… and we have no lights

Street lights during the daytimeIf there is one thing that makes your blood boil is something like this – driving down Khayaban-e-Ittehad in the middle of a sweltering afternoon, and seeing the street lights switched on!

The red circles are there just to show you the streetlights on that entire length of the main road, were on. The time I snapped this photograph was about 5pm, which means a good 2 hours before sundown. I had passed by the area about 3 hours earlier and found the same situation. (more…)

Profit – Not Production, keeps us in Darkness

Power generation is definitly required for the lights to come back in KHI, there is no argument on it but that is not the only reason why we were without electricity at times in this mosam-e-sarma.

The circus goes on and on. . .

Last night when i was in gulshan sitting late night with friends we were discussing how the whole city seems a frustrated psycho mob. And yes politics had to be the center topic. Going for a change, i was searching for some serious jokes in newspapers this morning and here i found one (“The minister assured the governor that the water and power secretary would be in Karachi on Monday and take steps to improve the situation“). The minister hoping something even a prophet wouldnt commit. Because Prophets dont commit on abnormalities. Moving on, here is one MASTER JOKE i found from past. This post is just to share some such serious jokes about KHI in political context since i find there is hardly anything worth smile in this city these days. And the price hike in Ramazan was just the last nail in coffin we were waiting for.

In coming days (weeks,months) i am very hopeful that the same statement will be repeated by Mr. Zardari (who is by the way much worried about Kashmir than Karachi these days) whenever he visits Karachi. The circus goes on and on . .
