Ignorance is bliss?

As I reached my workplace my cell phone signalled a new sms. Attending it was the least of all my concerns though as I was greeted by some office confusion and gnashed my teeth at a few people’s impudence. I should have saved teeth gnashing for later, as turned out. There were two sms’es. One from my brother and sister each while another brother had miscalled a good three times. I don’t pick up the phone while traveling. Turns out there was a bomb blast near the PIDC, right in front of KFC at about half past eight this morning. As I am the last to leave home for work, my siblings were concerned; at times I do take that route. It reminded me of another time when the New Zealand team was in Karachi for a cricket series and a bomb blast in Sheraton, where the national and guest teams were staying, blasted game plans in the city. I was enroute to work and only on reaching office did I learn the cause for all that security and chaos at the PIDC/Sheraton area. This KFC was the same where a friend and I used to walk to for lunches. I should have saved my teeth gnashing as a reaction to this blast. It makes me mad. It would make anyone mad. I would like to kill the perpetrators of this heinous act, if those bastards haven’t already got themselves killed in their myopic quest for Heaven. How could Allah let such fools enter Heaven? I surely don’t look forward to such company after death. Abdul Halim Sharar wrote Arsh e Bareen and I wonder if it was not about our times?

I know the song seems quite unappropiate to the post, but passing by what is left of that KFC too reminded me of the friend with whom I used to snuck off from work for lunch. I don't like fries(she did) and she didn't like soft drinks(I did)...so together we got a double of helping of the items we liked.

It is sad and it is dead scary! I dont know - just as we begin to think things are getting to normal these incidents remind us of the harsh reality of life in this city.

I think everything is too easily attributed to those mullas, and some people might just be taking advantage of the situation...but that is not a discussion I want to go into...

I had called in to check on you guys...when you didn't answer. You and your beloved fat lady here both should be denied mobile phones...not answering a phone counts amongst sins.

Thank God you are all alright.
