    There's a lot that can be done and money made. Getting out of one's comfort zone is the biggest hurdle. One has to slog hard but how many people you know would start own small business that's below their imaginary social standards?

    What I find shocking is that people will become taxi drivers in UK (& some of them end up making a successful business) but won't touch any such businesses back home.

    We just don't have that hard and smart work attitude and thinking in general. This requires grooming and that won't come from NOKARz.

    In a society where parents push their kids towards profession of their choice instead of giving them the encouragement to excel at what they are actually good at, this is what happens to it. Mismatch of skill sets and stagnancy.

    Sir Allah Ka nazaam hai. Tajarat Ka hissa nokri se zyada. But business requires heck of a lot more physical effort and brain usage.

    As the Chinese saying on frog goes: Put a frog in boiling water, it will jump out. But if you put the frog in room temp water with slow heat, it will stay put and boil ready to eat.

    NOKR mind set is the frog on slow heat. Once boiled it's finished and NOKR for life.

    Education system is geared to output NOKARz anyways but the older generation is more messed up than anything and makes it all worse. Heck population is exploding to produce more NOKARz.

    That is awesome, I was always intrigued by how Pakistani police differs from our police.
