Oh God! Save Me! Forgive them!


At least, a few of you may remember the following lines from an earlier post by me.

“But there are many shops selling pet animals here who are even importing dangerous and unusual pets such as Lions, Tigers, Baboons or even Pythons. Recently a python found on a road in Sharjah had created some panic to the passer-bys. Illegal trade of near extinct animals is reported many a times in media.”

Once again I have come across a similar incident reported by media here. A Cheetah was roaming free on streets at Sharjah! After the stroll, it was found resting near a mosque. Obvious, must be praying to save him from cruel humans who kept him in captivity.

SWEATING OUT CANDLE LIGHT DINNERS


Candle light dinners are usually considered as romantic.

Once a while you may feel it heavenly and turn off the lights.

How about one at Sharjah now? Sharjah residents are now having such dinner’s everyday in their life. But if you need to sweat out through the dinner will it be romantic?

Reason to sweat out is the power outages. And leave the dinner, how it will be to sweat out all the day and the days to come in a desert city?

Ask the Sharjah residents about it. I have experienced few days of that sort in last year August and this year May. Problems seemed to have been resolved until 1st of Jul 2010 when I was leaving for my vacation to India, and people were relieved and optimistic. But now I am receiving fresh reports of power outages in Sharjah, even in the international media as well as in person update from my dad who is in Sharjah now and scheduled to join us in India next month. He has sent me few links and a photo of himself sleeping in the car at night, keeping the AC on.

And finally, power returns to most of the areas in Sharjah.
