It would not be wrong to say but most of the people of Pakistan consider going abroad their life goal. Before going abroad, we may start day dreaming about how our lives would change. Here are some of the khyali pulao we cook:
Girls, a lot of Girls:
Desis think that when they reach on the airport in abroad all the girls (more precisely all the goris) will rush towards them (like they show in axe ad) and welcome them because apparently they have never seen a handsome guy like them. And gori ‘phasana’ will be an easy task. They will marry her and life will be all set. It is a fact that this is never going to happen.
“Bahar ja ker full on ayashi karein gain” as if everything is free there. If you have a large amount of money to spend then you can definitely have a good time but the moment you go abroad you starts to convert everything’s price in Pakistani rupees which leads to shattering of dreams.
Yes, you are independent but it would be correct to say you are on your own. You do not have to ask anyone for permission and you can go out at anytime and anywhere however if you live as a paying guest you have to follow the rules of landlord. You have to keep track of how you spend money because you have a limited amount in your hand and sometimes you have to ask your family in Pakistan for help.
Boys think that they will get a high paying job as soon as they land but that’s not the case. Finding a job abroad is not easy and it takes a lot of effort to prove that you have skills better than others. Sometimes you have to do jobs which you won’t even think of doing in Pakistan.
‘I am going to relax in abroad.’ No you are not because you have to do all of your work like cleaning, laundry, dusting and cooking (you have to do things your mom did for you and your kaam wali massi).
“Mainay sab ko bhool jana hai”:
Before going abroad many people say that I am going to enjoy so much that I will not miss anyone. However when you have to sit alone and have no one to talk to, you miss everything and everyone you left behind. You start to realize the importance of everyone in your life.
