The Solution?

KESC, burn it! Break it! Kill them! OH MY GOD! 86 Rs/lit Petrol! Bus Fares to 15 Rupees till 1 stop! How the hell did they snatch a person’s cell phone, burn him alive! Kill them, shoot them, throw stones at them, blow it all up. Government sucks! New Government sucks, Oh the past Govt messed this this and this up! He’s bad, he’s worse, he’s stupid, what’s that, why is that………….

YEA YEA YEA!!!! SHUT UP!

It is valid to say that people of Karachi have lost and are continuously loosing their sanity over the depressing problems in their home town – and for this, it is not them to blame.

Keeping all the problems in mind and giving each, another viewpoint, I would say that apart from the prices of food, fuel and utilities etc, we have yet another problem. The problem we are having are the PEOPLE themselves. Everyone and everything has problems, but finding a solution to a problem requires something of a mind, heart and wisdom. Let this post not be taken against the people of Karachi, but I’m just not satisfied by the way people (we) are handling their (our) problems!

What is a problem? A problem is an outcome of acts in the past creating an unfavorable vision of the future or partially blocking it.

So, the question is NOT “who did wrong in the past”, the question is… WHO sees the FUTURE! Its people who see the future, if the people are not in a normal state of mind, heart and wisdom, they are unable to identify the future. If you are unable to identify the future, how would you be able to walk on a path that actually leads to a better future.

I always give this example, lets say “Mr. X” had an accident and X is lying on the road. X is thinking damn! What just happened, Oh It hurts so bad, it wasn’t my fault… The next second X get squished by a truck that says “Baloach Taiyyara”, and tomorrow headlines reads “noa-jawan halak, truck driver farar”.

If you don’t get up, don’t drag yourself to the corner, or don’t get yourself to the hospital you are actually ignoring the worst that is yet to come. You will have a life time to think about what ‘just’ happened, so its better to stand up and get yourself fixed so that you can have a life to live and deal with the memories later.

This is a typical scenario of our situation, we have just been hit by a car and we are lying on the road, thinking about what “just” happened. We are just crying about and thinking over and over about the things that are going wrong. My friends worry about the drunk truck driver with his Baloch Taiyara coming right at you.

To maintain mental stability is of the utmost importance in the time of crisis!

I’m not sure how many of you would actually consider the people as a problem to the problems of people. Lets hear it from you in comments and based on our comments I will be proposing actual solution of each and every problem.

    Cursing KESC is not a solution. Most of the people who curse KESC all the times are those who keep more than one A/C on most of the time and keep unwanted lights on. If you ask them why are they doing this they come back with reply,"Bill tu dey rahe hain na" as if ke ehsan karahe hain.

    if one starts realizing that one’s luxuries could become disaster for other then 80% of problems would get solved itself. Now one can’t blame altaf bai,Musharraf, current govt etc for our own ignorance. There’s no harm to admit that we screwed up ourselves rather blaming others.

    So please, use A/C as less as you can since your care could give smile to some one in your neighbor who has been ill and suffering more due to load shedding. Try once as it’s not as harmful as AIDS.

    Nadir bhai you can give as many solutions you want but who will listen. There is so little traffic on this forum. I use to check Karachi.metblogs.com regularly but now checking it weekly also works, no new post and sometimes no news at all.

    I totally agree with this statement, no one is to blame for what is happening to us, and only we can ourselves put up some courage to face things up and find a better solution.

    Why not save something now, why not shut our air-conditioners a bit, and just use remaining power to focus on developing something good and useful in future.

    How to solve the increasing crime rate in the city.Does any one notice , how badly it effects every ones life.U r in constant threat of being killed or robbed.U cannot wear an expensive watch , use a good mobile phone fearing it might be snatched.U cannot go to police station to register your complian as it would only make things worst.U cannot argue with anyone as he might be carrying a gun.The main concern today is sense of security.For me all other problems are reletively low.
    Just see the fate of CHAMPIONS TROPHY , other nations are not willing to come and the revenue we can make from this event could well be gone.Similarly , we do not have any tourism, inspite of having the worlds best hill stations and beaches.Look at Dubai, they get so much tourism despite being a desert city.
    CAN ANYONE COME UP WITH A SOLUTION TO CURB THE CRIME RATE OR THE TIME HAS COME WHERE EACH ONE OF US HAS TO CARRY A GUN TO PROTECT OURSELF.
