Everybody seems to be really ecstatic about Obama winning the election. The Kenyans went as far as declaring a nation-wide public holiday on account of him being the son of a Kenyan, though Obama is yet to proudly acknowledge his connection to his father. Heck, there were celebrations in Lyari even, I heard. I guess he played football with the locals there during his visit to Karachi in the 80s.
Someone shared on our university group a link to Obama's victory speech in Chicago:
If a black shiny boy from the south side of Chicago can do this, I hope we, in Pakistan, learn from the history and finally get rid of corrupt army and so called politicians. No matter where you stand this history in US and in Chicago, Grand Park is the place of history. For just to give a perspective, it is like a brilliant and intelligent middle class person from Lalo-Khait in Karachi or Mughalpura Lahore beat Banazir (Late) and Army at the same time.
