Just before and after the Cloudburst

It’s been beautiful weather all morning in Karachi. I got a chance to snap a few photographs immediately before and during the sudden cloudburst that took place at about 330pm today. Here are the sequential shots.

    I was on the outskirts, The rain came to me like the hoarders do to the phaticher.

    Meaning, It suddenly came out of no where, drenched me completly and moved forward to better opurtunities.

    It was refreshing to hear that door bell, proof dat lite was still there (still is )

    The drains were working awsome while I drove back….although had one almost leathal (van) and second not so leathal (11C) near miss wid my phatphati….trafic has become a mess since everyother phaticher owns a car who don’t know how to drive in rain…

    @fasee saab….sir this reminds me of the anecdote…the teachers of a school prepared the kids for inspection team…..in advance….and when they arrived and asked questions…the kids readily answered all questions except one…”who created everybody..?”…hum sub ko kis paida kiya hai..? nobody answered…the inspection team grew impatient…and asked a boy…he replied sir the one who is created by Allah is absent today…jis ko allah ney paida kiya hai woh aaj nahein aaya….(full stop)

    so you mean to say kay ouper khan balouch chainey sey ice thord ta hai toh oley perdh tey hain..hain na….mujhey pheley hee suspicion tha…abhi confirm ho giya….lol

    “Peet me dard ker diya”

    Sir its first time dat I have been accused from male specie of, giving them abdominal pain. Sinf-e-nazuk ka tu ye purana iljam hai…;)

    “Hiss-e-mazah”

    When governed by a syndicate full of clowns, hiss-e-mazah tu khud ajati hai.

    One of my countless ustaad-e-gair utaramz told me

    Halat-e-bebasi me ik nazuk mukaam wo bi ata hai ke insaan hansnaay ke ilawa kuch nai kerpata…result…..half of this nation is laughing and pulling there hair all the time…..rest are banging there heads on the wall
