My daily commute to the office is a crisp 60 minutes drive, one way! The way back is another 60 minutes plus minus a few minutes depending on how lucky or unlucky I am on that particular day. During these 60 minutes a lot of interesting things happen, for instance there’s this Policeman who often gets a free ride and talks incessantly about the good old times, there’s a small girl and her toddler brother who sometimes I drop off at their school gate, I listen to the FM, I see people in a hurry, I have been able to memorize the exact location of three distinct big dips in the middle of the road which could on a bad day burst a car’s tyre or even throw an unlucky biker off balance, I see the 200 foot Pakistani flag near H-10 sector in Islamabad fluttering (mostly), I listen to FM 89, 106.2 and so many other radio channels, and I try to cut off nobody, repeated nobody. But most important of all I hunt for road poetry and bumper stickers for my blog. On finding one, I get my cellphone camera ready and try to close in on the target and with one hand snap the pic. Something, of which I am proud and have achieved quite a mastery in. So a few days back saw this bumper sticker, which I believe is custom and says, “Zindagi or dost kabhi wafa nahi kartay.” If translated in to English using my limited vocabulary it means, “Life and friends are never faithful.”
I agree about life but about friends well I guess this bloke never had a good one, or may be he got ditched many times. What do you guys think? Drop me a line I would love to listen to you. Cheers!
