Pakistan is in the throes of one crisis after another. In fact we have been stalked by social issues right from the start. The confusion comes from the manner in which our social systems have been organized. We have never tried to work out the social systems prevalent in this country. During the period that one was involved in the management of this country at the highest bureaucratic level one was given the opportunity to visit various countries and to interact with the leadership at levels that are not normally available to bureaucrats. In fact when playing cricket (as a member of the Pakistan cricket team to India in 1960-61) one had the opportunity to meet the Indian Political leadership that included the President and the Prime Minister of India, and the second string that was being developed for stepping into the shoes of the leadership of the day.
