Impossible expectations

This refers to Mosharraf Zaidi's article, ‘What does PM Sharif do next?’ (October 25). What the writer suggests is almost impossible. How can you expect a 64-year-old man to suddenly start liking and trusting those who do not speak the language he learnt (at his mother’s knee)? Or those who were not born and bred in his home town? It would be a miracle if he replaced his relatives and friends from positions of power in the country. 

Such people like to be told that they are doing a very good job. If any aide dares to point out their faults to them, he will either be dismissed or transferred to Chichawatni the next morning.
