Pakistan is currently experiencing a less than ideal scenario. The general populace has been engulfed in clouds of anguish. While none of this should be minimized, it’s always refreshing to find some optimism online. Using the microblogging site Twitter, a user posed the question, “As a Pakistani, name a single thing you are proud of?” There were a lot of responses, and some of them undoubtedly caused wistful, lingering grins.
