Suraj ko Charagh’s around 630 in the evening. The sun is still out. A little overcast but the visibility is very good. Certainly no need to turn on the headlights. Yet, the street lights are lit up. Meanwhile, some neighborhood in the city is braving the power cuts.

    well these may be odd but can u imagine the governer house or chief minister house without electricity.. probably no
    so as long as we donot conserve this will be an issuefor all of us

    its a very common sight.. street light and 400 X 20 watts flood lights at intersections turned on all day long… when municipal workers are forced to join government sponsored rallies then instead of doing their work then things like these are not surprising …

    My dear Umar, not some but all neighbourhoods are experiencing power cuts.

    But then again, the Club Road vicinity may just be the lucky one.

    This is very common in Karachi, even residents often keep their lights on.

    is there some sort of schedule availabe that would highlight the approximate timings of loadshedding in specific areas thus allowing some concerned karachitttes to plan their days accordingly… there should be because if we’re suffering through the power outages at least we should know when it’s gonna hit us…
