Ant & Grasshopper

Traditional Version

The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer
building its house and laying up supplies for the
winter. The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and
laughs & dances & plays the summer away.

Come winter,the Ant is warm and well fed. The
Grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in
the cold.





Modern Version

The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer
building its house and laying up supplies for the
winter. The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and
laughs & dances & plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press
conference and demands to know why the Ant should be
allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold
and starving.

Geo TV, BBC, ARY, CNN show up to provide pictures of
the shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the Ant
in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can
this be that this poor Grasshopper is allowed to
suffer so?

Asma Jahangir stages a demonstration in front of the
Ant's house.

Imran Khan goes on a fast along with other
Grasshoppers demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated
to warmer climates during winter.

Amnesty International and Chief Justice Iftikhar
criticizes the Pakistan Government for not upholding
the fundamental rights of the Grasshopper.

The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking
support to the Grasshopper (many promising Heaven and
Everlasting Peace for prompt support as against the
wrath of God for non-compliance) .

Opposition MPs stage a walkout. Islamic parties call
for "Hartal" in Frontier and Baluchistan demanding a
Judicial Enquiry.

MQM Coalition in Sindh immediately passes a law
preventing Ants from working hard in the heat so as to
bring about equality of poverty among Ants and
Grasshoppers.

Sheikh Rasheed allocates one free coach to
Grasshoppers on all Pakistan Railway Trains, aptly
named as the 'Grasshopper Shalimar'.

Finally, the President drafts an ordinance ' Anti
State Terrorism Against Grasshoppers Act' [ASTAGA],
with effect from the beginning of the winter.
Mobilizes state agencies.

Punjab Govt. makes ' Special Reservation ' for
Grasshoppers in Educational Institutions & in
Government Services.

The Ant is fined for failing to comply with ASTAGA
and having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes,
it's home is confiscated by the NAB and handed over to
the Grasshopper in a ceremony covered by PTV.

Nawaz Sharief calls it ' A Triumph of Justice '.
Benazir calls it ' Democratic Justice '.
MQM calls it the ' Revolutionary Resurgence of the
Downtrodden'
Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz invites the Grasshopper
to address the National Assembly.

Many years later...

The Ants have since migrated to the US , Canada , UK
and Middle East, have worked harder then they did
before set up a multi-million dollar business.

1000s of Grasshoppers still die of starvation despite
reservation somewhere in Pakistan ..

As a result of loosing lot of hard working Ants and
feeding the Grasshoppers, Pakistan is still a
developing country !!!</font id="size5">
