I had an interesting wakaeya back when I was in matric. Back when Pakistan Studies was a compulsory subject and I simply loathed it. Partially because our teacher was way too fast at covering the course but mostly because of the way we had to prepare for exams and tests.
It really wasn’t all that bad now that I, as a university-going student, think about it… but back then, when I had five other subjects to work on and limited time, memorizing all fourteen points of Quaid-e-Azam and all dozen or so “salient features” of not one but three separate constitutions (1956, 1962 and 1973) did not seem like a pleasant idea at all.
One day, me and my good friend Faseeh were out cycling around our cantonment when I realized that we had a big, big test on Constitutions of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan the next day and I wasn’t prepared at all for it. I asked Faseeh how to prepare said chapter in one hour and this is what he replied:
It did actually help me. The points about “rights of minorities” and “equality for all” and “no nepotism” were not forgotten after this little event.
