REALITY CHECK

October 21, 2020

               I just returned from a very short trip to Dubai. 

Besides being subjected to three PCR Nasal swabs (including 1 throat) in four days (our nostrils now stand permanently ‘flared’ 😊), I thought I would dabble in some self-made poetry …

               We visit Dubai –

                                             Built on sand

                                                            Sand as far as the eye can see

                                                                           … and not a spec of sand on the roads!

               We live in Karachi –

A concrete jungle

                                                   … with sand (dirt, debris, you name it …) everywhere!

(Sad but true … sigh!)

(End note:

It is criticism … it is feedback … censure me if you must … but this is the reality we live in! As citizens, we need to own our City … which we don’t, sadly!  https://dinshawavari.com/2019/08/30/ohthe-clean-clean-not-streets-of-karachi/)
