Pakistan's False Dawn and the Beginning of History with Aqdas Afzal

A false dawn is a promising situation which comes to nothing. This is how Aqdas Afzal describes the situation in his native Pakistan and India at the end of the Raj. “The point to remember here, Steve, is that the British were in India not to govern. They were in India to extract surplus and to maintain what they called law and order. And so the British left without giving the local people any taste or mechanism for bringing about accountability or democracy. But they did leave behind these two very, almost draconian institutions for keeping law and order. And because of these two institutions - these two state institutions that the British left behind - in the case of Pakistan, the first 25 years of Pakistan's history was complete chaos.” Aqdas talks to Steve about the chaos of partition – a humanitarian crisis. Remember, Pakistan was not only separated from India, but it was also cleaved from its own Eastern wing, now known as Bangladesh. The generation that sacrificed and struggled to gain independence was hoping for a bright future. That was the false dawn. Pakistan fell into the lap of neoliberal thinking because of the Cold War, as Aqdas explains it. When the Soviets entered Afghanistan, the military government took over in Pakistan, cozying up with the US defense establishment. Pakistani policy makers began to sound like the godparents of the neoliberal project, Thatcher and Reagan. The interview covers the destructive role of the IMF, World Bank, and WTO – what Steve refers to as the evil trinity. No matter how many of our guests talk about them, there is always more outrage to be uncovered in their manipulation of the economies of the global South. Steve and Aqdas discuss Francis Fukuyama's concept of “the end of history.” With the collapse of the USSR, liberal democracy and capitalism were expected to be the final stage of human evolution, leaving no other pathway for developing nations. Aqdas counters with the notion that history is not linear. “Russia is a country that went through shock therapy, that was undertaken by experts coming from the World Bank and the IMF. These experts are basically telling Russia how to open its economy, how to change over from socialism to a market-based economy. The same Russia today is challenging the might of capitalist countries like Britain, United States, Germany.” He calls this the beginning of history. Aqdas Afzal finished his undergraduate and first master's degree in Political Science from Ohio State University, then returned to his native Pakistan. After working there for five years he won the Fulbright scholarship for his second master's and PhD in Economics from UMKC. He teaches at Habib University in Karachi and writes https://www.dawn.com/authors/8439/aqdas-afzal (a monthly op-ed in Dawn), a leading English language newspaper there. @AqdasAfzal on Twitter

Pakistani singers Ali Sethi and Shae Gill's song Pasoori has spread like wildfire. This is the song that is said to have united music fans across India and Pakistan who simply can't stop humming or grooving to it. But what does pasoori mean? It is a Punjabi word that means a dilemma or a conflict that makes us go back and forth on a decision or action. It refers to a situation in which we find ourselves in a mental or physical chaos.  In Urdu, pasoori could be loosely translated to kashmakash meaning dilemma.  Tune in to this week's Urdunama episode, as Fabeha Syed looks at the theme of chaos in Urdu poetry and how poets like Shahrayar, Salam Machhlishehri, Ahmad Faraz, and others have chosen to address that through their work.

Ben Zaidi - "Jerusalem" from the 2022 album Acre of Salt on Nettwerk. “What are you?” is an eye-rolling question people of mixed heritages never cease to get asked and often have no idea how to answer. Seattle's Ben Zaidi tackles his unique background and the internal conflict of not knowing how to identify in today's Song of the Day, “Jerusalem.” Born to a Jewish father, Pakistani mother, and with Muslim grandparents, Zaidi candidly unpacks his familial stories and the complicated feelings surrounding them in the downtempo guitar strummer. “Sometimes I feel like Jersualem /There's three religions trickling through my veins,” sings Zaidi in the chorus. “By the time they sort it out /There'll be nothing left to claim.” “It is a strange fate being of mixed heritage in the whitewash of America,” Zaidi explains of the song. “Often it feels like the many cultures of my ancestors have been diluted, and I have been left with no heritage rather than many... I am starting, however, to see this disorientation as an identity of its own. Manzur Zaidi was my grandfather I never met. He and his family were Pakistani, and lived through the partition of India... I use their Arabic family name and my Hebrew first name to try to combine the two lineages that most describe my parents. It was only later that I discovered 'Ben' means 'son.' and that 'Zaidi' is also a Yiddish word, for 'grandfather.'" The song comes from his upcoming debut album Acre of Salt, set for release on June 3rd. Produced by Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers, Peter Gabriel, Beck), the record was recorded at Los Angeles' Sound City Studios along with backing band members Ethan Gruska, Sebastian Steinberg (Fiona Apple,) saxophonist Sam Gendel and Kane Ritchotte (Portugal.

