Billboard billboard in the sky…

Picture Credit: Dawn

Last night:

Half asleep, tired from work, cursing traffic at the Hotel Metropole road.


A huge billboard along with the steel pole on the pavement. Underneath it lay a crushed rikshaw. Perhaps the governement will realize now that the skies are meant for the birds to soar in it, for the sun to shine, not to be surrounded by a gazillion ugly billboards.

    not a first time. PSO billboards almost landed on the bonet near my house in 2003 while i was employed there. the local govt is aiming at removing these huge boards. they kill the charm of a city. and now pose a threat. sigh.

    Zeeshan – I bet the rickshaw is somewhere inside the mangled mess, hell the alto atleast resisted qute a lot.

    Did you guys see the mangled billboard on GoraQabarustan right next to the new flyover it was a mess last evening when I saw it, at first I thought it was some Ghundas but now it adds up, fierce winds – wow were the winds that bad or were the boards stacked on a deck of cards?

    Teeth Maestro, looks more like a Suzuki Cultus than an Alto to me :)

    The devil is in the details!
