ISLAMABAD/LAHORE/KARACHI/PESHAWAR/QUETTA – Nation’s nazrayati children were given a collective rude awakening at the end of the traditional winter holiday period at the start of the New Year after they were told that their favourite Chacha Jamhuryat doesn’t exist.
While such a moment comes in every kid’s life, some taking more time than others, where they realise that the mythical being that they grew up admiring and hearing stories about, isn’t actually there in real life, for many the truth about Chacha Jamhuryat has been especially hard to take.
“This is the worst start to the New Year possible! How could there not be any Chacha Jamhuryat? How will the world ever be the same again?” questioned one nazryati kid Fahad while bawling.
“I remember the time I first realised that neither Chacha Jamhuryat nor Khala Jamhuryat ever existed in the 90s. My father tells me about feeling the same in the 70s,” said Fahad’s mother Fauzia.
Onlookers note that the fact that such unquestionable lack of evidence was collectively given to such a large number of nazryati kids has also enhanced the overall gloom.
“Unfortunately, every now and then a new mythical creature is created to humour these kids. I’ve been witnessing the same since I found out that Baba Jamhuryat isn’t real in the 40s,” said 96-year-old retired polling agent Bashir Yaqoob.
