What a Waste of the Most Valuable Pakistan Resource!

Today, the Television has gone Global and its power to influence policies, people and culture is steadily mounting. The impact of the Television is so profound that there is nothing to compare with it. In the West, it is millions per minute adverts.
Yet, can you imagine the pace (or lack of) of Pakistani soap opera dramas on ARY, Geo, PTV. Minutes go by and the same face close-up remains on the screen. Sometime the close-up is so close that you can either count the pimples on the face or hair in the nostrils. They show a person walking into the room so slowly that if you leave the show and come back half-an-hour later the scene does not change. There is very little use of sound. Most of the time, the close-up faces are looking upwards or with bursting eyes.
Why do you want to heap frustration, depression and hopelessness on a nation that is striving to come out of poverty and misery with dramas 24 hours of the day that show nothing but sobbing and crying instead of some light-hearted humor or dramas like they used to be in the past – Ankahi, Aangan Tehra, Taal Matol and Tanhayian?

Pakistani American Leadership Center
PAL-C's commitment to building awareness and educating Members of Congress on issues important to Pakistani Americans have made it a reputable and recognized name on Capitol Hill with an office right next door to the Heritage Foundation. Without the continued support of the community to such an important cause, PAL-C will not be able to reach its ultimate potential – a loss that will affect each and every Pakistani American today and in the future.
