Falling In Love with the Blue Tower

Tough i am in love with the Green (Trust) Tower but i these days i am feeling a shift of feelings to a different side. The new gleaming Blue (Islamabad Stock Exchange) Tower keeps looking at me with those shiny eyes (glass) and asks me to stay when i am rushing ahead passing by it. It does make my head turn and make my heart flutter. I wonder where would my affections lie in due course of time. There is a tough competition between the “Green” and the “Blue”. :-)

PS: Maybe i will change the course of the “affection” and “adopt” them both. Yuppiee!

    lolzz, nice thoughts, hey what is this black thing on the building ? is it some kind of construction support thing or ?

    That black thing is the screen on which different stock prices will be displayed once the building is functional as the stock exchange. I got confused myself when i first saw that. But then somebody told me and i was enlightened. :-)

    some speedy work there in glass fittings :)

    Looks ‘cool’ ;)

    BTW, logically speaking .. having glasses on face of the building was not a good decision :s

    Why would you say that?

  5. Monazza Talha (montaleast13) on May 9th, 2009 @ 2:20 am

    Yes does look speedy to me too. Hope they don’t make any blunder while doing that. :-D

    I personally love glass buildings as they look elegant. But sometimes i feel there shouldn’t be any such buildings around with lots of glass. The reason being the fact that whenever there is a "rally", one of the first things that gets attacked are the glass buildings. People throw stones/bricks, leaving the glass either to be completely shattered or clad with big holes. If you get a chance, do pass through Murree Road and you’ll see what i mean. :-)

    But i would also like to know why Asma said it. So I’m waiting for a reply.

    What would really be funny is that the glass be high-strength and tempered. Then when the protesters throw stones, and even bang the glass with sticks from the outside, nothing would happen! Omg, it would be hilarious, esp on video ;)!

    ok guys i’d like us to wake up now, there r about a Million internally displaced refugees now in our homeland – I simply cannot apprehend the thought of discussing a building

    I need some god fearing pakistani here to please do a blog on the issue urgently and inform people what can be done to help.

    This is also an appeal from the American based Pakistanis – The media is showing our sisters, daughters and children sleeping under open sky without any food n shelter – we r trying to help but we dont know where and how, please if anyone is reading this, inform as soon as possible…

    @ dushanbe,

    thanks for wakeup call, but my friend they are not going to wakeup with our call, (no offence), they are just waiting for an deep call from inside the earth, we call it, "earthquake".

    I am sorry if I hurt some one feelings here, but its so strange that we are not moving while thousands of children, sisiters, mothers and oldies are just sleeping on roads and in parks.

    This breaks my heart from inside, I wish I can give or share,

    My room,
    My car,

    huh !!!!!!

    They even not bother to post an article or updates in Isb Metblogs….

    Politics has destroyed our country, our political institutions have meddled in our education, religion, military, pretty much everything else too. The Pakistani people do not need politics to deviate them from suicidal thoughts provoked by the shambled economy, they need education, our weakest institution on the verge of collapse by the oh-so-mighty influence our political agenda’s.

    *sigh* I went off topic again, someone sentence me to blogger hell… :(

    @furqanatique & Monazza: Thoughts of ETC came to my mind … after the marriott blast. A few people working there at that time couldnt succumb to the injuries caused by broken glasses. The blast caused the glass on face of building to go like mean bullets =|

    @dushanbe: agree to the message … Many many refugees coming in from Bajaur and Adjacent areas are currently residing in the Jalozai camp … its harboring 50K+ people with govt. an dmedia not much aid to the problem…. If you’d like I can get you across with a person ho is directly doing some efforts to provide milk for infants … and few basics with the help of corporate sector and university students … awaiting ur reply.

    @wk: actually emotional rants wont help … I hope everyone is doing something for pakistan whats in his/her power. You can’t sweep off all the hunger single handedly but you can feed a mouth. Have your pick. A blog post won’t make any change … IMHO … when the larger media is showing you the ground realities and as a pakistani you know quite much of it already. Actions !

    @furqan: we all love our off-topic rants ;)

    Enjoy your moments too :)

    Aaaahhh… I love big buildings. Islamabad needs hundreds of these right now. Let’s cut down some trees and build buildings in those green belts, and for every tree that is cut during the construction process, two more shall be planted! Howzzat?
