A Happening Day

The day started with the constant chatter about Naya Pakistan as oath ceremony was schedule to start at 9. 15 a.m. It got delayed and delayed and we were pasted in front of our television screens! Finally we heard the anchors screaming ‘Imran Khan left for Aiwan-e-Sadar and we were like “Ya Allah Shukar“…

Start with National Anthem & Holy Qura’n

The ceremony started with National Anthem and the recitation of Holy Qura’n. After the recitation, President of Pakistan Mamnoon Hussain took oath from Imran Khan. We all noticed that smile Prime Minister!

Minus the Customary Protocol

The news media observed lack of customary protocol as there were 7 cars while we are used to at least double this number. The oath ceremony is usually marked with the exhibition of  an impressive protocol. The absence of such exhibition was a ray of hope for the future of Pakistan.

Here is the Proof that Hardwork Pays Off!
