‘Shed Thy Load’ comes to town!

Theater-goers need not to get enthralled. Not another stage performance from Sharabeel’s house or Butt’s team.

IESCO takes the lead this time. Islamabad’s stay-lit-up attitude is brought down by her highness (IESCO is SHE). For past few days, unscheduled (run-time approach is taken) Power Outage is the talk of town.

Let's Play :-D

The note says something else on IESCO’s website (well who really updates such info on websites in Pakistan?); reality tells a different tale. We should look forward to 4-8 hours of power outage in a 24-hr day.

By the way: It rained a lot in Summers, NO?

    I pray (sarcastically) slums and contaminated water be the next in line.

    Let the capital feel and enjoy what the rest of 90% is.

    “By the way: It rained a lot in Summers, NO?”

    Yes, it rained but the country is loosing water storage capacity due to silting problem at tarbela. “With silt inflow, the dam’s capacity has been reduced to 7.2maf — a loss of 2.3maf — during the last 26 years.” and “Tarbela Dam is losing 100,000 cusecs storage capacity every year”.