CNN senior political analyst & White House advisor to four Presidents David Gergen

New York Times-best selling author David Gergen - White House adviser to four presidents of different parties, CNN senior political analyst, and founder of the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School - presents an inspiring and practical guide for emerging young leaders as well as seasoned change makers. In HEARTS TOUCHED WITH FIRE: How Great Leaders are Made (Simon & Schuster; May 10, 2022; 978-1-9821-7057-8; $29.00 hardcover), he draws on vivid examples from personal experience, history and recent headlines - from Churchill to AOC and dozens more across the public landscape - to shine a light on pathways forward. Gergen describes himself as a short-term pessimist but a long-term optimist. The next several years are likely to be rough in America, he believes, but the long-term outlook holds much greater promise. Our prospects for success, he argues, now rest heavily upon preparing rising generations for lives of service and leadership. As a White House adviser to Presidents Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Clinton, Gergen gathered invaluable lessons on leadership that he has shared for more than two decades with students at the Harvard Kennedy School. But he has long hoped to write a book that would spread those lessons more widely. In the past few years, that dream has taken on greater urgency, with growing threats to democracy at home and abroad. "Who would have believed," Gergen writes, "that for the first time since the Civil War, we would begin tearing ourselves apart? Who would have imagined that our democracy - and long-standing democratic traditions across the world - might be on the brink of collapse? But here we are. It feels as if we are driving on the side of a cliff in the middle of the night with our lights out. We all know it, but we cant seem to stop it." A Historic Passing of the Torch What we are witnessing, he notes, is an historic passing of the torch from Baby Boomers and the Silent Generation to Millennials and Gen Zers. The latter two generations, born between 1982 and 2009, are the biggest and diverse cohort in our history - and will soon be the most powerful. They have faced profound challenges in just the first two decades of the 21st century - including terrorism, deep recessions, climate disasters, racial and gender inequities, a deadly global pandemic and a poisonous polarization of our politics. The Millennials and Gen Zers are changing the face of leadership in many ways. Gergen shows how in the journeys of climate activist Greta Thunberg, the Parkland students fighting for gun sanity, Pakistani female education advocate Malala, and the organizers of the MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements. They are leading from the bottom up as well as the top down, skillfully using the power of social media and protest marches. Their experiments in leadership have brought out the biggest numbers in history in protests over women's rights, racial equity, voter suppression, gun rights and gay rights. Even as ways to exercise leadership are evolving, Gergen points out, some qualities and skills remain eternal. Courage and character, for example, have been prerequisites for great leadership through millennia, from the classical Greeks and Romans down to Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine. Gergen worked early in the White House for both Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. Both had courage but the first lacked character and was driven out by scandal; the second was a man of character who looks better and better through the rear view mirror. The Leader's Journey: Inner and Outer Gergen begins with a consideration of some of the most profound questions in understanding leadership. Does leadership really matter, after all? Why do we need great leaders? What are their most important qualities or traits? Why, in our society, has leadership largely been restricted in the past to white men? How can we best accelerate the spread of diversity? Gergen then describes the development of a leader in two parts: an inner journey and an outer journey. An effective leader, he argues, must first become self-aware and then achiever self-mastery. It is not enough just to be smart and talented. You must be able to master yourself before you can serve others. Your inner work should help you identify your core values and your True North. In sum, Gergen tells us how to become "author of your own life", as leadership guru and dear friend Warren Bennis puts it. Unfortunately, almost every rising leader suffers from harsh, unexpected blows - crucibles as they are called in leadership circles. They can take many shapes and forms, and they can destroy your professional as well as personal life. Yet with the right outlook, grit and perseverance, some of our most celebrated leaders have emerged stronger from such hardships. Crucibles also have the potential to instill in us great moral purpose and an opportunity to solidify our goals. As a rising leader conquers her inner journey, they must also make a transition from internal preparation to rubbing up against the outside world. In this outer journey, you must learn how to lead up, down and sideways - managing your boss, building your team, collaborating with others outside your team. Then again, how do you find a mentor? Or a sponsor? What's the difference between them? Importantly, how can you master the arts of public persuasion and deeply social media? As journey towards leadership isn't completed overnight; most fine it the work of a lifetime. Leadership in Action As the leader's inner and outer journeys converge, leadership must be put into action. You do not become a good leader, Gergen says, by studying under a lamp or earning a third or fourth academic degree. You must be "in the arena," as Theodore Roosevelt famously put it. Gergen explains why leaders must learn to lead in a crisis-making time to prepare when they can, then acting smartly when the crisis hits. Conversely, he also looks at the darkness that can descend when a leader abandons their True North and self-destructs. Finally, Gergen incorporates three of his favorite, but often overlooked, aspects of leadership: learning from history, a wicked sense of humor, and the creation of an integrated life so you have joy as well as passion. In addition, he appends a list of twenty key takeaways-an executive summary for people on the run-including such items as: Have Three Objectives Early, You're Never Too Young to Lead, and Maintain a Celestial Spark.In HEARTS TOUCHED WITH FIRE, David Gergen shares vital lessons on leadership gained from his remarkable half century in the public arena. It is not only a fitting graduation gift, but also a powerful assurance that we have every reason to be hopeful about the future if we remember who we are, take heart from the past, and unleash the idealism of today's passionate young leaders. ABOUT DAVID GERGEN David Gergen has devoted more than half a century to public service. Coming off a Navy stint, he served as a White House adviser to four US presidents of both parties: Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and Clinton. He recounted those experiences in a New York Times bestseller, Eyewitness to Power. In the 1980s, he began a second career, serving as the editor of US News & World Report and for five years a regular Friday night partner with Mark Shields as a PBS commentator on McNeil/Lehrer. Since 1999, he has served as a professor of public service and founding director of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard's Kennedy School. For more than two decades, he has also been a senior political analyst for CNN, where he is a respected voice in national and international affairs.Book Available on Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/Hearts-Touched-Fire-Great-Leaders/dp/1982170573

