Himat hai tou paas kar, warna bardasht kar!

We always complain and vain about Karachi’s transportation system and here I am doing that again. I was traveling in a public bus. We know their conditions but some are so bad (like the one in which I was commuting) that you never know if flooring would collapse and your feet might touch the ground. Then one rickshaw literally skipped the chance of accident with the bus and it’s side mirror only got affected or else it would have rock n’ roll-ed on the ground. Btw I love Rickshaws but I equally value safety. Motorbikes walon ke liye tou my lips are sealed.

Then most of us Karachites don’t have any civic sense and many of us don’t even know how to drive, forget the etiquette. Now during such incidents, I sometimes wonder why is it that we get silent after bomb blasts in Karachi. Why are there no reservations at channels to show dead bodies? May be we don’t value human life or maybe the apathy in us has deepen its roots.

    Safety First

    Two safety measures which i never forget (m not talkin bout below 50km/hr speed or seatbelts)

    Stay away from ne thing which is completely covered by ne fabric(read shuttle cocks) or has facial hair which has never seen a blade

    burqa and darhi dou alag alag imtehan hain on khi roads, so stay away and b safe!

    p.s. dont mean no insult, just sharing simple observations
