Far sightedness

http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/images/2007/06/07062007-thumb.jpgAs Mansoor mentioned, the air is pretty clean these days. Smoke and dust free. It’s still pretty damn hot out there, but the visiblity is excellent. I was able to see as far as my eyes allowed from my office building. Usually the smoke and dust in the air limits the visibility to a significant extent. I don’t know how did it happen (did God just install an air filter above Karachi?) and how long it will last, let’s just cherish it while it does. Get on top of your nearby multistory building and take a look outside. It’s worth the sight.

    lol so for Karachiites as far as you can look through air is far-sightedness :-)

    Its these mountains that block our way, Isloiites can then look till ur ocean :P

    Incase anyone is interested, heres how the sunset was in Karachi. Usually the sky is never this dramatic.


    PS: I hope this isn’t considered spamming… If it is, can someone please remove it?

    Whoa!, Great pic Echos. Where did you shoot that? (looks like it was taken from a height?).


    The reason the skies are so clear and its so hot is,

    God is angry on Karachites for the 12th May massacares & all the ‘beghairtis’ that are have been going on.

    …..You may start your flame…..NOW!.

    :P, seriously though. Its always real hot in June, but come on!. Where is our rain? :{.

    Add the heat to the way the power has been managed this week……..AHHH!!!.

    I wonder whats the figure on the ppl who have fell to heat-strokes &/or dehydration.

    obviously those newly inducted CNG busses/rickshaws can’t have a effect on atmosphere so rapidly…

    Truly sorry for being off topic but just wanted to find out if Musharaff is scheduled to address the nation today on PTV and if so, then what time.

    There must be some scientific explanation for this. Any one care to explain?

  11. Salman A. (unregistered) on June 7th, 2007 @ 8:52 pm

    What’s going on with KMB authors? One says “Karachi Tops Air Pollution Data”

    and the other claims that the air is pretty clean and smoke and dust free!!

    Please try to make sense in your posts instead of writing just for the heck of it.

    Thank you.

    Muhammad idiot,
    You are back with a different name. S is for what?
    Your use of ‘kingdom’ reminds of Christian Evangilists!

    Eat fiber, you are full of gas and that leads to your stupid idiotic dreams. Thanks for not posting one this time. And, please write in Urdu or another paksitani language from now on. We can not understand your garbage in English.

    Asma, you are looking the wrong way, man! :P Yes, the air is very clean!

  17. Petarian_88 (unregistered) on June 8th, 2007 @ 1:18 am


    i guess it has something to do with the Cyclone Gonu currently hitting Oman/Iran…it was in the arabian gulf for the last many days.

    iam pretty sure your cleaner air in khi these days has something to do with it:))

  18. pkhan (unregistered) on June 8th, 2007 @ 1:53 am

    Its all because of our Dear President and MQM that the Air is cleean and a misty smell in the AIR.Jiyae Pakistan

  19. BitterTruth (unregistered) on June 8th, 2007 @ 2:13 am

    well something is more due to them,

    bbc covers what is it

  20. d0ct0r (unregistered) on June 8th, 2007 @ 4:15 am

    thats shocking.. now these terrorist from MQM seem to have kidnapped that lawyer who filed case against
    MQM’s terrorists and govt for 12th May’s killing…

    maybe in coming days either he’ll be recovered dead or beaten and forced to withdraw cases.. these terrorist would never mend their ways…

    i would just like to comment on an unrealted topic, not discussed here on KMB i.e the visit of Imam e kaba.

    as the visit progressed it looked like the govt got the Imam e kaba on rent from the saudi govt to shore up it’s image!!:()) esp after the Imam started making pro govt comments!

    Dun you guys get it?!?!? The back breaking load shedding is shutting down all the industrial sector. Thas why the skies are so clear. As no industrial activity, so no smoke, and no pollution…
