THERE was a time, not too long ago, when order prevailed where passengers arriving in Karachi would wait and have their cars driven up to them. Now they come to cars standing three abreast, some crookedly parked thereby taking more space. When there was order, there were some uniformed personnel ensuring that the vehicles were not brazenly parked under ‘no parking’ signs.

All this is no more and I wonder why. Why must we embrace chaos when once discipline prevailed? Can somebody bring sanity back to Karachi airport?

Unity, Fith, and discipline have now been supplanted by corruption, religious hypocrisy and contrived chaos!

Is there any thing, any department, any organization, any section or any branch of any system at a working place that got better during the last 65 years? Ever thing is rapidly getting disorganised and is in total shambles. :(

UNITY, FAITH & DISCIPLINE. All are gone and corruption has taken their place.

Actually carelessness is taking its way and this is because there is no one who can direct the people towards the right path. So if any one violate rule, he knows that can he is free to do so may be because of power or affluence.
