5 typical questions you will be asked if you live in Pakistan..

Posted on Updated on

It was on the 2nd of July 2005 when we finally flew to Karachi to now continue our living here.In the beginning every thing seemed weird..The constant question that continued pricking my immature mind was how am I going to settle in such a place where hardly any rooms supported air conditioned..where every morning you are awaken by loud harsh voices of the vegetable sellers but the clock alarms..

awed,by the lifestyles of the karachiites.It was difficult to digest the fact that this was the very place where some or the other way we had to get adjusted..As the time passed we found ourselves being comfortably embedded in this lifestyle.now I have come to love the merits and demerits of this place.

Surprisingly, In my recent trip to Dubai i noticed how people bombard us with absurd question which literally amused me.To them living on Mars feels easier than living in Pakistan.

1- How do you even afford to live in a danger zone like Karachi..??

excuse me..if you are a Pakistani I have the right to dart the same question upon you.Where does the ‘Danger Zone’ tags flow away when you make a trip here on your vacations .. does your arrival makes it a less dangerous one.

2-How do you even dare to step out in a city where abduction and kidnapping are so common..?

oh,common ..bad times never send you an invitee before their arrival.These mishaps are now common all across the globe.If you want to know how we treat them, like any normal girl living anywhere in the world we make sure to escort some adult with us.

3-How do you people go to your universities/schools..?

Don’t worry we don’t use rockets for our transport.Like you people even we have drivers that escort us to and from the school.And our academic institutions are located in the suburbs of Karachi.And we hardly come to know what goes around as long as we are within the premises and mostly try to avoid discussing such issues and enjoy..

4-Do you people even go out.?

Are you serious..we ain’t aliens.And no single creature alive can live without socializing.I bet no people can compete the ones residing in  Karachi when it comes to hanging out and making most out of it.The city of lights stands a unique charm.We roam about with our families freely.No single person I think misses even the slightest chance to let their weekend go away.

5-How do you even tolerate standing on those dirty pan-spat foot paths ..?
To add to your knowledge they doesn’t always remain wet.And there stands no point in raising such questions.When we ourselves are responsible for such untidiness ..why to raise fingers over the illiterate when the literate ones us assume that whole of the Karachi is a dustbin..and are seen throwing wrappers or garbage wherever we feel like..

My pain scale shoots to ten when Pakistani’s living abroad submerged in the facilities they are being provided there compares their lifestyles to those living in here.If we are not catered with the same luxuries as they are this doesn’t in any aspect make our lives less important than theirs.Ironically, for them Pakistan is only an issue to be debated upon when it comes to politics.Criticising it turns out to be the best time pass ever.

i to a greater extent agree that these bulks of garbage have completely distorted Karachi’s image.But nothing’s going to change unless we change ourselves,our perception,and make our home town as beautiful as before.But if we think it’s not our job,then we are the real culprits responsible for this perpetual stench.

the last goal..

Posted on Updated on

Any one could see clearly within our eye lens the climax they followed from ball to ball of an amusing football match…the moment the football throbbed  near the net the adrenaline played its part.our heart pounded so hard as it might leap out from the rib cage and its emotions were clearly heard by the arsenal fans.my entire football team supporters’ presence jammed the room and a slight move from any of us could have disrupted the silence that prevailed all over.

the referee stood glued to the ground..with the whistle tightly held amid the lips.the clock played its part..time ran fast as it never had before..the goose bumps were badly felt.

nothing more good could have felt than the anticipation of the goal we longed for..the very goal that would mark our entries in the final match.

the prayers were heard …the highly muscular short from one of the team mates made and the ball dart right through the nets. the champions roared..
