Googled Positive News Pakistan and Wow!

By Sharmeen All day I have had a bitter taste in my mouth, combined with this choking heavy feeling. Whatever I do, whatever I read gets overshadowed by the negative coverage our media broadcasts.

1.I am very impressed with this site, however, why are you ignoring the fashion and movie industry? I did not see any link for Miss Canada World contest winners.
