The sun in your face?

How do you avoid it?

For a majority of people in the city, who live in gulshan side of the city, and work in I.I Chundrigar/Clifton/S, this is not a problem, but for the other half, those who live on the clifton side and work on S.F or gulshan side of the city, its a very dangerous proposition going back home around sunset. SF faces due west, which means, whenever the sun sets, its right in your face if you are unlucky enough to be driving towards metropole at the time.

How do you avoid the glare of the sun and see where you are going at the same time? Till now, my personal favourite has been to use the sun visor, but at times, even that doesn’t work, and like today, i end up bumping the motorbike in front of me.

    Try to use polaroid sun glasses. They help to some extent.

    The KMB author’s IQ is going down by the minute. We see same intellectual decline as the societies that lack freedom…may I suggest Pakistan as an example? Pretty soon everyone here will loose respect for everyone of the authors, if they haven’t already,…and then authors will have nothing but a bunch of petty comments everyday they’ll have to run after like dogs to delete…

    Awab Alwi is just one such example…and now Mansoor has joined him…

    A very relevant topic of our daily lives. Good one, Mansoor!

    My only suggestion is to slow down as much as you can without much disrupting the traffic flow behind you.

    Hmmm.. Sun glasses of course!

    Mansoor, the damn bikers keep damaging our properties more than once! It’s okay if you bump into one and that too at least a 100 times!

    Some Wise Man even suggested this idea ages back you should go to work before the sunrise and come back after the sunset, leave the first part and start focusing on the 2nd one thus would help the poor bikers since you won’t be giving the excuse ohh sorry i coudnt see you because of the Sunlight :)
