Come ahead! And do something
We all are aware about the recent bomb blast in Karachi at MA Jinnah road and then we witnessed the worst … 9/11 for Karachi… burning markets … yes! Complete markets. These were not small shops… the wholesale markets responsible for different kind of supplies for whole Pakistan, from medicine to decoration items. The smallest shop in this market must containing items worth of millions rupees.
I myself, being victim of such incident, can understand the feelings of these poor people. The most of the shops in those markets are owned by Memon and Bohri communities. Both communities are famous to run business on low profit but turnovers. And one can get more turnovers by having good stock and so investment in business. The both communities also having the ideology to retain low cash in hand instead stock items. I am telling you all this because to give an idea about the damage caused by such incidents.
Believe me; fire didn’t leave anything behind for them… as I received this from a friend:
Jala daali zaalimo ne meri dukan,
is se to acha tha jala dete mujh samait mera makaan.
Ab kahan se kama k khilaounga apne gharane ko,
Jb ghar main hi nahi ho ga raashan-o-samaan.
Mera qasoor kya tha ae zalim jalane wale,
Na main hamla awar tha na wo mera mehman.
Meri zindagi bhar ki kamaai aik pal main jal gai,
Aur tum kehte ho sabar kr ,na ho halkaan?
Can we do anything for them? We, thousands of people, can do anything for them? I need 1000 people who can contribute just Rs.500/- are you one of them?
Come ahead! And do something….
