kerosene in Chitral
Chitral --As if the flood havoc,
absence of water and electricity was not enough, the residents
of Chitral are now plagued with adulteration in Kerosene oil
available at the petrol pumps and markets. Kerosene oil is these
days the standard fuel used to light hurricane lanterns at Sehr
and Iftar times, when the WAPDA makes it a point to turn off
the electric power. The usual phrase heard from kerosene lamp users
these days is, "latain phakay phakay baghai"
