    Just want to point out one thing, which sort of bugs me everytime I hear the quote about what you can do for your country attributed to JFK. Khalil Gibran wrote that more than three decades before JFK for Lebanon (Although JFK did make it famous).
    Khalil Gibran in 1925 said the following in a work titled “The New Frontier”:

    “Are you a politician asking what your country can do for you or a zealous one asking what you can do for your country? If you are the first, then you are a parasite; if the second, then you are an oasis in a desert.” Khalil Gibran

    Beautiful and thought-provoking, Pakistan and Pakistanis need to launch a concerted effort to reward and exalt those who bring milk, and a similar effort to expose those who bring water. There needs to be societal pressure to do good, for good deeds to be visibly rewarded and for social fairness to prevail.
