Our traffic, the defining line
For all the people who honk at others, at a red light, basically trying to get them to move ….all I can say is… you all show your crassness. For those who do not stop at red lights in Karachi, clearly you are just a wee bit of a “lesser” human being.
I will take greater pride in following the traffic rules only because that separates me from the herd. It no longer matters whether you are “educated” or drive big fancy cars…. You show yourself to be human being less worthy of respect simply because you fail to show respect to the laws of the land, and to the safety of your fellow humans. Each time, I come across one of you, I will smile as that will just make me “better” than one more human on earth, and as the goal is to elevate yourself and grow, I will be closer to that goal. So carry on – all you who think you are above the law, each time you act like this, you only put the rest of us in more exclusive company.
I was taught that no one is lesser or greater or that arrogance is a bad thing, but today I throw all that aside…
There is a new reason to feel “smug” and elitist now. The separation is simply those who follow the traffic rules and those who do not. Forget education, money, fame, family backgrounds or professional stature etc. those are all secondary, just showing respect to your fellow humans is reason enough to separate one from another and these days in Karachi people stopping at red lights is such a rare sight, that it’s a very small exclusive elitist club now. Following traffic rules shows your outlook towards humanity in general and it’s all too clear – people in Karachi DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR FELLOW HUMANS. The roads are the one place everyone from all the different backgrounds etc. all come together and you can just see how sad that mix turns out to be.
