Plutocrat Politicians as Party Patriarchs

Sitting in a relatively plush Queens Gate apartment a few years ago, I asked late Ms Bhutto how she envisioned her party once she is not around. I still recall her emblazoned eyes and taut response.

Emerging Pakistan

Another great address by President Musharraf, depicting his clear and deep understanding of the subject.  As always, he supports all his statements with facts and figures. You will also be pleasently surprised to hear from the former first lady, his wife, Begum Sehba Musharraf who also says few words about him in the opening. A must watch address.
