Resolutions For Pakistan On Independence Day

Instead of opening a history book or sitting down with their grandparents to hear stories from that time, many Pakistanis have decided to look into the present and plan for the future. They believe that making resolutions will help them focus on what to do to make this country a prosperous one. According to many, it is better to make the youth plan the future instead of teaching them how to sing patriotic songs like, which only stir patriotic sentiments on 14 August every year.
