Its all about the freedom of life on the road, a personal adventure that leads a biker to the sea shores of Pakistan. This adventure started with passion, hope, fear of unseen and ended giving experiences & memories of good times to be recalled. It also helped me discover myself and taught me lessons to be remembered.

Checked some more hotels but again went to same hotel where stayed last night. Last night they given me room which was near to kitchen sink and I got disturbed in night by the sounds of dishes washings. I asked the owner/manager Haji Juma Khan Tareen to please keep me away from that sink today. He then offered me room reserved for himself and said"Mein apna room apko deta hon lekin namaz ke wakt wazo k liye mein washroom use keronga tou ap kamra khol dena kion k yeh mere counter se kareeb parta hai." I replied "Haji Sb mein idher hua tou khol donga lekin agar mein bahar gya tou lock ker k jayonga". So the verbal mutual agreement was done and key was handed over to me. But he never came to use it. He belonged to Pishin district of Balochistan. He was speaking so much susht urdu like Hyderabadians that out of wonder I asked him "Haji Sb. ap tu pathan hu tu phir itni saf local language kaisey boltey hu". He replied "Humara khandan to Pishin se tha lekin main tu paida bhi idhar hua hon Pishin tu abhi kai salon se nahi gia hon".
Went back to hotel, parked the bike in parking and went to hotel room.
Haji Sb's trick of "How to prevent a chapal from being theft" or one may say "Anti theft Mechanism".
Turned on TV and watched news. News of Petrol Shortage in Punjab specially in Lahore was being broadcasted. Also shown that Karachiites also getting panic by petrol shortage rumors and approaching fuel stations to get their vehicle's fuel tanks toped up. Mein ne socha Karachi walon ko bhi abhi panic hona tha kuch din pehley ya bad mein hu jatey.
I slept then with a plan k is se pehley k idhar waley bhi panic hu jaien rastey mein jahan jahan se petrol mila tank full kerwata jaonga.
Away from the noises of sink, I slept with a leisure the previous night and woke up late. Lagta tha Haji Sb. ka room honey ki koi barkat bhi shamil thi jo 2/3 din baad mazey ki nend ayi. Subah mein ne check out kertey sameh Haji sb. ko pista jo mein ne aik din pehley lia tha aur merey pas kuch bacha hua tha bataur hadiya pesh kia jo unhon ne kabool ker liya. Anyway after doing breakfast and tieing up the luggage on bike departed for Karachi around 11am. This time I taken National Highway(N-5) from Jamshoro Toll Plaza. this was the only link of Karachi to rest of the country prior to the construction of Super highway(1969 made by Italians in General Yahya Khan Regime and was the first International standard highway in the country).
