The ultimate question

I do beg your pardon and offer my apologies for going out and asking the ultimate questions. I do realize that one is not supposed to do this, but I must.

Is it me or does Karachi seem cleaner, greener and with better roads all of a sudden?

    so u asking why is karachi looking GOOD, rather asking this awkard question, u should PRAISE karachi for looking CLEAN, & GREENER !!!:D

    it is getting cleaner, but overpopulated too. anytime something good happens here, something or someone has to spoil it. wouldnt u agree?

    lets hope we continue with the green and good things keep happening all over the city.

    and yes, seriously karachi is worthy of praise.

    all of a sudden? its been looking better for quite some time now, the roads which were started some time back are now completed but alot of other work has been done in the last year. it looks like u r in a better mood now so Karachi looks cleaner to u :-)
    Still one hopes that all gets even better! (including the law and order situation!)

    This is good news and thank you for letting us know. I know it will be good for everyone’s health if karachi gets greener.

    If Karachi gets cleaner and greener it will overcome probably its most obvious drawback, Otherwise Karachi rocks – see eg thoughts of a visitor linked below. By the way his photos of Karachi are a feast for the eyes, really sweet!! heres the link

    yeah i also wonder,where did you find greener?some model park? eh?:>

  11. Zag (unregistered) on February 27th, 2006 @ 10:56 am

    Cmon now, with so many parks and green belts popping up, its a wonder that so many ppl are still asking where do you see the green….. just look around you and you’ll see so many lil things happening….

    as for the cleaner….. i think we should give it another year or two when all this construction is completed, then we’ll be able to see the cleaner part :)

    I will not have people pass comments on my green shades. They are precious to me. My preciousssss.

    As for the greener and cleaner part. DUDES GET OUT and roam the city streets. The city is MUCH MUCH better than an year ago. Roads, greenery, cleanliness. Major changes have taken place.

    I do agree with you that karachi is way better compared to what it used to be. Living here in Karachi since August last year I do feel a degree of change in the infrastructure. Sometimes we should be happy with our environment because it is good for our health as well not be worried about at least one thing in our life

    I left karachi in 2001 for work.I was 21 then.Im located in Doha since then. I visit karachi almost every 6 months.Infact since 2004 i visited karachi every month.Everytime i go to karachi i do see good changes in infrastructure and facilities.I would like to point out PTCL help line ( 17 ), Government Dept like NADRA, no more Kachi parchi – pakki parchi, Passport Office, Public Transport System (not the mini buses nd coaches. I would say that, police Dept has not changed much, i have noticed only on Sharah e Faisal, the traffic police is monitoring the vehicles properly and i was given a ticket as well.But i have to except that i gave him 200rs to save my international driving license…The fly overs on Sharah e Faisal.The time i left unemployment rate was much much higher.Most of the people now even after graduating from small universities get jobs, thanks to the private firms, companies and to investors who feels the worth of our country. As far as cleanliness and maintainence of the city is concerned, it broadly lies in the hands of the people who live there and who are actually using it.All this and a lot more has come within 4 years of time which was ruined since more then a decade.Look at our lifestyles, we have almost every pleasure of life,either related to technology or facility. We have top artists,musicians,fashion designers,engineers,doctors just name it and we have it.Quality and quantity gets better by time and perseverance.We are hardworkers and very clever by birth.After working with other nationals sometimes i feel i can dodge them very easily and overcome them very strongly because pakistani’s have and impression of being intelligent..But when i go back to Pakistan, i feel being dodged now.We are a country, we are not some nation who needs to build infrastructure we only need to refine it and make the most of it.
    Only if the person living in his house can maintain and keep 10metres of space in front of his house clean and tidy there will be no dirt left.It all lies in our hands, hands of the people of Pakistan. Unity – Faith – Discipline words of our Quaid. We have Unity we have Faith but we badly lack in Discipline. We should be an optimist and not a pessimist. I dont know when i am gonna migrate back to my country but my body will rest in the land where i was born and raised and which has given me this beautiful life.
    Luv Pakistan Luv Karachi
