There was no water in our apartment for like 3 days. All the saved one started finishing by Sunday noon. People called tankers to full their tanks so they can carry on with their lives. Whole Sunday was chaotic. We were also waiting for our turn, but it came to us last night at 12:30 . Thanks Heaven today problem has been solved.
Water is there and we have saved it.
This water and electric shortage is no big deal for us __Karachities. We are quite used to it. People mostly save, get tankers, or move to their relatives for a day when situation gets worse. I know this is not a solution, but that's a way we roll.
This whole episode of water shortage taught me the importance lesson of saving. My mom and dad both are quite those type of people who are firm believer of saving almost everything for tomorrow. My dad always says " Peopel who don't save live hand to mouth." He is right.I saw that today. It was just water shortage, just image when people have final crisis and they have nothing saved.
Every alternate day my parents save water in tanks, and three big drums in the morning. They have their turns, and on weekends me and my bro do that.
We also have no closed relatives left in here to whom we can go in such days. We survived these three days just because of saving.
