The Dog Dilemma

I was never really afraid of Dogs, but when they go crazy you never know. Its really unbearable sometimes, when they start their discussions in the middle of the night. My life was dog-free and peaceful until i came to Karachi! But even then I was having a peace agreement with the dogs of my area.

It all happened when our ìKhataraî denied moving even an inch from our house, and we got orders from our uncle to push it from the back. That was fine too; I donít mind using my powers on such adventures, but the dogs did mind, when the car burst off [literally] and zoomed forward leaving us behind with 20 or more angry dogs surrounding us with a how-dare-you-disturbed-our-sleep looks.
I forgot if I was screaming or my voice was gone, but those 20 angry dogs were barking together telling us to run for our lives. All I remember is that we were knocking crazily on the door of our home [yeah, we even forgot thereís a push button for a thing called DOOR BELL!], and only took breath when we were safe behind the doors. I know we broke the Peace Treaty by ourselves, but Stupid Dumb Dogs didnít know it was the fault of that Khatara not us!

Thatís past now, but I foresee ìHistory repeating itselfî, because of the growing population of little ìpuppiesî in my area, and living with the fact that we still have a khatara anything can happen.

I wish there were some ìStray-Dog-Catchersî in the city, we do need to control them, coz I wonder if anyone out there likes them and the way they govern over Karachi???

    The interesting tale reminded me some stories… The dogs are really a problem I was always afraid of going to my Khala’s home at night just to avoid fearful encounters. Even I have changed my way due to DOGS last week ;) Authorities should do some remedies.

    I’d rather have dogs roaming the streets than being cruelly put to sleep for a quick fix to the stray dog problem.

    misha
    your place must not have stray dog problem
    and i think your mom never asked you to brought the “qeema” (minced meat)from butcher shop to your home with the dogs following you all the way.

    anys ways they are also karachittes like us so
    we better let them live unless they behave

    I don’t think there’s a place in Karachi that doesn’t have a dog problem, some areas worse off than others, but honestly, I’d rather have stray animals following me home than have them killed off in a cruel manner. We don’t really have any shelters or dog catchers to control the population and when the problem gets too bad, an instant solution is employed, which if often cruel. *shrug*

    Actually my chinese friends cant believe we have so many stray dogs. They said if they were us they would have started exporting ” DOG masala biriyani”.

    Imagine on the menu of an expensive french restaurant…”khi viande pour chiens” directly from the wild streets of karachi..
