Another week wasted

So, Wednesday and Thursday have been slow days, and Friday doesn’t seem to be any different. All the gas stations are closed and people can’t get out because of that. Imagine all the financial loss by keeping all business closed for four days. That’s not something our country can afford. Why do I feel like terrorists have won?

    I completely agree with u. Mourning does not mean closure of all economically significant institutions. We think that strikes, extended holidays or curfews damage the government. It damages none but the ppl of Pakistan.

    May Allah guide us all to the Straight Way.

    Gas stations are open, actually, and they have crowds of over two hundred people each waiting to get their petrol. Looks like a potential riot scene to me, everyone please be carefull out there.

    There is a lot of uncertainty, the fear that a mob might start pelting stones or might start burning vehicles is logical, .. I hate being stuck at home. But it is the only way to protect our selves ….

    I guess the pumps are imposing a quota because of limited supply. Clearly, no one will drive out with a fuel tanker, considering a fire engine was burned down!
    I guess supply situation will ease by sunday. Till then, have patience. Im hitch hiking!

    its horrible/.

    Yesterday, apparantly my floor was the onlyone with 100% attendance across chundrigar. all other floors were sane enough to come in for a short while. the problem: lunch crisis! there was no food outlet open, down tio the smallest dhaba in the pizza hut lane. considering how we have a tradition of staying in office full hours, we were famished. except for Memon fast food and Enterprise, we were starved.

    Fuel is a problem. there is no water filter-reimbursement. we are out of drinking water too. staying at office becomes worse by the moment. thank heavens some places were open today.

    Oh we have no more water at our place as no ‘tanker wala’ is willing to come down here.

    Yar sab log mob say daray hoay q hain? why dont they fight back?

    IllusionFS, it would be a terribly hard to fight a mob, that is hell-bend on destroying every thing in its path.

    one thing I can’t understand.strike is gose on, every facility is almost closed.coz of fears.but this is brings only economical damage, and if this strike gose more long, may some panic will be happen.why pakistani gov is not take serious reaction for solve this inconvinience? dose musharaf think pay little amount for lost lives is enough??not visiting for victim’s house door by door, just sit back in sofa with full ac?only puplic is suffer with this condition?bomber has done complete his planning,and tragedy left for public.really i feel powerless and helpless.why so?this country is not battle zone, then why can’t handle situation????

    talk about financial and economical loses- the women expo was all set to start with a bang on thursday, they had it planned so nicely, likin everything went wrong. they had to cancel the formal inaugeration and all and today it was complete mayhem, no seminar could be held, invitations had to be cancelled….everything was in utter confusion, the organizers were so flutered. it was supposed to be a big event and now its really a low profile thing!

    Ooh My ! we almost forgot Women’s Expo , It was the first time women from around the country were to show their talent and worth, and yeah these things cost’s a lot there is very little constructive work going on and that also get Ruined by such mayhem. It’s an other great loss, the people of Pakistan bare.

    And yeah there is an other call for strike and black day on Friday.
