About the Author
Waqas Ahmad Saad a guy of 28 from Southern Punjab -the very deprived part of the country started a journey in student politics in the second half of 2000's era and faced severe repercussions. His active participation in lawyers' movement for the restoration of democracy lead to his brief but rigorous imprisonment that disturbed his academics. This initiative nevertheless gave him some prominence albeit in a minor way and only for that particular span of time. After attaining a degree in Agriculture Engineering in 2008 he started writing articles in leading newspapers of the country with a particular focus on agriculture mechanization and modern irrigation systems but gradually he made a tilt towards socioeconomic and political affairs as well. In 2009 he launched a campaign through his writings for the provision of state owned barren agriculture land to the Agriculture /Forestry and Veterinary graduates of Punjab for the purpose of agricultural research and production. The campaign was successful somewhat and though the writer himself remained deprived yet many of his colleagues were allotted state owned land on lease by the government of Punjab. His articles covering socioeconomic, political and international issues got attentions of the deprived and discriminated factions of the society but here too he was pushed back and remained deprived from attaining the highest level in mainstream media by the journalistic elite of the country.
