Coming out of Radio Pakistan after late night show I usually walk to the Chew Bridge where I stand for a while in order to catch a taxi to go home. During this short distance walk, I speak to myself and see the environment surrounding me. Sometimes I think of becoming a political leader of Chitral and sometimes I think to be a brilliant journalist but what prevails in my thought is to serve my own Chitral and its people. To see the surrounding dark like a cloudy sky at night where stars are scarcely found I think when will we see our Chitral as a town of lights. There were no lights to be seen inside the Chitral Bazaar after 10pm. The dim lights were seen in some houses as it seemed like a small village not a headquarter of about five lac population.
The other day I came out from the same radio station, the time was the same the surrounding was the same and the road was the same but I saw my surrounding different as it was before. All the villages surrounding me were luminous and glowing bulbs seemed hanging around my eyes. I realized the luminous scenery of electricity during night times and suddenly I thought to remind the noisy generators in front of civil magistrate Chitral. I was happy enough thinking that from today those generators will be sold in an auction. There will be no use of generators in offices, in photo copy shops and in composing centers etc any more. The offices will sell their generators and forget the load shedding. The officers will take their smart-phone chargers back to their homes because now that they will enjoy electricity there too. Family members will not blame cable operators and will watch their desired TV channels 24/7. They will Watch cricket matches and leagues with convenience. There will be non- stop electricity supply inside Chitral which was a dire need for a decade.
Now to whom this credit goes as we see different response of people on social media nowadays. Some give the credit to the current MNA of Chitral and some affiliate it the services of former dictator president of Pakistan. Whoever is the person to make it possible, we should appreciate it. But the reality is different as we know any mega power stations in Pakistan who have the capacity to produce electricity of more than 100 mega watts are transmitted to the national grid and from where they are distributed accordingly. So in this regard Chitral is the first in Pakistan to take the royalty before the completion of the transmission line to the national grid station. In this way you may admire the services of former ousted prime minister who made it possible for all Chitralis and due to his kindness our Chitral illuminates today.
