Why Engineers & Scientist Remain Poor

Engineers and scientists can never earn as much salary as business executives and salespeople who are much less educated. This can be supported by a mathematical equation: 

We know that:

1: Knowledge is Power

2: Time is Money                                           

As every engineer knows: 

 Work

——– = Power

Time 

Since Knowledge = Power, and Time = Money 

Work

——– = Knowledge

Money 

or 

Work

————— = Money

Knowledge 

Thus, regardless of the amount of Work done, as knowledge increases, money decreases and, if Knowledge decreases, Money increases. 

Conclusion: The Less you Know, the More Money you get

Wretched American Military and Dumb Pakistan Army Officers

Here are excerpts from “The ordeal of Mullah Zaeef” by Ayaz Amir, published in Dawn of September 22, 006. Complete article can be read by clicking on the title above or writing the following URL in your browser  http://www.dawn.com/weekly/ayaz/20060922.htm 

WE know, to our lasting shame, how our overlords, dazzled by American power, and afraid of God knows what, handed over the ex-Taliban ambassador, Mullah Abdus Salam Zaeef, to the Americans in January 2002 — in violation of every last comma of international law.

But until now we have not been privy to the details: how exactly did the handing-over take place? Now to satisfy our curiosity, and perhaps outrage our feelings, comes Mullah Zaeef’s own account, published in Pashto and parts of which have been translated into Urdu by the Express newspaper.

To say that the account is eye-opening would be an understatement. It is harrowing and mind-blowing. Can anyone bend so low as our government did? And can behaviour be as wretched as that displayed by American military personnel into whose custody Zaeef was given?

On the morning of January 2, 2002, three officials of a secret agency arrived at Zaeef’s house in Islamabad with this message: “Your Excellency, you are no more excellency.” One of them said, no one can resist American power, or words to that effect. “ America wants to question you. We are going to hand you over to the Americans so that their purpose is served and
Pakistan is saved from a big danger.”

Zaeef could have been forgiven for feeling stunned. From the “guardians of Islam” this was the last thing that he expected, that for the sake of a few “coins” (his words) he would be delivered as a “gift” to the Americans. Under heavy escort he was taken to Peshawar, kept there for a few days and then pushed into his nightmare. Blindfolded and handcuffed, he was driven to a place where a helicopter was waiting, its engines running. Someone said, “Khuda hafiz” (God preserve you). There were some people speaking in English. “Suddenly I was pounced upon and flung on the ground, kicked and pummelled from all sides. So sudden was the attack that I was dumbfounded… My blindfold slipping, I saw a line of Pakistani soldiers to one side and some vehicles including one with a flag…My clothes were stripped from my body and I was naked but ‘my former friends’ kept watching the spectacle. The locks on their lips I can never forget… The (Pakistani) officers present there could at least have said he is our guest, in our presence don’t treat him like this. Even in my grave I will not be able to forget that scene.”

These are the standard-bearers of human rights and freedom from whom we are supposed to take lessons in democracy. Why does the Bush administration and its acolytes in Britain so loath President Ahmedinejad of Iran and President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela? Because they look America in the eye and are not afraid of speaking the truth.

The US covered itself in a garb of hurt innocence when the Sep 11, 2001, attacks took place. But using those attacks as a pretext, it has done so much harm around the world, especially in the Middle East and our region, that its hands are covered in blood.

Indeed, if we are at all interested in sustainable development, we’ll have to think of something better and less destructive than unbridled capitalism. And something less arrogant than the new imperialism to which our region is being exposed.

And who was the senior officer, with a flag on his jeep? My course-mate Ehsan — 41st PMA — was then heading ISI, the organization in overall command of such sensitive matters.

A Chase

Can you imagine this happening on the interstate?


 

Are you scared?

It could be you if you dare it!

But it is simple

Fill light gas in missile shaped balloons

Tie balloons to car with different lengths of strings

Drive on an interstate like a bat out of shades

And

Watch people freak out!!!!

Mr Jinnah and Pakistanis

On September 11, 1948, the Founder of Pakistan, Mr Muhammad Ali Jinnah, known as Great Leader (Quaid-e-Azam) by Muslims of subcontinent Indo-Pakistan, passed away from this mortal world. The right way to remember him on this day, apart from reciting Qur’aan and offering prayers for him which nearly all the People of Pakistan do, is to follow wise advices given by him from time to time. For the last few years it is being propagated by a few people who, trying to behave modern, consider Qur’aan to be a book for ancient times, that Mr Jinnah wanted to make Pakistan a secular state and not an Islamic state. The present administration of Pakistan also, to please their masters, is trying to make education secular while they are practically doing nothing for the welfare of Pakistan nation. 

Below is an excerpt from the speech delivered by Mr Jinnah on November 27, 1947 at the forum of All Pakistan Educational Conference.

 “Under foreign rule for over a century, in the very nature of things, I regret, sufficient attention has not been paid to the education of our people, and if we are to make any real, speedy and substantial progress, we must earnestly tackle this question and bring our educational policy and program on the lines suited to the genius of our people, consonant with our history and culture, and having regard to the modern conditions and vast developments that have taken place all over the world.  

Education does not merely mean academic education, and even that appears to be of a very poor type. What we have to do is to mobilize our people and build up the character of our future generations. There is immediate and urgent need for training our people in the scientific and technical education in order to build up future economic life, and we should see that our people undertake scientific commerce, trade and particularly, well-planned industries. Also I must emphasize that greater attention should be paid to technical and vocational education.  

In short, we have to build up the character of our future generations which means highest sense of honor, integrity, selfless service to the nation, and sense of responsibility, and we have to see that they are fully qualified or equipped to play their part in the various branches of economic life in a manner which will do honor to Pakistan.”
