My greatest ambition in life is to serve my country. I know that this is not an easy job. I also know that there are many ways of serving one’s country. It is not enough to say that my greatest ambition in life is the serving of my country. I shall have to make it clear what sort of service I shall perform.
I know that the best service of my country, in the first place, would be to become a good citizen. I may choose to be a teacher, an engineer or a doctor, I may become a businessman or I may go into the political field. But whatever I become, I shall not be useful to my country, if I do not realize my rights and my duties.
My first step in realizing the ambition of my life, therefore, would be to make myself an ideal citizen. I shall never become corrupt and shall never tolerate corruption in others. I shall be just fair to others. In al things, I will think of the general interest of the community first and of my personal interest only afterwards. Whenever there is a clash between my personal interest and the social interest, I shall   not press my own claims. If I can live up to this ideal, I would have a healthy influence on everybody. I can bring about no reform in others if I do not reform myself.
Great men like the Quaid-e-Azam have served our country by taking up the social and political work and by devoting all their time to it. This is not possible for everyone. My way of serving my country would be to take up some profession seriously. I would try to find pout what is the best that I can give to my country. I would try to discover my gifts. Am I best fitted to be a doctor or an engineer? Can I be most useful as a teacher or a businessman? This is what I have yet to decide. I am an ordinary man, and therefore I do not aspire to become the Quaid-e-Azam. But our country needs all sort of men. A doctor also serves his country if he is honest and humane in his work. An engineer is equally useful to his country. I will contribute my share for the progress...