What does it take to scale a business from an idea to unicorn status? Suneera Madhani would say to look to family values—specifically the ones her Pakistani parents instilled in her. With her brother, Suneera co-founded Stax Payments, a fintech platform now processing $23 billion in payments, so it's clear that these immigrant family values are working. Suneera speaks with Erica about her three-bucket principle to prioritizing what matters most, Stax's rituals around shared meals, why they've chosen a hybrid model for the office, and how onboarding should be intentionally thought through from the moment a prospective hire receives an offer letter. Suneera also runs the CEO School, a platform dedicated to educating women entrepreneurs on how to scale their businesses and go from founder to CEO. Suneera launched this platform after learning that less than 2% of female founders ever break $1 million in revenue, so now she aims to increase that number. CEO School includes a podcast as well as a membership with monthly classes, community events, fireside chats, and a quarterly curated product box. Additionally, Suneera's new CEO School Course—an 8-week experience, with workshops on power, pitch, process, product, people, and profit—is open for enrollment May 19th-May 25th, and you can sign up below!  Please Subscribe, Rate and Review on Apple Podcasts You can also listen to the show on: StitcherOvercast GoogleSpotifyResources:Quotes:“Less than 2% of female founders ever break 1 million in revenue.”“This [success] was all a compilation of saying ‘yes.'

That's usually what happens when we say ‘yes' to too many things. We really have to recalibrate, where can I say ‘no'? And without feeling guilty about saying no. It's definitely a struggle.”“You can have your plate and you can fill it sky high, but usually if you look at a healthy plate, it's balanced in three components. That's how I view the three-bucket principle.”“I think onboarding begins from the offer letter; it begins even on the interview process…So we take it all the way back to say, ‘How can we drive incredible experience all the way through?'

Whether or not there was a U.S.-backed coup against Pakistan's deposed leader Imran Khan is a point of great debate. On a recent episode of Dispatches, Rania Khalek spoke with Pakistani professor Taimur Rahman, who argued that it was not a coup: https://youtu.be/nA5UCTz4oys But judging by the crowds in the street, many Pakistanis believe that there was in fact a coup and that the US played a major role.
