Wastage of Time !!!!!

We Karachiites are the most educated citizens of Pakistan, but some of our activities are really worse like wasting time….. I was at a Walima Party last night…. The Card says “Gathering at 9:00, Refreshments at 10:00 ”and a note emphasis Punctuality….. Sadly the Punctual Hosts arrived after 10:30…..
How can we become acquainted with the importance of Time??? And when??

    That is why I have stopped attending such functions, otherwise when young I would love to attend relatives wedding functions.

    Honestly, I think the “Be punctual” bit is more to try and get people to show up earlier, rather than at the arranged time. As it is, when hearing of the 9:30 invite, everyone will be leaving their houses at 10:30 or later, hoping to arrive in a full mehfil and meet everyone in one go and leave. Even the hosts have given up now.

    On the flip side, should you actually come at the designated time, you would only fine the caterers setting up the chairs and stage and one or two lone members of the family for your trouble. How many times would you stand for this untill you too become one of the late masses?

    I’ll be attending my brothers wedding in January. It will be the first wedding in the past decade and the first visit to Pakistan in 7 years.
    I was kinda hoping things would have changed. Guess not!!!!!

    I think the biggest problem is that now one wants to be the first to try and make an effort to be punctual ñ hence the buck doesnít stop anywhere! Iím a stickler for time, thankfully my whole family is and all of mine and my sisterís shaadi functions were dot on the time. Everyone has to make an effort on their part ñ no Messiah from heaven is going to show up magically and cure this national ailment of oursÖ.!

    I think it has become an unnecessary tradition to get to the venue at 10, 10:30 or even at 11:00….the most obnoxious tradition though…we really need to make an effort and make these kind of occassions a nice and decent ones and convenient for everyone (keeping in mind the guests who are being invited)

    u should have walked away from the wedding…y did u dignify it with ur presence?


  13. Ali (unregistered) on November 23rd, 2005 @ 9:17 pm

    i usually ask the person inviting me, be it a wedding or whatever.. is the time pakistan standard time or whatever? coz if its paki standard time, which is +7 GMT nowadays.. i simply add two hours to my watch… :)
