    Thanks Hina Safdar, I wish we the people of Pakistan may celebrate it with the same zeal and zest as the others do. Alas! We don’t have any electricity to celebrate that great occasion with our planet fellows. Plz tell them we can switch off our candles and emergency lights for them but have no electricity. Also tell them that in Pakistan for electricity it takes 12 to 18 hour to come back and switch on any electric installation.
    You may quote our load shedding detail as an earth hour celebration.
    Regards
