A young lady entered the departure lounge at airport and, there being still 45 minutes to boarding, purchased a pack of cookies and a magazine. She took a seat by the side of a table and started reading. A man came and sat on the vacant seat across the table and also started reading his own magazine. After some time the lady took out a cookie from the pack lying on the table and ate that. She noticed that, after her, the man also took out a cookie from the same bag and ate. She didn’t like it but kept quiet. When the lady took out the second cookie, the man also again took one. This continued and the young lady started burning from inside but kept quiet because she didn’t like to create a scene. Ultimately, one cookie was left and the young lady peeped through edge of her eye what would that man do. The man took out the last cookie, made it into two halves and gave one-half to the young lady. She got so boiled up that she stood up and went away.
After boarding, the young lady opened her handbag for something and found that her pack of cookies was in her bag and she had been eating the man’s cookies whom she had cursed so much.

What a lesson !
People who inhabit Pakistan now and are called Pakistanis usually curse the Muslim rulers who ruled India before India’s occupation by British for not having given any attention to education and are always full praise for the British. Here is an historical fact which is not expected to be in the knowledge of Pakistani barring very few.
An excerpt from the address to the British Parliament on February 2, 1835, by Lord Macaulay (the first Law Member of India’s Governor-General’s Council).
“I have traveled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief, such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such caliber that I don’t think we would ever conquer this country unless we break the very backbone of this nation which is her spiritual and cultural heritage and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation”.
The above statement tells us very clearly how our ancient efficient and effective system of education and morality was destroyed by the British rulers and for what purpose.
