the end of all sanity


there are reasons why auditors are generally considered to be the wierdest form of humanity after pakistan muslim leaguers and p.i.a. air hostesses. innate wit and a splendid sense of humour are not among them. neither, of course, is sanity. so when you become the ball being kicked around between managers who insist you get to the client to do work that cannot be done without client interaction and clients who seem to think that an audit is the best time to go on vacation, wierd things happen to the audit room. fortunately, the client people keep dropping in to give us presentations so we cleaned it up before anyone else saw it.


and before we could get involved in more grafitti i decided the only thing we could do under the circumstances is that most karachi thing of all – go to seaview. so we did. and as always we were not the only fools doing our thing at the beach in the blazing 4 pm sun. of course the rest of them were snake charmers and guys renting out horses and camels and the irritating pest of a photographer who managed to screw up almost all the pics he took, even the one of me and oz doing the tango in knee high water.

well obviously you can’t go to the beach every day of the week, its not the done thing and in the spirit of national identity you don’t want to make your lahori compatriots jealous. they after all don’t have a beach, just a stormwater drain they like to call a canal. to each his own i guess. anyways this being friday, the sabbath of the faithful, we went to offer our prayers at the noor-e-iman mosque which is irritatingly near enough my home to ensure that there will always be at least three people i know who will see me and comment on how much weight i’ve put on. to round off the day and bring myself closer to achieving iman we went to see the premiere of iman ali’s first movie at the dungpile they call prince cinema. its an insult to the supremely gorgeous iman to screen her at a place where it’s raining paan ki peek. that said, i now have no doubt left in my mind that iman is not a human. she’s a nymph from heaven. no human woman could be that beautiful. except fudge, who’s even better in her own way but thats another story for another day.

for now i leave you with the task of trying to imagine how crappy a sweet city khopra candy can taste. the stuff they pack in the chuara bags these days. my cousins will be the death of me.

  1. isnt that thing you call sea the place where all oil tankers unload their oil to mix with water and karachites?
    yeah, lahore will NEVER know the sweet oil/sea stench cuz their trees and parks and greenery clear up all the err… air they breathe in.

    but hang on. if you think about it though, the lahore’s canal, or umm.. what you referred to as the sewer pipeline goes into the river. which flows directly into the sea.
    so basically you performed a tango in lahori waste?
    eww. but yeah, to each his own.
