“Wealth is Health”

I cannot take it out of my mind how I went through some stressful days when my father got paralysis stroke and we were struck in the way half from the hospital due to heavy pour in the city. I remember how I and my mother ran out here and there pleading people to be merciful enough to take us to the nearest hospital. The moment still gives shiver down to my spine as I was ready to give anything in return for the lift to take my father to the hospital so that the treatment could start immediately.

Arguments on the indemnity bond taking place on almost all the programs going on air during the past few days, I couldn’t stop myself relating to that. Keeping myself in place of Maryam Nawaz, I could have never waited for a single moment to think about not to put anything foremost when it comes to the health and especially, the life of my father.

No matter what goes on in our lives we cannot disconnect ourselves with the current happenings of the country. The fact we can never deny. The departure, though, has been made but it still leaves a question behind. Health is wealth or wealth is health?

There is so much to say about the departure and at the same time nothing too. Right from the Adyala Jail to London, every move by Nawaz clears the picture of how the matters can be taken to beyond Justice when it comes to the wealth he possesses. Being former premier of Pakistan, Nawaz played his card and departed to seek the treatment he‘thinks’ he ‘deserves’.


In the condition that showed that Nawaz Sharif could’ve lost his life if not given the grant to leave for the necessary treatment, we wonder how he managed to survive till the time he flew for London. The air ambulance which took him to his desired place, had facilities more than a local hospital in Pakistan. His treatment in London will be something a nation under the pressure of high taxes due to the debts taken by the government cannot even imagine of.


Where in the world when the president of America is on the verge of impeachment for being accused to use the assets for his own benefits, here in our country we witness how easy is to escape using the assets of a country with this shaking economical condition. There, they are confident to get Justice that the guilty will be punished but unfortunately here we had the same confident about what has happened in the end.

Well, it is hard to blame anyone here in how Nawaz even after refusing the condition of indemnity bond managed to get a bail. We already knew what was going to happen where we see money as supreme power which governs the state, no matter what people say.

In the condition that showed that Nawaz Sharif could’ve lost his life if not given the grant to leave for the necessary treatment, we wonder how he managed to survive till the time he flew for London. The air ambulance which took him to his desired place, had facilities more than a local hospital in Pakistan. His treatment in London will be something a nation under the pressure of high taxes due to the debts taken by the government cannot even imagine of.

I was waiting for something that could happen to put the matter in the background when the prices of tomatoes reached to the hike. Engaging people in the matter of survival or of their own concerns, of course politicians do not go out to buy tomatoes for their families, will help to spread the discussion in them to see how to deal with it or to look for the replacement of tomatoes, they will soon forget why and how Nawaz managed to go out.

Wealth rules here too. Unfortunately, the tight rope of this inflation that we all are tied up with holds us so firmly and we cannot see the matters of the state. A game that has always been played with this nation to make them forget about the matter of state and worry about their daily lives. Dharna and Moulana’s role in this regard cannot be forgotten. He kept  the situation in a hip hop state with his LOL March and kept the minds well distracted. And the spices were added in the talk shows all around.

Well played! I must say. Wealth of the former prime Minister was way important than his health, hence proved.

It is very difficult to conclude this.  A lot can be said and written down on it as the story starts way back from now. We witnessed it this time too and had always been witnessing with or without being realizing how we are always tricked.

The departure is the best answer to the question that rose in our minds. But will we be treating in the same way every time is the question that remains.
