    I quite honestly do not understand what the gripe is all about. Time square in Karachi ?? Good to aim high. But let us sort out our basic problems of Power and Atta first.

    The power company has saved me twice this week already from eternal damnation and peer presure by shuting down my computer in the nick of time…..thankyou!

    I used the new Lyari bypass yesterday, and it was one helofa ride. I reached from Sohrab Goth to Garden in like 10 minutes. At the moment only Southbound lane is open, but its nice and roller coaster like ride up and down.

    A good selection of the picture to convey your message across that Karachi, the city should become the symbol of life (light). That it is everyone desire that lives in Karachi or have some kind of affiliation with it. Not necessarily we need the digital outdoor advertisement gear because that will start ugly advertisement war in all kind of merchants. The result will be disastrous a craze of ugly vibrant color signs in all direction. However to get to make Karachi a symbol of life we will have to consider managing our entire requesting sources and re-manage our delivering resources. A good deed of shuffle to align civic and civil organizations by hiring educated qualified individual especially the young blood of the city/cities who is indirectly capable to get the job done once and get it right the first time.

    Any sort of government official should be capable of managing its department, and its projects and their project teams to develop the whole country and it is districts. Deploying developments are not an easy thing and cannot be implemented over and over therefore systematic planning must be achieved by considering the best advice from the experts in the particular field. Countrywide universities would be best resource to attain that knowledge and expertises. Student of those universities should also be kept involve to participate in the whole process. Their Master and Bachelor degrees should be issued considering heavy research on developing projects to enhance the whole country. Off course this would require to a have brilliant individual to run those universities itself and that can be attain by following to hire the right person for the job who can mange to run the day to day operation of the department or any organization.

    In the end, we have to admit that our whole civic and civil departments are run with incompetent government officials that instead off running the department starts running on their personal agendas, which produce disastrous public service to the people. People in return turn around and do not do any better either to return the favor but they do the same by using illegal tactics to beat the basic purpose of a civilized society. A decision by whole Pakistani nation on February 18th by electing the same corrupt politicians who looted the whole country in the past looks like a mistake Americans made by choosing George W Bush for the second term in the oval office. The current political picture is already showing a chaotic outlook of the political situation of the country in coming days.

    To have anything special in the city or country everyone needs to have a temperament and motivation to achieve what other nations and citizens have achieved in other parts of the world. Lets get advantage of this medium to promote the enlightenment of the society and redefine our thinking from every aspect of the prospect of a nation. Now the time has come to decide which direction we should be heading to, a direction of destruction or construction, a direction of extremism or moderation, a direction of feudalism or liberation, a direction of unity or division, a direction of insanity or sanity to make your administrators to self discipline their selves when it comes to providing for its people. The present city government of Karachi is projecting a right direction on the path of realism and practicalism to bring the middle class order in the country. We need a middle class revolution in all walks of life to get rid of present form of society.
