plans for the strike?

index1p.jpgFriday is once again, a strike, as called by the MMA i believe. What will you do tomorrow? Go to office? stay home and wait it out? Sleep? or Party?

My plan is to come to office, since it’ll probably be open, spend the day, and go back after maghrib when the ‘zor’ of the strike passes. Why? Because otherwise, saturday will be declared open (when we actually have it off), and i have many things planned in that day. Plus, not having two consecutive days off ruins the ‘mood‘ of the weekend.

    Same Here!

    BTW if everyone join hands Strike wouldnt be possible. The Strike actually get success when people mentally accept it beforehand (read want a holiday). Furthermore, if law & order agencies cooperate People distorting the peace of the city during a failed strike can be stopped. I often wonder what the hell these agencies were doing at those times when banks, pertrol pumps are torched or traffic signals are broken by them. How the hell these people manage to escape, v all know the answer, but still if govt. wants sincerely they can easily make the straike call collapse.

    Well, It totally depends on the couple of days before the strike, one may plan to come to the office if the previous days were not very hectic, but if they were, they would prefer having a long sleep in their warm beds and waking up late and having some good Paratha – Anda – Kabab and chaii naashta at home, fresh by mums hands!:D

    Keeping this in mind the answer to the question, why do people accept strikes, bet they really don’t care what the mullah says or what the politicians say (I also don’t know why they called for a strike :S). The reason why they stay at home is due to the conditions at thier jobs. (i’m not talking about all) But most of the people have tense jobs. they would prefer to be at home. Moqay ki talaash mein hona, what we call it.

    As they say “aa’way ka aa’wa hi bigra hoa hai”. But on the other hand, its the people like the most of us here (Anathema, umar, discreet etc), who stick to what they have to do when they have to do, and try no political shit comes and ruin the plans of the day.
    Cheers! to u all!
