bite this, if you still got the teeth..

As of today, 57.70 Rs/litre is the latest price of petrol, FYI. BBCurdu reports the first blood (if it’s really the first!). In one year, we’ve seen the petrol prices rising from 43.96 to 57.70, a rise of 31.25%! Yes, in one year! And we talk about country progressing; on the expense of squeezing blood out of our veins.

I know mentioned petrol pump and it’s not the best place I tell you, plus Shell in my opinion sucks for the quality. But what the hell was guard thinking? A mere 5 rupee coin has worth more than a youngster’s life? Perhaps, yes. I hear some bastards say that progress requires sacrifices. Revolution begins with bloodshed? My foot! Why my blood and why not mushi’s?

    Guys we pakistanis are not alone in this. World over the prices are rising. In the US everybody is pleading for Mr.Bush to take some action in regulating this. The entire middle class is sick of paying ever rising prices for filling up their tanks. It hurts even more for those who have SUVs.

    this is indeed really unfortunate. It’s hard to comment on this though. i hope that i am not alone when i say that we need to develop more tolernace in ourselves to atleast make an effort to listen to the other person’s viewpoint and as a last resort agree to disagree. although this particular space might not be appropriate, i would like to point out that the diaspora here in the u.s. displays a remarkable sense of outward control which for the most part goes to the dogs as soon as we step off the plane and come back home. although there is no way to rectify what happended, all one can hope for is greater tolerance in our society which alone might go a long way in solving a lot of our existing problems.

    petrol prices are high all over the world except in middle east.There is nothing wrong with it, it is not some kind of government move to pressure people, the fuel prices is what is there in the market all around. Do not forget that, fuel prices are more higher in other south asian countries then Pakistan. Indonesia can be an exception due to low quality of fuel used.
    Take a look around before swearing on our people!!
