I was going to write about the recent media interview of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by the stalwarts of the Pakistani electronic media. But I left that midway because she had nothing new or important to say. Nor did our media have anything new or important to ask. On the other hand, this rickshaw driver does have something important to say, even if it is not new.
Sad that Pakistan has become a place where living is too expensive, and death too cheap. Unfortunately, neither Hillary Clinton or our media pundits seem to understand that simple truth. This rickshaw driver does.
Yes, in case you are wondering, this is the same rickshaw (or rickshaw painter), whose wisdom we have featured on this blog before: here and here. But the refrain about the cost of living from rickshaw drivers as well as others (here, here, here, here) is not new.
