(Pleasant) Journey to Islamabad

Some quotes from my heart uttered various of my journeys to Islamabad from Rawalpindi (especially today’s):

  • Setting foot into the territory of the capital city, Islamabad, is getting more and more tiresome, difficult, annoying, hectic, frustrating, exasperating and much more, with each bomb blast (including attempts) that is caused in the country or the city itself.
  • Reaching Islamabad with ease is inversely proportional to the number of blasts taking place in the city.
  • To come to the city of serenity, Islamabad, painlessly is now not more than a sweet & serene dream.
  • Ways to reach Islamabad easily and quickly and are only fragments of imagination.
  • Anyone who boasts of getting inside Islamabad from somewhere out of the city can only be deemed a “Sheikhi Khora”.

Note: I know time of travel is a significant variable but I had to take out my frustration somehow and somewhere. ;-)

    I remember when Lal masjid operation wa staking place … everyone from rwp would make excuses and will take off that they cant reach the office.

    And we poor islooites had every way open in front of our cars :(

    @asma: haha ;)

    @montaleast13: why don’t you install one of those LCDs in your car and watch tv on the way?

    @montaleast13: What is a montaleast?

    @sufiblade: I believe the first three letters of her handle ‘montalest’ are those of her real first name, the second three ‘tal’ are the first three of her second name, and the ‘east’ suggests that she is a pure Daughter of the East… correct me if I am wrong Mona :)

    As for the topic under discussion, I do feel sorry for all the people who have to commute from Rawalpindi everyday for work. As far as my knowledge tells me, there aren’t many routes leading to Islamabad from Rawalpindi, and it is taking more time to reach the capital now than before. I think there should be more flyovers, underpasses, better public transport facilities like buses, trams, and ever trains. But I guess that’s all wishful thinking. Maybe my grandchildrens grandchildren who see something like that. Till then I might as well keep myself in a cryo chamber so that they can resurrect me and tell me ‘Look dada jaan look! Islamabad has changed so much!’. Going a bit offtrack here.

    I am baffled at your intelligence! You deciphered the code and that too single handedly! Cool! And yes you are absolutely right. That is what "montaleast" stands for. As for the 13 part, it is my date of birth (not to mention this number gives a nice touch to my ‘net-nick’).

    Yup crazymonekey is right. :-) And i could get the LCD installed but then who would steer the car out of the jam in case i am the driver. :-D hehe Not a bad idea though. Let me think some more on it.

    Not only during the Lal Masjid operation but some other events as well, the roads "to" Islamabad did used to get blocked. Not always but many a times. ;-) hehe

    Good to see there are people who can become "meray gham mai shareek". :-) I hope all this road nonsense ends some time soon.
