    Well BD separated, which I think was good for all sides. So I guess less Bengalis is what is different.

    Look at rich westernized elites in the past and you will see that the same rich westernized elite exist today sadly. Nothing has changed much if you ask me

    Pakistani TV was a class apart in the 70s and 80s. For me, the epitome of PTV's elegance was the 1976 series Parchaiyan starring Saira Kazmi, Rahat Kazmi and Shakeel.

    That my friend, is what happens when a nation of idiots get hooked on bollywood filth and deviate from their true purpose. Pakistanis as nation, is as deluded, divided and deplorable, as a black ant on a dark night, crawling on black sand.

    What I hate more than bhindians are Pakistani idiots who worships Bollywood like a complete j@ck@ss!!

    Over-zealous religiosity since Zia is to blame. Otherwise we would have been like Malaysia. Moderate yet practicing.

    I don't watch Indian films but I do like to listen to a bit of Rafi.
    Does your comment apply to me as well?

    Have you ever wondered why these people think they were great once?

    I don't get it. They were probably worse before

    TV programs of any country are not the true representation of the way people lived in the past. I would rather rely on the real footage from earlier decades than the TV programs of that era.

    This is how Pakistani people "actually" lived in the past.

    Rawalpindi of 1920s, (This is how our ancestors actually lived without any influence from outside cultures and technology)


    Rawalpindi of 1970s (The influence of foreign cultures and technology is quite visible here)


    Rawalpindi of 1980s
