Metropolitan of Karachi needs a savior more than ever at the moment. Torrential rains have wrecked havoc on the people and infrastructure of Karachi, thoroughly exposing the incompetency of the provincial government that has been ruling the province for decades.

In such times, when the state of Karachi is quite uncertain, stories like the sort of “Chotu Ustad Mechanic” certainly cheer us all up. People of Karachi are yet again showcasing the spirit that no matter what the hardship may be, the essence of fraternity shall never perish from the hearts of Karachiites and Pakistanis.

The Unnamed Hero Among Us
This young soul, unfortunately, does not have a name on record. “Chotu Ustad Mechanic” is what the social media has preferred to name him instead. Apparently, Chotu Ustad saved the day for Karachiites by repairing bikes for free. One can only imagine the horrible imagery of a bike failing in the middle of the an urban flooding, with unstoppable rain blowing 90 year old records out of the water. This guy literally helped many bikers by repairing their bikes for them so that they could reach to safety as soon as possible. A citizen named Shayan Khan took his experience to a group at Facebook, Halaat Updates and told that this young man refused to take any money for his heroic service.
Selfless people like him deserve much more than just appreciation posts all around social media. The least people like us can do is thank people like him who are devoting themselves to the ease of people in difficulty in such troubling times.
Alarming Condition of Karachi
Karachi has never witnessed a sanitation and drainage crisis quite like this in its history. Climate change takes a toll on this city every year more than ever before but the concerned authorities find it rather easier to participate in blame game than employing constructive efforts. If the idiosyncrasy of Karachi’s regional climate refuses to nullify itself, the citizens of the city will surely find themselves in trouble because the “chosen ones” in government institutions cannot do anything.
It is the civic responsibility of citizens as well to not litter the drainage systems and to take care of people around oneself.
