The condition of the country is getting to a point where everything is seen either with complete hope or with that hopeless last look before hell breaks lose. Everything in this country is now viewed at an extreme angle. Either it would save the country or simply be the end of it!
The recent examples of these would be the rains in the country. It was seen as the wrath of God from which no Mustafa Kamal with his many flyovers and underpasses would be able to save this God forsaken country which was to be banished to pre-technology eras… but then God must have had mercy on his tech-can’t-live-without-it creatures. The lights at the end of the tunnel was restored as Karachi Electric Supply Company, minutes before being burned down by the angry protesters, worked fruitlessly to give the city lights for a few hours before taking it back.
Sarcasm aside, the night of the rains and the ones that followed it were taken as the last straw. What people witnessed during that week was enough to convince them that now its time to run away.
My parents who have always been great patriots…don’t be fooled by the cursing to the people and the country which follows every night religiously when they get back home after being made miserable on the roads by every other person who literary thinks that it is his birth right to break the law and go wrong way and god forbid to drive in his own lane…
