Pindiites worried about scarcity of water
The last few years have seen water provision in Rawalpindi rise to the top of the news agenda like never before.
The city life has its strains, predicament, shocks, and tight spots, some more thrilling than others.
“It’s a sad fact of Pindites’ life that they must worry about the scarcity of something as essential as water.

“I also did not need as much water in the kitchen as I initially thought.
