A French, a German, a British and an awesome Pakistani

We live in a very modern, well connected world. So those of us blessed with the ability to speak need to show the world the reality, even if we must tear our vocal cords out in the process to be heard. PHOTO: FILE

“Pakistan? Where are your burqas?”

“We don’t wear one”, I gestured to my friends and myself.

“Yeah, of course – not on holidays. But you know, the ones you’re forced to wear in Pakistan.”

Laughing with disbelief, we shook our heads.

“No, we don’t. It’s usually a personal choice.”

“But…” his voice trailed off.

A pause, and then he threw more questions at us.

I spent seven weeks this summer interning overseas. There I was asked these questions, surprisingly by an Indian, a fellow ‘desi’ living only a border apart. Here he was, asking eagerly about how it was to live in a rocky, gun-strewn desert. He was pretty shocked to learn that we have Wi-Fi.

There are moments when you sit behind a screen and shake your head at the misconceptions people living abroad hold of you. And then you change the channel or close a tab and poof – it’s gone.

But it hit me like a slap across the face when I explained to nationality after nationality that no, no one I personally knew had been forcefully married off at the age of 10. And no, I could go to university and yes, I could talk to boys. There are societal pressures, of course, and a cultural tradition of child marriages, but no, not all of us carry bombs in our pockets and our children in our arms by the age of 12.

I remember my parents telling me from a very young age that as long as I conducted myself decently and broke no one’s trust, I could have whichever freedom I choose. Maybe I was one of the lucky ones, but I’ve always lived my life proudly as a 21st century Pakistani girl. I can vote for the leader I choose, I can drive a car, I can read and speak English, and I definitely did not get married off in my teens.

We live in a very modern, well connected world. So those of us blessed with the ability to speak need to show the world the reality, even if we must tear our vocal cords out in the process to be heard. How often can misunderstood nations rise up and point out that, yes, we have our problems. Yes, we have inflation and serial killing and an unstable civil structure. But look, here’s a girl from the mountains addressing the United Nations on the importance of education. Here’s a rickshaw driver that returned my lost phone yesterday. Here’s my best friend from a completely different sectarian background. Here’s one of the strongest armies in the world defending our borders night and day. Here’s the world’s largest privately owned ambulance service. Here’s myself, talking to you in English.

It was heart-breaking when a German friend stated at first that he’d never come to Pakistan because the entire country is made of sand. How can you not want to hit your head against the wall? But we Googled images of Pakistan for them and spend ages telling them local anecdotes.

“Did someone hire you to Photoshop these?”

We laughed at the astounded expression on a French fellow intern’s face.

We had a British friend remark in the last couple of weeks:

“I see you guys jump from Urdu to English in one sentence and it’s remarkable. I can never do that.”

“Comes from being bilingual,” we reasoned.

One of those rare moments when I felt glad we had our regional languages because we were used to interacting in different dialects.

“Sometimes you speak in different languages, for example we’d switch from Punjabi for a fruit seller, to Urdu for a visit to a bank.”

It was a tiny moment of triumph, augmented when a Mauritian friend excitedly told us:

“I want to come next summer to meet you all. Let me find a job and then I’ll show up at your doorstep!”

It was almost exhilarating to see how warm everyone was as days hurried away. It convinces you of the possibility of peace, interacting with nearly 40 people from all over the world who’re roughly your age, and seeing the world through their eyes and, blessedly, letting them see yours.

Proudest moment of the internship? Convincing a bunch of French, German (the same one, yes), Egyptian and British youth how awesome we are as a nation.

And yes, someone’s definitely visiting Pakistan soon.

    Agree with the author. I once had a chat with an Italian lady during my vacation and at the end of our conversation, she exclaimed “You speak such good English, I didn’t know that people in Pakistan learn English in schools.” The point is that people especially in the West have serious misconceptions about Pakistan because Pakistan is portrayed in a negative light by the media in the Western countries. On the other hand, the Egyptians or Malaysians or other nationals of ‘the East’ do not have such misconceptions about Pakistan.Recommend

    Seems like you were “trying” too hard to just prove Pakistan is awesome. Sorry, but if you guys are still interning, you’re probably pretty young so doesnt really matter!Recommend

    Just to add, It should also be an eye opener that the image of Pakistan abroad needs to be changed rather than saying “we do not care.”Recommend

  • shivi

    Well said girl but there are many flaws your country needs to ractify. First of all you should learn why people are not fond of Pakistan 1 Taliban presence 2 Terrorism 3 lack of education and conservative people 4 Islamic country rather then secular country
    whereas your genetic brothers and sisters on other side of border are doing so good not only in their country but also in whole world. Now a good example of your youth leader Bilal Bhutto. see in this era of technology and science people should be encourage for education, enginnering courses , IT technology and so much good things which can help your country but sadly immature Bilal is talking about getting Kashmir from India. sick.. Do you think in real , pakistan need kashmir or need developement. That is why your country is still lacking behind. And yes whenever you will travel abroad or study u will be bombarded with such questions because people think about pakistan are more worst then what they are asking to you.Recommend

  • liberal-lubna-fromLahore

    Ugh. Another unoriginal blog about Pakistanis boasting about their little efforts of how they are improving the soft image of the country, by interacting with a few fox news washed age fellows and dont even get me with that Indian guy you talk about here. Just because those guys landed a freaking space toy in Mars they are acting as if that kind of stuff doesn’t happen in their own country. Pretty sure he was faking it just to sound above ‘Pakistan’ or simply to woo you. And jeez, can we stop being so image conscious? like why did you even find the need to write a whole blog about this experience? I hope you are not making this up but then teenagers do have a tendency to get carried away.

