Today in the Planning Commission attending seminar on Development Priorities for the Government. Drs Hadees Pasha, Shamshad Akhtar, Samia Nishter were the speakers. Interesting and informative but nothing reassuring yet about turn around in economy, unemployment, poverty, gender imbalance, tax evasion and several other challenges we have been grappling with for decades.

One heartening feature is visible in the plate with one small sandwich as the end of seminar refreshment. This plate used to contain a samosa, a cake piece and two cookies along with the sandwich a few months ago.
