It was Pakistan’s good fortune

It was Pakistan’s good fortune that decades ago its citizens went around the world to gain higher education and professional excellence in important disciplines. These expatriates excelled in their respective fields and made their mark. Indisputably, they remain better than the best today.
It was Pakistan’s misfortune that none of these accomplished sons and daughters of the New World had any desire to return to the homeland.
Regretfully, even President Musharraf did not utilize this most critical and powerful resource to take Pakistan forward into the 21st century.
