Well begun is half done. This was precisely missing during the tenure of Shah Mehmood Qureshi who was more of an aggressive old school diplomat than the younger and refreshing Rabbani Khar. She has managed to bring out the voice of the youth of Pakistan,a voice of anticipation, peace, cooperation and brotherhood. Although she is widely touted to be the face of the army, her initial days have been largely error-free. Only time will tell whether she really meant all that was boisterously put out to this world.

Optimism is a bitch. It sticks onto you at the most ill-opportune moments.
