A View from Pakistani Scholars
During the revolution in Iran, the revolutionaries coined an interesting term "weststruck." This term very appropriately describes a particular strata of society found in practically all third world countries. In Pakistan (as in other such countries) it is that segment of society you would call the upper-middle and upper classes. They generally have a penchant for all things western. They wear either Guess, Calvin Klein or Levis 501s. Know every top ten hit, have probably seen more American films than you have, and know the latest "in" terms. They travel mainly to the USA or Europe for the summers and to Dubai in the winters. They live on Mcdonalds, KFC, and Pizza Hut. Guzzle Pepsi, and spend Friday evenings at TGIF because it's karoke night.

Want to communicate with these scholars?
ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS WRITE AN E-MAIL ADDRESSED EITHER TO REHMAT OR TO TAYMUR. WE WILL MAKE UP A MEMO AND CIRCULATE IT AND YOU WILL HAVE YOUR E-PALS. WE'VE DONE THIS BEFORE WITH OTHER IB SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD ON OTHER TOPICS AND ISSUES, AND IN FACT PROVIDED INFORMATION TO THEM THROUGH SUCH COLLABORATION TO COMPLETE PROJECTS AND ASSIGNMENTS. THE SYSTEM ENCOURAGES THIS KIND OF MULTI-CULTURAL EXCHANGES. WE WELCOME THIS DIALOGUE.
