Pakistan is full of surprises. The bilateral relationship between our two countries may be sour but our belligerent neighbour keeps giving us reasons to be amused. We all know that economic and intellectual advancements they have made. Take CPEC for example, the great economic visionaries of Pakistan have handed a large chunk of their resources to China to build, run and make a profit out of it, while Pakistan carries the debt burden and they are actually so happy about it that they cannot stop boasting.
Aviation technology is so advanced in Pakistan that a goat sacrifice is needed for flight operations. We all saw how a top-ranked Pakistani official stole a wallet of a Kuwaiti dignitary recently. They try to pass pictures of Palestinians as those of Kashmiri victims pellet guns. Do readers know that in 2016, the Tehreek-e-Insaaf party in Pakistan tried to pass a resolution in Punjab assembly seeking a ban on Doraemon? Yes, the cartoon, we are not joking.
However, India should be really worried that Pakistan has discovered a new chemical formula for water. A person of the stature of the Chief Justice of Pakistan has revealed it. Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has just revealed a scientific breakthrough to the world.
How did I miss this?
Chief Justice of Pakistan: We have the formula for water, H 2 0

It is H 2 Zero. Not H2O like everyone believes apparently. He said it at the closing ceremony of an International Water Symposium in Islamabad recently. Such pearls of wisdom were bound to be ridiculed by those of little faith.
The official highest position of wisdom.
Best authority on Dam & water resources.
H to zero https://t.co/1PrY1MThxV

Just when Indians thought Azhar Ali’s legendary run-out was the funniest thing they had watched about a Pakistani, their Chief Justice has jumped up to claim the crown.
In case you are thinking that things cannot get crazier than this, here is another pearl of wisdom, Pakistan style. Pakistan’s former Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid refused to pronounce ‘Middlesex’, the county in England where Imran Khan’s children live, because, he claimed, ‘good Muslims’ should not, or they would have to do a ‘wuzoo'(ablution) for the mistake.
Pakistan’s newly elected PM keeps worrying about Kashmir too much, even yesterday, he has received a nasty rebuttal from our external affairs ministry where the spokesperson basically told Imran Khan to ‘mind his own business’ in polite vocabulary. Looking at the kind of scientific knowledge being displayed by top powers, one is compelled to wonder if these new formulas of chemistry are a product of overconsumption of Chinese food or a dearth of Afghani opium.
