August 14th marks 60 years since Pakistan gained independence. The
day is supposed to be one of joy and celebration, yet after 60 years,
a large part of the Capital, supposedly the most developed place in the
country, is still under darkness. Power lines were effected by last
night's storm and even in the better areas, the supply was only restored
in the evening.
My house, just out of the jurisdiction of the Capital Development
Authority, has been without power for almost 24 hours now. With another
storm coming and no sign of any restoration of power, things will be
quite unbearable on Independence Day and who knows how much
longer this will last.
