The comparison between the life in the US and in Pakistan

OTHER1330288_ArticoloAfter thinking a lot about many other topics to write my 2nd blog I decided to write something about the experiences about living the USA coming from a  different country. After moving to the United States, the main challenge was to know the local culture and how to respond to it. The language was the second challenge but I knew enough of the language to convey my message but now enough to order lunch at McDonald’s. After living in the US for 12 years, I have learned a lot about the culture and the people. I have learned that this country is all about accepting others, sharing and caring and making sure that we all win at the end of the day. I understand that there are few bad apples who don’t believe in diversity but prefer to stay unaware of the global culture. I have learned that in America the Americans are an asset to the country and seen as equal without discriminating based on the wealth, race, education, color, religion etc. America gives opportunity and a chance to all of us to be whatever we want to become.In Pakistan, the life was different where people were judged based on the money and the education. The Government is all about corruption, they come into the offices to gain their own good and spend millions to get into the offices because this is just like an investment to them. The poor is getting poorer and the rich is getting richer every day in Pakistan. The opportunities are only given to the people who have connections with the government officials or their families can pay a lot of bribes to the people in charge.

The minorities in America are treated much differently than in Pakistan. in Pakistan minorities are suffering every day, even thou the media does not show that and the Government does not want the international community to know that either. The minorities do not have the right to elect their own representation to the government but the winning party handpicks the members from the minorities communities to seat them into the government offices. That is obvious that those hand-picked people are not going to speak for the rights of the people but the political party.

So the life of minorities is much better in the USA than Pakistan.

  1. This is a really fascinating post. I feel somewhat the same about my experience being an immigrant from Haiti, though I’d argue that corruption here still exists, it’s just more hidden and organized in the highest levels of government. Either way, there’s so much to think about here – thanks!
