La Vuelta al Mundo con Escala en China.

En el mes de mayo de 1993 un avión DC-10-15 y un grupo de pilotos, sobrecargos e ingenieros de vuelo de Mexicana de Aviación fueron protagonistas de un acontecimiento que
daba la vuelta al mundo y el cuarto de bandera nacional en protagonizarlo, el vuelo tuvo tal cantidad de ingredientes aeronáuticos, emocionales políticos, grotescos y dramáticos, que lo hacen todo un acontecimiento.
Como es del dominio público, un barco chino quedo al garete frente a las costas de Baja California con un numeroso contingente de ciudadanos de la gran república asiática que había huido de su país.

Lets talk about something brilliant yet extremely underrated!

Its a long thread, but hope its worth it.

You know where the biggest interest-free Microfinance Bank of the world resides while creating a difference in the lives of bottom-of-pyramid? Europe, Americas, or ME?

Its in #Pakistan, called @Akhuwat, which is a truly global story bringing shift in lives of the bottom of the pyramid with access to interest-free microfinance so they can learn to earn instead of having charity for life!

Started by visionary @DrAmjadsaqib1 with a mere Rs 10k ($180) in year 2001, now 20yrs on, at PKR 140bn ($900mn) worth of interest-free loans disbursed.

Impact: A total of 4 Million 'Families' got benefited from such microfinance...

The situation in #Pakistan. A quick update.

PM #ImranKhan's government is shaken by inflation and shortages, some out of its control but compounded by poor planning & governance. Here, long queues can be seen in some cities for govt-rationed sugar & flour in #Ramadan.
#Pakistan is currently divided between urgent issues and sideshows. Government is finally expediting vaccinations; the professionals at @OfficialNcoc are at it. But Govt also continues to push PM #ImranKhan's agenda against #France, #West on #Islamophobia.
One of the biggest sideshows in #Pakistan today is the explosive interview of a former spy chief who has blown the lid off alleged abuse of spy services by PM #ImranKhan to target his political opponents. Check this trend: #BashirMemonLeaks.

We have to act wisely and immediately. I sense no sign of worries in #Karachi - no precautions, no SOPs. It is sound before storm. Lockdown is coming if we don't change the way we are behaving

#COVID19 #Pakistan
The news from neighbouring country are horrible. Our prayers for them #PakistanstandswithIndia

But, God forbid, are we not going into the same direction? Avoid mass/public gatherings. Don't go out unnecessary. Avoid closed spaces with people. Wear mask.

And, for God sake, pandemic isn't the right time for having parties. May Allah save and your loved ones - then you may have many more parties.

#SethHarchandraiVishandas was called father of #Karachi. He was first local Karachi resident to be President of Karachi Municipality in 1911. He was a member of Congress and a Freedom fighter. He was a secular #Hindu #Pakistan
#Karachi as we know it as a major city in Islamic State of #Pakistan was built by him and he is also often called Father of Karachi. He was behind setting up City’s first Power Plant and earning name City of Lights.
He was as opposed to #Hindu -#Muslim politics like any Hindu today which supports TMC or secular gang and took strong position against Ghar Wapsi being led by Fringe elements like Swami Shraddhanand. A great man, he built first city roads making it modern city like Modi is doing

In an unexpected electoral setback which is shocking, even by #Pakistan's turbulent standards, cricketer-turned-prime minister #ImranKhan faces a crucial #VoteOfConfidence.

Here's a look at @ImranKhanPTI's political career, spanning over two decades.
Propelled by his celebrity & supported by his (now former) wife @Jemima_Khan, Khan's early political career saw him adopt the role of international activist. Here, in 1997, he's on a tour of South Africa with then-President Nelson Mandela.
Philanthropy would form the basis of his politics. The Shaukat Khanum, Pakistan's first cancer research hospital, would be inspired by his mother's demise & become his showcase for organizational change. Months before her own death in 1997, Princess Diana would help raise funds.

#Karachi : Il fait beau ! Mais c'est triste car le #Covid nous interdit d'admirer la splendeur des vitraux de la Sainte-Chapelle en pareilles circonstances... Du coup, on est déjà devant la CJR où le procès de #Léotard et #Balladur doit reprendre à 14h.…
#Karachi : Mais rassurons-nous. L'après-midi risque d'être intéressante. D'abord pour entendre Edouard #Balladur. « Je reviendrais [demain] », a en effet promis, hier, l'ancien Premier ministre, un peu à la manière d'@Schwarzenegger dans #Terminator.
#Karachi : Alerte du haut de ses 91 ans, Edouard #Balladur est certes moins musclé qu'@arnold mais il n'en a pas moins « des choses à dire ». L'audience devrait donc s'ouvrir à 14h par sa déclaration liminaire.
#SpoilerAlert : il va contester les faits.

The massacre of 11 miners in #Balochistan is more of a 'strategic act' than sectarianism. Terrorism in Balochistan cannot be completely controlled without addressing the wider roles of #India & #Iran in #Afghanistan. /1


Many analysts see #hazaragenocide & #Shiagenocide in #Balochistan as part of a local sectarianism problem inside #Pakistan or regionally linked to #Iran & #KSA tussle. But it could have more to do with #Afghanistan than Pakistan or the #Gulf. /2
To understand why #Balochistan incident (incl #Hazara/#Shia attacks) may not necessarily be sectarianism and more an offshoot of a bigger strategic problem, consider this #Ashura attack in #Karachi, which was not sectarian: /3… &…

#Thread #COVIDSecondWave
Dire warning from Dr Darayus Gazder, a young doctor in #Karachi: Second wave is very strong, patients are highly critical and sick. We have a waiting list of over 10 per bed. People are dying/suffering alone w no one to say goodbye!
It's painful
Some deteriorate within minutes. Others who survive COVID have permanent severe #lung damage, can't eat a single meal w/o high flow oxygen, later die painfully as if #drowning once respiratory/cardiac muscles can't compensate as oxygen is depleted.
- Dr Darayus Gazher 2/n
Educated people should take this seriously. But they are Instead throwing parties, weddings, going to sports events, malls, shopping, eating out with no precautions, even mocking the disease. This selfish behaviour must end as it endangers ALL age groups

Here is the promised fictitious map of a public tram network 🚃 in the south of #Karachi, with connections to #KCR 🚊 and the Green and Yellow BRTs 🚌. I didn’t dream it up. I read through hundreds of pages of JICA reports, so you don’t have to. Here’s what I learnt ...
There are some Japanese folks who know Gurumandir, Daakkhana, Lalookhait & Surjani way better than most of us. They spent years conducting surveys, detailed drawings, maps and studies, all compiled into 2 key outputs: KTIP Masterplan (2013) & KCR Preperatory Survey (2013)
Each of those documents is a treasure trove 🎁 and available online. Fun facts: KCR was proposed in the 1952 Master Plan of Karachi, & a slightly modified version was built by 1969. First major piece of civic infrastructure built post partition in Karachi. 🚂
