Pictures depicting life in Pakistan during power outages.
as being engineer i feel ashamed for this darkness…..could have contributed in much better way
Shame on us.
This is really depressing to see! I recommend people start investing in solar panels & hybrid wind solutions for themselves and stop relying on the government for electricity. That seems to be the only solution in Pakistan. But I know this is easier said then done when households and businesses are suffering due to higher inflation.
The photos may be depressing but they do show the spirit of just moving on despite the setback. The hardworking printing worker, policeman and girl studying show that they soldier on with great dignity and strength. The spirit of Pakistan, although it gets beaten quite a bit can never be broken. Great photos!
