On a positive note…

It’s always about mobile theft in this city. Thefts lead to gunshots and deaths too. This time though, it was different. S lost her phone in August 2006. It got stolen rather, and she reported it at CPLC. This year, in May she got a call from the policewalas at one am in the morning, reporting that her phone had been retrieved. After showing them the phone’s dabba and warranty card, she was free to take her phone back. With no bribe involved. It sounds too good to be true. Why are we so immune to the injustices in this city, that something like this, that’s our right, seems like a blessing?

    Check the type and model of phone that was stolen. Maybe its not worth it for them to keep it anymore or is not really of any value now. So its a good piece for PR work for the cops. Just my thought.

    bahhh! Oh WOWWWWW out of 100000s of cell phone snatched throughout the city, a few are found months after the owner has already bought a new one. WOWWWW… great achievement!

    We live in a SCREWED UP city with SCREWED UP system that has been IMPOSED on us (some say we are the ones who made this system). Yes, injustice is something that we have made peace with! Pathetic!

    Seems like an inside job – someone definitely knew that your grandparents had 900K stashed in cash at home!

    The best happened with a colleague, when his neighbour called him to check the phone his son recently bought from the Saddar Phone market with ONE YEAR WARRANTY.

    It has pictures of my colleague in supposingly the packed-brand-new phone … it turned out that the stolen phones are making their way to phone market with new packin-g and fake (or real) one year warranty.
