Loot Sale: Business Closed, Last Chance

Yesterday, while walking down the usual zig zag of streets from bus stop to my flat, I was thinking randomly about inflation, cost of living, job security, stock markets, dollar price,  Zardari, Lawyers Movement, Bajour, Baluchistan etc. etc.  Then suddenly I came across this banner….

Last Chance, Last Price, Below Purchase Price, Shop has been sold, Business Gone Broke

Banner in Urdu Reads: Last Chance, Last Price, Below Purchase Price, Shop has been sold, Business Gone Broke

This banner per see looks like just another business trick. But If you look closely and try to read between the lines. This banner becomes a satire, a commentary at current state of affairs in this country. It describes in very few words the political, economical and moral dilemma being faced by us.

I invite you to elaborate through your comments on each/any expression(s) on the banner you can relate to…

    ‘Karobar Thap!’ sadly and unfortunately applies to the state of affairs of this country today. Needless to say that all other statements are relevant too! *sighs*

    Besides, a very warm welcome for R.MAK on joining the LMB family… Jeetay raho!!

    Aptly describes the poor-state of affairs in Pakistan.