    I live abroad too and dont ever get any of these questions thrown at me. Maybe its just or maybe its because I surround myself with the educated crowd of people who have decency to not just ask these dumb questions like “so wheres your burqa or did u get married at age 10” because they dont want to make themselves look ignorant as well. If they are asking such question, instead of pitying yourself, you really should pity them for being so brainwashed and ignorant. I would not care any less and misconceptions other countries’ citizens have about citizens of my country. If people like playing dumb down and ignorant, that is their choice. And I would definitely not write a blog about it to praise myself how I managed to change these hardcore misconceptions about 3 foreigners have of us.Recommend

    What is the point of this column? To show that Pakistan is a liberal, modern, civilized and progressive country? How would the author answer if someone asks why people oppose DNA evidence in rape cases and the requirement to produce four male Muslim men witnesses to prove rape?Recommend

    Thanks for your efforts to break the typical image of Pakistan.
    Once I was sitting at Bahrain International Airport in Smoker’s Room when a Black African approached me asking for a light. After few moments he asked me where are you from, I said I am from Pakistan… his face got instant joy and he proudly asked me.. “Kia Haal Hai” (How are you), I was very much surprised seeing an African talking so fluent and clear Urdu.
    I was shocked when he said, I am doctor and former medical student from Karachi who travelled east & west of Pakistan using Pakistan Railway and very much fond of Saag & Dhania ki Chatni.Recommend

    My Pakistani friends here (in California) did help me set many perspective right, especially the one where I believe that whatever the hawkish media, establishment and the religious fanatics say, we Indian and Pakistanis are very much alike. We both are pretty emotionally charged and we both are pretty emotionally fool.

    Every wondered why this is? Pick some reasons: support to export of terrorism, constant begging, nuclear proliferation, aggression against neighbors, medieval and intolerant teachings and laws, bat treatment of minorities, religious intolerance, a rogue army/intelligence service, killing of shia, christians,ahmadis, Balochis, blasphemy and apostasy death penalty…Recommend

    “” The point is that people especially in the West have serious misconceptions about Pakistan because Pakistan is portrayed in a negative light by the media in the Western countries. ”

    Would you tell me if you have ever found the west to be criticising Pakistan when Pakistan was in your opinion truly at fault or the west in your opinion has always been discriminatory towards Pakistan?

    The west does not have misconceptions about just Pakistan but also India and many other countries in the East just like not every person in the east can be considered the most enlightened in their outlook towards west. The Malyasians, Indians, Chinese all were stereotyped in the west but their opinion of these countries if not completely, changed partially in the recent past, it was not because the west decided to be magnanimous towards these countries but the concerned countries have invested time and efforts to ensure it happened. If a person has an opinion of you and you think his opinion matters, it is up to you to ensure his opinion of you changes.Recommend

  • jin

    I did enjoy reading the blog and am sorry if I got carried away. I didn’t intend anything in my comment to be taken as an offence. My comment’s criticism was not drawn at the author, but rather at this constant stereotypical situation that keeps erupting from time to time and it just bugs me how with so much informational access one has to everything, some people in the West (and one Indian) think its so cool to act dumb down and ignorant by ‘pretending’ to be so oblivious and being above and beyond to what the developing and third world countries are going through. I mean, it can only take a google search for them to find out whether English is a spoken language in Pakistan or any other country for that matter but that does not seem to happen. I mean, look at us, we are constantly researching and learning and preparing ourselves for being in different countries. Anyway, I should stop before I get carried away again. Glad you had fun at the exchange! Cheers.Recommend

  • siesmann

    These examples are exceptions.Most people are curious rather than critical of your or any other country’s culture or what they might have heard or read about it.Pakistan has been prominent in the media for many years now,and mostly for the wrong reasons.So misconceptions and stereotyping do happen.Most people are courteous and understanding.Recommend

    I congratulate the author for trying to promote optimism regarding our country with people from other cultures. We can never let go of our national identity, and we should not. We should be proud of where we came from, and promote our culture. Every other country does that. People in France are proud enough to use only French in their communication (well majority of times), people in Britain always harp on their historical significance, people in Japan are proud of their economic and technology influence and footprints…..we should also understand our own identity, our significance in this world, and convey it to others.

    I look forward to reading more articles from the author. We need to inject optimism into our writing and communication.Recommend

    Efforts are being made to change the opinion and it will take time. It cannot be denied that media does play an important role in shaping the perception about a country and its people. What the country really is and what are the views of its people; can be judged only through people to people contact. It is unfortunate that the positive aspect of my country is not highlighted as much as the neighboring countries highlight theirs but as I have said earlier, efforts are being made in this regard and the situation will hopefully get better with time.Recommend
