Perhaps you would also have experienced the taste of an imaginary Kingdom. Imagination is the only realm where no one can halt your handiwork; whatever you desire is only at an thoughts length, whether you wish to build a kingdom, whether you wish to become a world superpower, whether you fancy Nobel medals or whether you wish to break all the Guinness World Records, there is nothing stopping you.
If building imaginary governments was previously only relegated to sweet night dreams or to the imaginations of the lazy jobless, Ghani however has now given it a real form. We are currently experiencing a wave of unprecedented imaginary governments, imaginary offices, imaginary education, imaginary armies and imaginary police forces being built in the world of realpolitik.
As many international investigative organizations begun running the Ashraf Ghani government through the litmus test over the past few months, it was concluded that many offices of this government are imaginary with no exterior matrix and application.
The American organization of SIGAR declared a few months earlier that 769 million dollars spent by the Ministry of Education have gone to imaginary ghost schools. It should be stated here that the only difference between the offices assigned by Ashraf Ghani and the imaginary Kingdoms of lethargic bums is that if they were to organize the offices of the entire planet, it would cost them squat but even though the offices assigned by Ashraf Ghani are imaginary however they devour millions of dollars, which reminds a person of the story: Adam is missing but his scent remains.
The intellect (Ashraf Ghani’s title) with his intellectual and cognitive powers has not only built imaginary schools but has also prepared huge numbers of army battalions and many subdivisions. However a few days earlier an America newspaper opened the door on this secret and wrote that the high number of security forces declared by the government is largely imaginary with no physical component to it.
The topic of thought and imagination popped to my mind today because a case in the structure of this imaginary kingdom was just cracked open after a recent development. The senator of Faryab province, Naqibullah Faiq, speaking at the Parliament declared that the reason behind the Taliban takeover of Gormach district is due to imaginary broken management.
According to Faiq, Ashraf Ghani in his fantasy had dispatched 500 fully armed and trained troops for the defense of Ghormach, with the monthly salary of each soldier paid on time however in reality there were actually less than 200 troops stationed on the ground.
The exposition of secrets of Ghormach in this imaginary kingdom raises eyebrows, perhaps many other formations in the intellect’s regime are also fantastical imaginations? Perhaps the reason why Ashraf Ghani was given the title of ‘intellect’ is due to his high cerebral thought process? Although poets encourage indulgence in imagination however it has two major defects: One is that high caliber imagination is considered the characteristics of children. You might have noticed children putting a stick between their legs and imagine it to be a Mustang horse, this shows the power of their imagination, turning simple sticks into a horses and even cars.
Another flaw of imaginary kingdoms that it cannot bear the brunt of reality. It is equated to sweet dreams or mirages experienced by stoners worldwide which can lose all taste in a split second. That why it is said:
Became a king through power of imagination
But awoke to the reality of a monk
