A peek into the world of Twitter from the other side of the mirror.

Pakistan has, in reality, never really come close to state failure in the way that some countries post-Arab Spring the world over have. T he currency has not collapsed. The economy continues to keep its head above water. Not ideal, but neither wholly dysfunctional either. We must remember that at 68 years, quite like India as a nation, Pakistan is barely out of its infancy. Before the naysayers get trolling, I would like to add that Pakistan today is a glass half-full — and looking set to fill the other half.
