GOD MADE THE COUNTRY AND MAN MADE THE TOWN
A PROPOSAL OF CELEBRATING PAINDO DAY: HA HA HA
Pakistan is embroiled in actual warfare with our enemy. On the other hand the Ideological warfare is on at the same time. There have been many funny movements in the past but the latest is indeed so funny as to give a fit of laughter all the time. All our life we heard the word PIND and that meant village, and we heard the word PAINDO and that meant inhabitant of a village. No degradation here. They are honourable hard working people and deserve to be treated with respect by all. That is egalitarianism. We believe in that. But their culture is not only basic, it is also vulgar in many contexts. Remember when your Aunt used to sniff at the shopkeeper in Anarkali by saying Paindo Rang (colours). God made the country but God also made man. And God entrusted man with moving forward in civilization. Achieving pinnacles of things. No status quo anywhere. Culture stopped in Pind ages ago.
All branches of knowledge have to have a start and epitome. Similarly other facets of culture. A rustic song is entertaining but a Tan Sen it will never be. You cannot expect Beethoven to be found in any village and even so, Beethovens are one of a kind. There are no higher thoughts expressed in Rustic songs. Similarly no aesthetics derived from simple colours and lines. Every facet of civilization has to have an USTAD or a MASTER at the top. That Ustad defines the civilization of that facet of culture. Even in his wildest imagination a Paindo cannot understand the sophistication of colours as used in Chughtai Art. Ideological warfare is meant to erase our superiority in anything. Everything mundane about us.
A stone is thrown in an environment and its gradually picks up that environment and becomes cultured with that surroundings. But Ideology is not that of a stone. The living organism that is HUMANKIND has been conditioned with ideas not merely of surroundings but the very IDEA OF EXISTENCE as defined by the LAWS OF ALLAH. We are an extension of the Laws of Allah, whether we actively accept them or not. We are nature bound to react to existence. Our Ideology is to move toward perfection in every sphere of life. Pakistan is an Ideological State and it sends fit of volcanic eruptions on those who oppose us. Suffice heritage of things is different from heritage of ideas. When people started moving at partition leaving homes and luxury behind, it was not meant to seek better things alone. They were moving with an Idea of a State, and that was the Idea of Pakistan.
The idea of Pakistan prevails and will prevail. No warfare, actual or Ideological can erase that from our existence. Foreign lobbies are seemingly so much worried about us that they are always giving us directions. Going back to village is keep us down forever. Our direction is Paradise, not Hell in any way.
