Aerial Firing Hazards
Aerial firing has become a routine practice on occasions like weddings, New Year's night, Independence Day, chand raat etc; it has become such an integral part without which any celebration is considered incomplete. This illegal practice has become too frequent and often results in casualties, but the police has failed to control the situation; all they do is register FIRs and consider their job done. The authorities concerned should immediately look into this serious issue and come up with a zero tolerance policy for offenders.
Road accidents are on the rise these days and the major factor that contributes is rash and reckless driving. For instance, bus drivers race to beat one another, breaking signals along the way. Furthermore, as most of our roads are uneven and damaged, they further contribute in causing horrible accidents. The situation can be improved if the traffic police perform their duty with honesty and keep a watchful eye. Moreover, licenses of those drivers should be cancelled who are found driving recklessly. The public can also help by asking the bus drivers not to exceed the speed limit. If everyone cooperates then certainly the horrible road accidents can be prevented.
Political Talk Shows
Most of our political talk shows nowadays look like rooster fights rather than civilised and logical debates. Nobody listens to anybody and some anchorpersons even join the verbal war to the utter dismay of the viewers. Considering the alarming challenges facing the country, we need a debate that portrays the real and clear picture of the issues however, that is certainly not the case. What I have noted in these verbal firefights is that lessons have not been learnt from history. Moreover, it seems as if most of us are probably not aware that the world is watching our debating skills.
Sport Bikes On Motorway
Recently while traveling from Islamabad to Lahore via Motorway M2, I was shocked to see a group of young boys on sport bikes. They were racing on the motorway while putting their lives and other commuters in danger at the same time. I wonder why they were even allowed to enter the motorway, as only buses, cars and other heavy vehicles are allowed to use the said route. They have absolutely no right to put lives of other travelers in jeopardy. I request the concerned authorities to look into this matter immediately.
MAG - Loved By All
Need Of Streetlights In KU
Kudos to all who work so hard to get us MAG every week. We start the weekend by reading the magazine, without which the holiday is considered incomplete. I must have my morning cup of tea while I leaf through the new crisp pages of MAG. Other than my total dedication to this wonderful magazine I would also like to make a suggestion. You can dedicate a page exclusively to kids, as it would encourage them to look forward to some reading every week. Your magazine will then be a complete family magazine, catering from the young to the old.
Through this letter I would like to draw the attention of the authorities concerned to the need of more streetlights in Karachi University. As students of the evening batch commute in the evening to attend their classes, the absence of lights in the corridors poses difficulty for them. Moreover, at some places where streetlights are installed, they are usually switched off. In the evening, the university appears unsafe especially when the darkness falls. The KU administration should make arrangements for proper lighting in order to facilitate the students.
