  • Are you kidding me??? We celebrate Earth Hour everyday for several hours.

    Kiya Bakwaas hai yeh, Bhair Chaal Chalna Zaroori hai kiya? :-X


    • I understand your concern, that’s why writer has written k switch-off lights if you are already not struck with power outage.

    • Pata hai. Kuch cheezein apne kudhne kerni hoti hai. Mere ghar raat 0730 se 0830 light jati hai mager March 26th ko mein khud 0830 se 0930 light bandh rekho ga. Isliye k mujhe apne siyaray se pyar hai. Hum logo ko chahiye k kuch demagh ko khula rekhein aur kuch apni anay wali nasloon ke liye kerein.

      Kuch kaam dekhne mein fazul hotay hain magr unka kerna zarori hota hai.

      • with every day 5 hours of load shedding i wouldn’t be doing this because we are doing it daily 5 hours

        Jisne ye din invent kya hai usse kaho ke rozana 10 ghantey apni electrcity bhi band rakhey tab jakar ye Dunya safe hogi, purey saal men 1 din uspar 1 ghanta band rakhne se kuch nahin hoga

  • at least ppl live in karachi are not going to be the part of this, being the one of the karachian, i would like to share my experience with KESC, as one of the KESC official S.Kolachi said “KESC is not accepting the consumption of less than 100 units of electricity if so then one should charge with the avrg of 200+ unit bill every month” If this will remain the attitude of KESC officials then why and how could we help them in dimming our lights and so.

  • every Pakistani celebrate Earth-Hour(load-shedding) mind u HOURS every day(minimum 10 hours a day)

    and all over the world they only celebrate it once in a year for only 1 hour

    thats ridiculous.


  • Actually they enforced Earth Hour prior to the decided time. NO ELECTRICITY THIS TIME!!!! LOL!!!
