Re: Pakistani Economic Stress Watch

That tells you how poor the average Pakistani is. There is a low percapita electricity consumption, there is generation capacity but no buyers.

I do wonder how Pakistanis live in the rural areas and small towns.

Please maintain some etiquette, if you must provide assertions on treatment, you have a responsibility to post a reference. I cannot make it any simpler than this. It otherwise undermines your credibility as well as intelligence.

Re: Post Wuhan-Virus(Covid19) World and India

With this kind of carnage I do not think the US is going to forgive China. Higher ups in both Britain and the US have spoken of a day of reckoning with China.
