Headline, February 03 2019/ '' 'REBRANDING GREAT REPUBLICS' ''




OVER THE PAST FEW DECADES what you mostly read, or assumed, or knew about Pakistan, was mostly right. As of the last few years, say, since 2009-10-11, it is totally wrong and rubbished.

This great masterly transformation is the work and dedicated accomplishment of the students of Pakistan, every citizen of Pakistan, and a few of Pakistan's  fearless, beautiful, caring and outstanding daughters and sons :

Merium, Rabo, Haleema, Dee, Aqsa, Sameen, Armeen, Areesha, Saima, Zilli, Juniper, Hussain, Shahzaib, Haider,  Bilal, Salar, Ali, Reza Haider, Ghazi and Danyial.

They pulled Pakistan back from the cusp of a dark abyss, and some of these and those, in the fullness of time ahead, will qualify for the world class coveted honor of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Proud Pakistan, now, led by the Great Captain, Imran Khan, is a democratic, peace loving, mature and wise republic coming to grips by the hour with its complex and profound problems.

The World Students Society - for every subject in the world, rises to give this great nation, Republic of Pakistan, the citizens of Pakistan. a standing and resounding, unending ovation.

And Should the Founder Framers get the best operational research and publishing up to 20 a day, Sam Daily Times is likely to be taught in most educational institutions of the world.

TWENTY YEARS AGO, AN OPINION WRITER for The New York Times described Colombia as a country dominated by ''drug killings'', paramilitary massacres, guerrilla kidnappings, death squads murders and street crime.

Five years before that, a 1994 article in The Washington Post grappled with the question of whether people would want to visit war-torn Croatia. ''Only the more intrepid will consider a trip,'' the article stated.

And New Yorker article the same year described the genocide in Rwanda as being so dangerous that foreigners providing aid never went beyond the airport perimeter. One street was described as a place  ''where everything is shot up and every building riddled.''

In the years since, conflict and strife have receded in those countries, with infrastructure rebuilt and economies recovering.

And through a combination of marketing, social media and development - and with the fading associations of discord that come with the passage of time - these three countries are now booming tourists destinations, topping travel rankings and bucket lists and flooding Instagram feeds.

More than three million visitors went to Colombia in 2017, a 200 percent increase from 2006, and the country has been ranked as a leading destination on dozens of travel lists, including The Times 2018  52 Places to Go List. Hilton Hotels plans to open three properties there by 2020.

In Croatia, 19.7 million tourists visited in 2018, compared with about 1.5 million in 1995. And in Rawanda, tourism was up to 1.5 million visitors in 2017 from 826,000 in 2007, with tourists attracted to the country's lush rain forests, the growing art scene in its capital capital, Kigali, and its gorilla conservation efforts.


Despite having one of the fastest growing economies in Africa and and often cited as one of the most impressive cases of post-conflict recovery. Rwanda is widely known for one horrific event, said Sunny Nitayombya the marketing and communication manager for the Rwanda Development Board.

That event, of course, is the 1994 genocide, in which 800,000 people, mostly ethnic Tutsis were killed by the majority Hutus in 100 days.

''Throw in the fact that there's only been one major Hollywood movie about Rwanda, which fuels the negative perception of this small African country that's kind of unknown already, so even if you know a little about  Rwanda it's probably in the prism of 'Hotel Rwanda,'  Mr. Nitayombiya said.

Although Colombia's conflict was vastly different from Rwanda's, the idea that drugs were everywhere and that a Communist insurgency also stoked violence have been fueled by popular shows like Netflix's ''Narcos'' and the Colombian telenovela ''Pablo Ecobar, The Drug Lord.''

Much as in Rwanda, those charged with promoting the country could not ignore the past.
''We didn't want to hide away from the fact that, yes, there was violence in the country, and guy like Pablo Ecobar is associated with the country,'' said Julian Guerrrrero, vice minister for tourism in Colombia.

Until this summer, Mr. Guerrero was the vice-president of ProColombia, a governmental agency in charge of promoting Colombian exports, internationalism tourism and foreign investments in Colombia.
