Cowasjee: enlightened man

January 04, 2012

FOR the last several years every Sunday morning Ardeshir Cowasjee’s was the first column that I went for. Compliments to Dawn also for publishing his bitter, biting, unsavoury and fiery criticism of the affairs of the state. He must have felt dejected that there was not one leader or politician, in this nation of millions who could somewhat come even 10 miles closer to what Mohammad Ali Jinnah was, and what his ideals for Pakistan were.

Feeling disgusted with the apathy and indifference of those in power to solve and get rid the problems highlighted in his columns, Cowasjee felt ‘re-tired’ and decided to discontinue any further writing. My compliments and best wishes to this great and enlightened man with all health and happiness.
