These two photographs – both taken during the recent visit of the Pakistan Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani to Afghanistan to meet with Afghan Prime Minister Hamid Karzai – are rather interesting.

Although this is most likely just the magic of the camera at the moment it was clicked and signifies nothing of import, one wonders what could be done with these with some creative speculative energy. The body language captured in these is suggestive, although one is not sure suggestive of what. In the spirit of good humor, one wonders what the two are saying to each other, or what they might be thinking about each other, at this time.

Any ideas?

    Funy pics.
    In the first pic, Gillani is saying: Yaar, ainna ghussa na kar, hun hans lay.
    Karzai saying: MeiN tay laraaN ga, laraaN ga, laraaN ga.

    When I opened the page I saw pictures of Karzai and Gillani with the caption at the bottom, ‘Smart Donkeys:Photoshopped or Real?’Actualy this was for the next post.I thought you had already explained the conversation between the two.

    Well said khurram. But do no say it loud, the actual donkeys may mind it that you are comparing them with these puppets of the US :)
    What a mess these two people have out of their respective countries? A total mockery of democracy, to say the least:

    Gillani : I am powerless but you are useless.

    Karzai : I don’t trust you Pakistanis.

    Karzai: [pointing at the light signal] Yaar, it’s green. So we can cross the intersection.

    Gilani: [stopping Karzai with his hand]. No, are you crazy? Wait till Amreekka says it’s ok to go.

    Next scene & story:
    Karzai: [explaining] Sorry, yaar, after all, we’re both Khotas, so I sometimes make stupid mistakes.

    Gilani: [Nervous and sweating] Oh my God! I almost thought you’d cross and get us both in trouble. Look: people around are screaming with laughter, and they’re shouting: Khotay! Khotay! Khotay! ….

    First photo

    Karzai: We are going to get rid of radicalism and extremism from Afghanistan by the end of this year.

    Gilani: Control Pa Ji Control.

    Second Photo

    Gilani giving a sheepish smile.

    Karzai: Amreeka has agreed to push all Talibans to Waziristan since you insist so much on stopping drone attacks. OK, so keep smiling otherwise people will notice your wet pants.

    karzai— Atlast Americans are leaving by end of this year as per Obama.
    Gillani—But all those war veterans cannot be employed by XE and then how to accomodate them in Pakistan without loosing those green packs?

    karzai;– Now the opium trade is going to be in my hands, how about the transit gillani saheb?

    Karzai: You are as big a puppet, Yousuf, as I am, if not bigger. You should know what happens behind the curtains.

    Well for the 2nd Pic, Karzai advises to Gillani:

    Munnay Meri Maano tu Ye War On Terror ka Raag Alapnay ka Koi Faida Nahi. Ye Taliban ney tu Goro Ki Bajadi aur ye ab Unse Muzakrat Ki Bheek Mang rahay hain tu tum Kis Khet ki Moli Ho! Meri Mano tu Americano ki Tarha tum bhe Unse Dialogue Karo aur Sakoon se Raho Warna Ye American tumhari aur Zardari k Aise Bajaye gey k Puri Dunya Suney Gi.

    Gillani: Hain Sir Ji! Tussi Theek Kah Rahe Ho?

    Two puppets in one show. In public, they dont say anything other what they are told to say by the BIG BOSS. So rest assure it must be something sensible.
