This is nothing but sever, utter and absolute matter of shock of my life and that too at the age of 78 and why it should not be shocking may I dare ask, if not annoying, as to how not even one Pakistani out of our total population of as many as 225,517,255 booked a seat on the maiden space flight scheduled to take off to space on 20th July, 2021 through Virgin Galactic company founded by Sir Richard Branson of USA?
I am out of my beloved Pakistan since 1976 but nevertheless, I still quite undoubtedly very much know that my many luckiest compatriots have trillions and that too in multiplication and, therefore, such fortunate men and women could have even chartered many full flight not just one flight instead of a seat only and thereby those Pakistanis who had flown on space flight would have very proudly fluttered Pakistan national flag in space but alas one way or the other none did it alike which is very shocking indeed to be honest.
What surprises me less and ponders me more is that how come all those who looted our national exchequer again in trillions, billions are out of question, did not feel excited for boarding a space flight not with their own hard-earned money but the money they have minted through books/crooks. Jeff Bezos has paid US$ 30 million for booking a seat for himself on the inaugural space flight and my most honorable compatriots described above must would have paid even thrice of this money for a seat to fly off along with Jeff but why and how they missed life remembering opportune is not understood by me at least. I am neither hesitant nor reluctant to pronounce with full confidence even to the extent of betting on my life that Virgin Galactic is a purely private business entity organizing space flights which for sure is not NAB from any angle and or perspective whatsoever in any case and, therefore, our aspirants shall never ever be asked as to from where did they get the money to buy space flight ticket.
I sincerely request that my comments be flashed & who knows may be our trillions owners both overseas and or in Pakistan may read this tinkle and consequently they may also book seats on space flight instead of missing the same. Who and how many take initiative, may I dare ask my compatriots? zaidi.formerdiplomat@hotmail.
