Please, read Wikipedia article on Pakistan.The article mentions: “It has a 1,046-kilometre (650 mi) coastline along the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman in the south and is bordered by Afghanistan and Iran in the west, India in the east and China in the far northeast. The region forming modern Pakistan was the site of several ancient cultures including the neolithic Mehrgarh and the bronze era Indus Valley Civilisation. Pakistan is a federal parliamentary republic consisting of four provinces and four federal territories. Pakistan has the seventh largest standing armed force and is the only Muslim-majority nation to possess nuclear weapons. The name Pakistan means Land of (the) Pure in Urdu and Persian. The Indus region, which covers a considerable amount of Pakistan, was the site of several ancient cultures including the Neolithic era’s Mehrgarh and the bronze era Indus Valley Civilisation (2500–1500 BCE) at Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro. Waves of conquerors and migrants from the west—including Harappan, Indo-Aryans, Persians, Greeks, Sakas, Parthians, Kushans, Hephthalites, Afghans, Arabs, Turks and Mughals—settled in the region throughout the centuries, influencing the locals and being absorbed among them. However, in the medieval period, while the eastern provinces of Punjab and Sindh grew aligned with Indo-Islamic civilisation, the western areas became culturally allied with the Iranian civilisation of Afghanistan and Iran. Modern day Pakistan was at the heart of the Indus Valley Civilisation; that collapsed in the middle of the 2nd millennium BCE and was followed by the Vedic Civilisation, which also extended over much of the Indo-Gangetic plains. The Indo-Greek Kingdom founded by Demetrius of Bactria included Gandhara and Punjab from 184 BCE, and reached its greatest extent under Menander, establishing the Greco-Buddhist period with advances in trade and culture. In 712 , the Arab general Muhammad bin Qasim conquered Sindh and Multan in southern Punjab.

  9. How do we put these theoretical underpinnings into practice? We must recognize that immoral acts are never expedient. The essence of justice is keeping one’s word. The advice in “De Officilis” did not work for Cicero’s son, who was a drunkard, sold his services to Augustus, and lent his name to the new order of Augustus. Although Cicero’s son did not follow the advice given in “De Officilis,” Cicero left future generations this enduring statement of moral justice.

She writes down everything people say with each gift. . . Then after the gifts are done she makes an announcment – . . “Now, (name of mom to be) may not know this but I had her room bugged the night this baby was made.” (pause for people to laugh or joke) “Here is just a example of what they said that night in the dark.” . . “Oh so cute!” . “I want that”. “I didn’t know they made that in that size!” . “I love that color”. . I’ve never played it but on the show it was very funny & I laugh each time I see that episode.
