Rains in Karachi

Rains in Karachi bring joy and a level of happiness that is not readily available to majority of us on daily basis. Rains, if they are heavy, bring shutters down, people on the roads; street urchins go dancing on the beach. And most of us go down – or above – to wash ourselves.

Our elders tell us that first rains must be avoided at all costs. But what if the first major rains comes after a gap of say 11 months? Can the rain-starved Karachi wallas avoid rains at all, first or last? NO.

And rains – hopefully & Inshallah – will bring more business to me!

    Jail qoum, can’t even handle a 30 minute rain….what if it rained like london…we cud have make us extinct by then.

    PS: use waterproof shoes, pipes on cars, and extra rubber shoes in case it rains…and a extra tshirt and jeans in the boot of car, a jumper cable, a torch, a tool kit, a stong enough and long enough cord, and some ready food or biscuits just incase u get stranded somewere in next rain.

    Jail qoum don’t even know how to be prepared
