    That is because Indian concentrate on its overseas population. India made sure that student visa's are easy to obtain for their nationals unlike Pakistan who had made restrictions on Student visas.

    Things are thousand times worse in India.
    But have you seen any Indians complaining about their country all the time.
    I too complain a lot.
    But things take time.
    Reforms are painful.
    But are we ready for painful reforms?
    No we are not .
    Look government has put no new tax on industralist and retailers .
    Out or 1 lakh 30 thousand, only 15 thousand people from textile sector pay tax while all of them enjoy subcidie gas and electricity . Now without increasing the tax government is checking the electricity connections.. And those electricity connections that are subcidised but not paying taxes must be forced into taxes .
    But they have created a masnoi bhuran on media that tax bhera diya . Humain taba ker diya. Infact due to strikes and intentional non buying many small people are suffering due to This mafia like behaviour of our industry.
    What should we do then?
    Not go for reforms that are hurting the government but good for the country in the long run .
    So things get better slowly .
    We are not Arab states that we can built cities in few years .
    We have to work hard and hard to make a nation.
    Look at London a century back. It was filthy and dirty and look at them now .things take time..
    And we people measure time in our own terms . Like we expect change tommorow. Then we expect after Month then we loose hope.
    That's not how things work .

    1st my natives roots are from Pakistan, so why would i care about India

    Hard reforms yes but please do tell me what real hard reforms have been done by any Gov in last decade ?

    If you wanna go for Londons Example
    Look from where china started other East Asian countries started
    Heck a Pakistan of 50s & 60 had was much better at everything than current Pakistan
    So other countries are moving forward while Pakistan is going back so everyone should close their eyes and kumbaya

    Thats the biggest problem with pakistani society instead of identifying and resolving the problems we should close our eyes and let everything on Almighty to solve it for us
