You might have heard about Miss India, Miss Ukrain, Mr. Pakistan etc etc for their achievements in several fields. World starts knowing countries with these celebrities but there are few who are celebrities but are never come on international fronts for their heroic deeds. Here is one example of Chacha Pakistani. Chacha is alternate for paternal Uncle in Urdu and in Pakistani culture very respectful relationship. Addressing somebody with word “chacha” shows not only respect but for sure inclusion into family. Thus Chacha Pakistani is a paternal Uncle of community who love Pakistan but unfortunately When searched for “Chacha Pakistani” was surprised with the fact that didn’t find any relevant material on Google. Previously Google with its sophisticated search mechanism search necessary information with even unpopular keywords. It was matter of disappointment that no one has written about Javed Akhtar named Chacha Pakistani for his unique way of celebrating Independence day and out matched love for Pakistan.
Javed Akhtar is 55 years old driver with Express Newspaper resident of Karachi previously has been working a mill laborer. Whenever Pakistanis are asked what have they done for Pakistan; there answer usually is we did not get chance to anything or we did not do anything for Pakistan. But this man found not only a chance but in his own way doing something for Pakistan that is arousing patriotic feelings in Pakistanis. I selected him to give tribute because he has simple and straightforward love for Pakistan and want this to expand. He invisibly playing a great role to make people of Pakistan acquaint with the purpose of Independence. People owe on this day to bring prosperity and progress to country but no one act in accordance but this man celebrates even for purpose.
Javed Akhtar takes an expedition on his motorcycle that starts from August 1 with a prayer offered at Qauid-e-Azam Mizaar and continued till August 14 on Minnar-e-Pakistan. He purposfully decorates his motorcycle with flags of Pakistan and pictures of National heroes including Qauid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Illama Iqbal, Liaqat Ali Khan etc. Speakers installed on his motorcycle on-airs nation songs and capture the attention of people. This symbolically decorated Motorcycle has become very popular during last six years. He dresses up in Green and white color during whole of his voyage hence looks like Chacha Pakistan.
He tells his story as how did he get this idea to celebrate Independence day with to provoke zeal and zest among masses of Pakistan that according to him was dying. He told that he went to cinema with his wife after long time to watch a movie but bewildered with a situation when people kept sitting when National anthem was played; only he and his wife stood up to honor anthem. He revealed he then decided to visit several cities of Pakistan to arouse love for Pakistan.
He says he was wrong in perceiving that whole Pakistan has lost love for country, his realization was people still are ready to sacrifice for their country if needed. He tells he previously was never attended by people; when he started in 2002 but now people not only show love towards him but encourage him and this year few others are accompanying him. He is excited to make this two motorcycles group to a big and large convoy. However He wants Government officials to initiate or at least participate in such activities.
