranteed but, nevertheless,
as their prices continuously climb, the securities become top-selling items.
One day, although the prices are still climbing, a credit risk manager of
the bank decides that the time has come to demand payment of one of the
debts incurred by Phajja. Phajja in turn asks his clients to pay up.
One by one they refuse; the clients cannot pay back the debts. Phajja
refuses to serve them any more. The clients stop coming.
Phajja is really screwed now. He cannot fulfill his loan obligations and
therefore claims bankruptcy. All Bonds drop in price by between 80 to 95%.
The suppliers of Phajja, having granted generous payment due dates and
having invested in the securities are faced with similar problems. The meat
supplier defaults on payment to the sheep and cattle supplier and claims
bankruptcy. The atta supplier is taken over by a competitor; Pajja lays off
the cook and staff. Bankruptcies soar, unemployment mushrooms.
The bank that lent the money in the first place is set to collapse. It is
saved by the Government following dramatic round-the-clock consultations by
leaders from the governing political parties with Phajja commuting back and
forth in his Executive jet and Mercedes 500SEL, brokering the deal.
The funds required to save the economic collapse are obtained by a tax
levied on the citizens, most of whom do not eat Nehari or Siri-paye.
Now substitute Phajja with USA or GM/FORD or any US Bank…….

Success of Long March : Role of Nawaz Sharif

From the moment Nawaz said “ the wind of change has started blowing” outside his residence in model town the success of long march was guaranteed.Nawaz was at peak of all his political might.1237140007636

On the morning of 15th Lahore was completely ceiled and the massive numbers of security persons,house arrest of Aitzaz and Nawaz,it was apparently looking that this would be a march that wont even cross GPO.This was confirmed by the crackdown of police on a small peaceful protest at GPO.But then something happened that doesn’t normally happen in Pakistan politics.Against all odds Nawaz came out gave a heartwarming speech and the success of long march was ensured.The way Nawaz and his followers broke away from police barricades in model town and kalma Chowk it was apparent that no matter how many police government deploys it wont matter,and by the time Nawaz had reached Ichra Long march was a massive success and the Halls of power in Islamabad had started shaking.

It is first time in Pakistan that Popular people leader has stood against the government not for his Power but for the people of Pakistan.The sheer size of Mob Nawaz amassed was enough for the government to restore the judges.

It must be said that this was a lawyers movement from day one and Imran Khan and Qazi and there parties played a massive role if the 2 year long movement,but one can’t help but say that the killing blow was dealt by Nawaz Sharif.

This movement also showed that peoiple of pakistan are alive and wont be bullied no longer by the oppressive regimes and governments.Success of movements like these are turning points in nation history thus lets all hope that this movement brings a positive change in Pakistan and takes us towards a better Future.

Kal Aaj Aur Kal

Restoration of Judges.A historical day for Pakistan:)
