Eliminating Power Theft (Published Write-up)

Electricity theft is a major cause of revenue loss and circular debt in the case of Pakistan. Power theft alone costs hundreds of million dollars every year to electricity distribution companies in Pakistan.  It is obvious that electricity crisis cannot be handled without combating rampant electricity theft in the country.

A solution has been tried in Karachi, Pakistan where the power utility of the city, K-Electric, according to the media reports has installed Aerial Bundled Cables in kunda-infested areas. With these cables, it is impossible for power thieves to apply hook connections and also ensures proper supply of electricity to the houses, saving electrical equipment’s from short-circuit.

Below is the article  that got published in Business Recordera leading financial daily in Pakistan and the first such publication to be published in the Muslim world. The publication is owned by the Business Recorder Group which is one of South Asia’s preeminent media conglomerates.

Don’t Throw, Recycle It!

Earth Day is an annual event which is being observed worldwide on April 22, 2016. The reason behind celebrating this day is to create awareness about environmental protection and how can we contribute to the environment?

As a Pakistani and a Karachiite, I feel disheartened to see piles of garbage lying across the city.

As an individual, I try not to litter on the streets but my part is like a drop in the sea. What we need is a collective reform to counter this issue.

Recycling is a concept which is novice in Pakistan, however, it is happening around the world.

I have written an article about recycling and how can we do our bit!
