There can be hardly anyone who doesn’t know about the international services like rail service and air service. Especially the Bus service between India and Pakistan has been in the limelight and has got immense media coverage. Now recently the Domestic Dustbin Bus has extended its services. It now proudly calls itself as International Dustbin Service (IDS). Please my English readers forgive me for Urdu style but for your information it’s for this dustbin bus story only although the service has always been international and previously operated domestically.
The copies answering copies of BISE Quetta were sold by a boy, Pakistan’s leading TV channel Geo News reported.
The answering copies of FA exams, held two months ago under the Baluchistan Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Quetta (BISE), were sold by a boy by nine rupees per kilogram.
The owner of Roti shop Naik Muhammad tells that a boy brought those copies last month to sell them on a scrap shop but as he found scrap shop closed so I bought them from him by 9 rupees per kilogram which completely weighted 11 kilograms.
Whereas in London there was no such boy or Tandoor Wala so the rare copy of American Declaration of Independence was thrown to the dusts in BRITAIN’S National Archive.
The Daily Mail reports;
The document that changed history was approved on July 4, 1776, and this is one of only 26 copies known to have survived out of 200 printed that night. The poster size proclamation is in perfect condition and is said to be worth £5million.
The Quetta’s Examination answering paper, though, were sold just for 99 rupees were not worthless. The exams papers of BISE Quetta were solved by the students who are still waiting for the result.
The US Declaration, which helped establish the guiding principles of modern democracy, was written mainly by U.S. Founding Father Thomas Jefferson and is described by historians as ‘America’s birth certificate’.
It is not certain how the newly discovered copy came into British hands, but it is likely to have been captured by the Royal Navy during the American Revolutionary War which continued for seven years after the Declaration of Independence was signed. The last discovery of a Dunlap print was at a flea market in 1989, and it sold at auction in 2000 for £4.94million. Despite its value, the National Archives said it will not be selling the print, although it might be loaned to former foes in the U.S.
To listen the excuse for throwing an important document into a dump store will laugh you all. The spokesman of National Archives cleverly says;
‘It’s amazing that it has been lying here for so long undetected. It just shows how many documents we have.’
But what excuse by the chairman of BISE Quetta? The rare copy of American past was thrown to the dust by a former foe British and Not Americans but who did sold the examination copies of our future? The boy? Ridiculous. The competent authority should look into the matter, point out the criminals and punish them to give out the message that “the future of our country is not less important”
