My Eureka Moment

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has summoned his core foreign policy team and a few other key cabinet members and party officials.

My Maryam can surpass the popularity of Hina Rabbani Khar, declares the Prime Minister. Every time I travel, and wherever I go, she will go with me, especially she can collect the latest sunglasses and bags. This is very important because you will recall more than half of the time Hina was getting mentioned for her bags and eyeglasses. He he he … so what else! She could not even put herself on her own election posters, and Ghulam Rabbani’s photo was displayed. I used to wonder why my brother Asif Zardari is appointing such low recognition foreign minister, but little I realized that she has a very good collection of bags and eyeglasses.

Pervez Sahib, you remember when Hina was in India, you could only see news of her bags and eyeglasses! I have kept those images at the back of my mind.

You know that yesterday, I endorsed Shahbaz Sahib’s suggestion of putting overpasses and underpasses, and I say by-passes too in NA 54 and NA 55 in the constituencies of Imran Khan and Sheikh Rasheed. Before the next election Now I have added NA 48 to this development scheme. My Maryam will replace Asad Umer in 2018 there. If he can come from Karachi and win 248, my Maryam is coming from Lahore to win this seat.

There is no harm from learning from others. Hina used the technique well, and I am sure my Maryam also has good collection but I will keep reminding her to build it up further. Yes yesterday, I instructed Mir Jamal, our property manager to arrange construction of special closets for Mayram’s expanded bags and eyeglasses collection.

The Prime Minister takes a sip from his lassi, and reminds his information minister Pervez Rashid, formally the Minister of Information, Mass-media Broadcasting, and National Heritage, Law, Justice & Human Rights, that he should make sure to remind the people and especially the media about the true status of Sartaj Aziz.

Pervez Sahib first of all our respected Sartaj Sahib is an economist, even though he is serving my National Security Advisor (NSA) as well as my advisor on the foreign policy at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but he is not exactly the Foreign Minister of Pakistan. Second, Pervez Sahib, as I mentioned that my Maryam would come with me on all my foreign trips, we need our embassies in those countries to arrange media coverage and especially interviews with her. When I was in London, Hussain and Hassan invited a consultant and he told me that it is important to build a public image. Indeed they love their sister.

Also, Sartaj Sahib, you will send instructions to our embassy of the country that I am visiting that the ambassador’s wife herself should take Maryam to the stores which have the best bags and eyeglasses. These are foreign policy assets and our Ishaq Dar Sahib can create a budget for such purchasing.

Now and then, I am told that Shirin Mazari raises questions about the whereabouts of the foreign minister in my cabinet. First of all, she needs to be reminded and so should everyone else be reminded that I am the foreign minister.

The Prime Minister take a hearty gulp of his lassi, and declares, now no need to say that we will have a foreign minister other than from me after the next election. I will announce my next cabinet; the foreign minister will be the first in the list. Ha ha ha … what will Shirin Mazari say then?

I know that we should expect no comment from PPP, especially my brother Asif Zardari. He has taken Bilawal everywhere with him. And how about the Big Pir Sahib, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was taking Benazir with him! I am just following tradition of promoting from within.

I hope Maryam will take this in fun but you know the famous saying that even the mice in the house of a Qazi, judge Sahib, are smart. He he he. Ha ha ha. Oh that needed a hearty gulp of lassi!

 

In fact, Mian Sahib, this is your Eureka Moment! I think it is a usage of some Greek or Roman or some philosopher called Archimedes, if I am not wrong, chimes in Khawaja Rafiq, the Minister of Railways. Those present break into loud clapping. Indeed! they shriek in unison. We love our Mian Sahib!

And  not to miss the chorus is Maryam’s cousin Abid Sher Ali, Minister of State for Water & Power, “God be praised, our Respected Prime Minister, always chooses the best! Our sister Maryam will carry her designer bags and eyeglasses much better than that Hina of Multan. He he he!

Dar Sahib, I really like the IMF idea that we can always sell a public corporation and raise loans from them. I will instruct the Establishment Division to send a proposal for acquiring a dedicated airplane for the foreign minister. Have you ever seen John Kerry fly commercial, he travels in official airplane? I mean what else! He is carrying all the official secrets and you can’t have baby gurgling curd over his papers. He he he.

Dar Sahib, you can get approval past our defense big boss, our beloved Khawaja Asif Sahib! Like the Prime Minister’s airplane, the foreign minister’s plane has to get the same level of service. You agree Khawaja Sahib.

We have to make sure that Maryam has all the facilities ready when she enters the door of her office on Constitution Ave.
