Prakash Yedhula (Lawyer)     26 August 2009

Written by a Pakistani journalist about India

Here's what is happening in India : 

The two Ambani brothers can buy 100 percent of every company listed on the Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) and would still be left with $30 billion to spare. The four richest Indians can buy up all goods and services produced over a year by 169 million Pakistanis and still be left with $60 billion to spare. The four richest Indians are now richer than the forty richest Chinese. 

In November, Bombay Stock Exchange's benchmark Sens*x flirted with 20,000 points. As a consequence, Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Industries became a $100 billion company (the entire KSE is capitalized at $65 billion). Mukesh owns 48 percent of Reliance. 

In November, comes Neeta's birthday. Neeta turned forty-four three weeks ago. Look what she got from her husband as her birthday present: 

A sixty-million dollar jet with a custom fitted master bedroom, bathroom with mood lighting, a sky bar, entertainment cabins, satellite television, wireless communication and a separate cabin with game consoles. Neeta is Mukesh Ambani's wife, and Mukesh is not India 's richest but t he second richest. 

Mukesh is now building his new home, Residence Antillia (after a mythical, phantom island somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean ). At a cost of $1 billion this would be the most expensive home on the face of the planet. At 173 meters tall Mukesh's new family residence, for a family of six, will be the equivalent of a 60-storeyed building. The first six floors are reserved for parking. The seventh floor is for car servicing and maintenance. The eighth floor houses a mini-theatre. Then there's a health club, a gym and a swimming pool. Two floors reserved for Ambani family's guests. Four flo ors above the guest floors are family floors all with a superb view of the Arabian Sea . On 

top of everything are three helipads. A staff of 600 is expected to care for the family and their family home. 

In 2004, India became the 3rd most attractive foreign direct investment destination. Pakistan wasn't even in the top 25 countries. 

In 2004, the United Nations, the representative body of 192 sovereign member states, had requested the Electio n Commission of India to assist the UN in the holding elections in Al Jumhuriyah al Iraqiyah and Dowlat-e Eslami-ye Afghanestan. Why the Election Commission of India and not the Election Commission of Pakistan? After all, Islamabad is closer to Kabul than is Delhi . 

Imagine, 12 percent of all American scientists are of Indian origin; 38 percent of doctors in America are Indian; 36 percent of NASA scientists are Indians; 34 percent of Microsoft employees are Indians; and 28 percent of IBM employees are Indians. 

For the record: Sabeer Bhatia created and founded Hotmail. Sun Microsystems was founded by Vinod Khosla. The Intel Pentium processor, that runs 90 percent of all computers, was fathered by Vinod Dham. Rajiv Gupta co-invented Hewlett Packard's E-speak project. Four out of ten Silicon Valley start-ups are run by Indians. Bolly wood produces 800 movies per year and s ix Indian ladies have won Miss Universe/Miss World titles over the past 10 years. 

For the record: Azim Premji, the richest Muslim entrepreneur on the face of the planet, was born in Bombay and now lives in Bangalore.India now has more than three dozen billionaires; Pakistan has none (not a single dollar billionaire). 

The other amazing aspect is the rapid pace at which India is creating wealth. In 2002, Dhirubhai Ambani, Mukesh and Anil Ambani's father, left his two sons a fortune worth $2.8 billion. In 2007, their combined wealth stood at $94 billion. On 29 October 2007, as a result of the stock market rally and the appreciation of the Indian rupee, Mukesh became the richest person in the world, with net worth climbing to US$63.2 billion (Bill Gates, the richest American, stands at around $56 billion). 

Indians and Pakistanis have the same Y-chromosome haplogroup. We have the same genetic sequence and the same genetic marker (namely: M124). 

We have the same DNA molecule, the same DNA sequence. Our culture, our traditions and our cuisine are all the same. We watch the same movies and sing the same songs. What is it that Indians have and we don't? 


And also to mention: They think of Construction of own nation, unlike nations who r just concerned with destruction of others

it is Good thing some  one is thinking the deference  between India and Pakistan -The Possitive thing will  give some solutions  !

 It is good to learn that somebody wrote this article from such a place which the whole world has denounced its militant activities! Actually the credit goes to the journlist who did this daring research and I am sure he must be going through a tough time by now! Bhutto, the leader of PPP who himself had a great belief in Democracy & Socialism, could not do anything and how can we expect these military rulers will bring such a reversible change! Their motto is ""We will eat grass but will make Atom Bomb".  They will never change!!

As the article concentrated on Ambani brothers, once Arun Shourie also said: “Dhirubhais are to be thanked not once, but twice over.”

In my perception the Pakistani Journalist shows enough reason to Introspect  the "Capacity" and "Capability"  of Pakistan.

Can someone translate the above English words  "Capacity & Capability",  into Urdu language.

Keep Smiling .... Hemant

 القدرة والإمكانية Is it correct ... LOL .. I am kidding ... :)

Raman ( )     27 August 2009

 That was Arabic ... here are the Urdu words ... but don't know how to pronounce!


 قابلیت ۔ لیاقت ۔ استعداد ۔ بل ۔ زور ۔ سامرتھ ۔ شکتی capability

گنجائش ۔ سمائی ۔ پیٹ ۔ وسعت ۔ ظرف ۔ جگہ capacity

So, what is your point ? Am I missing anything here ?

Shree. ( Advocate.)     27 August 2009

We release hardcore terrorists not once but twice so that they can continue bombing innocent men, women and children, they get away with the kargil misadventure denying everything, Our Parliament is attacked, we send forces to the border and call them back, ..... number of blasts all around the country, the news no longer makes any difference, to anybody in this country... what else r we waiting for to react ??

there's nothing to be proud of except for our defence forces who have not staged a coup inspite of all this, and still continue to take care of this great nation which is run by imbeciles... talk about riches, haa !! where's the dignity ??
