Karachites, although not worried considering past experiences with heatwaves but still alarmed and frustrated.

Jokes and humor aside, let’s not forget how many lives were lost due to extreme heat and zero efforts to battle it. Let’s stay prepared and look out for the less privileged ones including traffic wardens and laborers.
