KARACHI: With reference to the tragic suicide in Lahore of a mother and her four children, I am sorry but we do not have time to address poverty and misery. We are very busy counting our cash, controlling the internet, defending our fake degrees, sending our children abroad for higher education, distributing gifts among loyal friends and deciding which precious dress to wear tonight's party. As for these incidents, we are of course very sorry. But that's all we do.
