Pakistanis And Jobs

Whats with all these Pakistani people and their obsession with jobs, and their obsession with other people's lives. Why can't they just live and let live. If Im happy doing a business why should it bother people, so what if I studied a certain subject and am not doing a related job. I didn't study to work for someone, I studied for my own satisfaction. If I'm happy with what i'm doing why should I care what others think and say. Some people are happy doing jobs all their life and thats how they are wired I'm not, I like the freedom I have being self employed, I feel that if im doing a job Im wasting my life making someone elses money for them while I could be doing something for myself in the same time, but the question is WHY the hell should someone else be bothered with what I do ????

aah it is the same everywhere indeed...

You know pakistanis study in order to have something to say when getting married, "I have a degree", I'm a great catch.

After marriage they do it so they can hang the degree on the wall "I have a degree", heck we have a whole batch.

After having kids and letting them grow up, they hang up their degrees, "My kids have a degree", let's find them a perfect match.

After they grown old they take the degree off the wall and sit on the charpayy and say "mere paas aik degree tha," bilkul sach. ;)

Keep working as you like to work and tell 'em to dafa karo! :)

Dude... chill! All sorts of people all over the world. Some like business, other like the 'steady income' (as they like to call it). The problem with Pakistanis is that they always want to impose their views on others!

When people who are pro-business see you, they don't say anything. When pro-jobs people see you, they think you are throwing your life away and that you should lead the life like they think is right (they probably found Euphorea that way or something).

I think you just met a bunch of pro-job people in a row.

Keep up the good work...

& talking of problems with Pakistan and Pakistanis, I wrote something on my blog today. More a jumbled mess than anything, but let me know your thoughts.

thnx for the comment man. But thats exactly what I'm afraid of... that I'll adjust to this life; that I'll stop caring about learning; and that I'll stop caring about the 'greater good'; that I'll stop caring about personal growth. These concepts are alien to Pakistanis! Achi sarkari naukri hai tou aur kia chahiye... I get scolded by elders in my family when I say I'm not satisfied here.

O well... hopefully, I can find an outlet!

Just stumbled upon your blog...it's lame to see that "degrees" and "jobs" pretty much define who a Pakistani is. I'd say the same goes for Indians.

Wanting a steady income to live comfortably is one thing. Wanting material gains to show off a phat house, phat car, trophy wife (or husband), & straight-A Harvard-bound kids to make yourself feel higher up than fellow desis is another. Unfortunately this "disease" of our parents' generation has been inherited by almost everyone of our generation, which is why I usually stay away from other desis my age - yammering on and on about the material life and inconsequential conversation does nothing for me. They'll realize what they're missing when they're on their death bed. I'm busy experiencing life, and I don't regret it.
