    These kids made the Pakistani people proud, they achieved something that not many people are capable of and above all they worked HARD. They portrayed Pakistan in a positive light on a global platform, something that the generation before them cannot take credit for. They maybe Grammarians but they’re Pakistanis first and that my dear friend Ovais, is something you should appreciate.
