thought expresses itself in poetic mode.

Pakistan Pakistan mein Fauj Ka Kirdar. This book is a huge effort on her

Shahida Latif spent her whole life in doing something curricular or extra curricular,
reading or writing, playing or travelling. Her life remained full of activities. And work
has not finished yet for her. I have lot of ideas to pursue, there are lot of things
to do yet. I feel life is short for the things I've planned to do. Life is short and
painful. Activities make it comfortable. Shahida knows it very well. She spent her
life in the light of this rule and will carry on. Persons like Shahida Latif don't look
for results. For them activity itself means everything. And that turns out to be the key
of their success. Pakistan will keep prospering as long as people like Shahida Latif keep
singing melodious songs for it.
