Perhaps like Adil, I should also start a section on picture(s) of the day. This photograph, taken in Karachi, provides a new meaning to fuel-efficiency, ride-sharing, and traffic safety. Interesting to note who happens to be the only person wearing a safety device? (And in the US they worry about Brittney Spears being unsafe by putting her kid in the driver seat with her :)).
On a serious note: What can be done about this? Could this family afford a car? Should there be strict enforcement of safety laws? What does this say about (perceived?) safety and comfort in using public transportation?
Thanks to Mansoor for the photo.
