Here Does The Electricity Go !

It was just this morning that i saw a TV channel running a footage showing the lights of Karachi Stadium all turned on in broad day light. much to my surprise they were still on around 6 PM having no extra benefit against the bright sunshine but indeed adding much to the power shortage the city and the whole country is suffering from.

    I have heard that the National Stadium don’t use KESC for power supply
    It has his own power generation
    But still flood lights lit in morning is not ok

    Hi Jamash,

    Have you considered the possibility that there might be maintenance work going on on the lights.

    First of all. thank god. one doesn’t need an account to post the comment on metroblogging anymore !
    second. its exaggeration. as i know . these lights take time to be fully functional, thats why they are switched on lil earlier . and in a continuing match u cant wait for dark to come and lights being switched on then the continuation of a match .

    Instead of just Saturday off we should have an all week off,then we could easily join the list of countries exporting electricity..

    jamash, thats usual, NS have their own generators and they don’t borrow from kesc.

    Also during match lights are lit up little early…

    Look, Pakistan will always be like this pretty much. I was born and raised in the west and just visited my homeland for the first time in Dec 09. I really loved Karachi, the hustle and bustle, the chaos. It was fun. I will go back soon – in fact I bought a house there.

    Despite all the chaos, I found a people who don’t give a shit, who are busy eating out, playing cricket, planning weddings, etc…

    Pakistanis stop complaining all the time – it is never going to be like Switzerland or Canada – and you don’t want it too, that would be boring and it would loose all its charm.

    Just be glad you have such a nice warm country to enjoy, this 24hr media stuff is not good for Pakistan, turn of the Tvs, stop complaining, get out eat and enjoy your country – life is too short.

    ” ——then we could easily join the list of countries exporting electricity.”

    Please add to it: and thus also countries having no corruption.

    @ Jahangir Qadar

    Sir,I did consider the possibility. Yes, it is quite possible if the maintenance staff had decided to commit suicicde by electrecuting themselves.
    Take care.

    بلب بجھنا تو بہانا ہے
    یہ لوڈشیڈنگ عوام کے دماغ کی بتی گل کرنے کے لیے ہوتی ہے
