When you’re a Karachiite, you know naseeb mei bus garmi khana likha hai, but not this winters! The city has been experiencing one of the coldest winters with chilly breezes and a bit of rain here and there and people are just not ready for it.
Taking to Twitter, people have been sharing how cold the Karachi winters have been and it’s hilarious!
My friend in Calgary was crying because of cold weather. He sent me this… I said to him, "abay yeh kya sardi hai, tu Karachi ja tujhay pata chalay sardi kya hoti hai"
At least that's what I've got from Karachites crying on Twitter pic.twitter.com/qmSUFIdkrA

We’re wondering the same:
When did Karachi and sardi sign a long term deal?

Today will go down in history as a sad day in #Karachi
The day we gave up & turned on the heater in our inverter AC at work
The #cold #front has won. The #Resistance has lost.
But the room is much warmer/ nicer and we can finally get work done for a change.

Dil pe chhuriyan toh mat chalao yar:

Everyone who thinks Karachi is over reacting, read this!
Folks who mock ‘Karachi Winter’ & Karachiites calling it such…STFU! We KNOW it’s not a ‘real Winter’ like other parts of Pakistan. But for a city that lives in hot humidity 90% of the year, that slight shift in weather in the WINTER MONTH is noticeable & cause of celebration 👊🏼

You're a special kind of stupid if you're mocking Karachiites for feeling cold and comparing the temperature over there to Quetta's. They're obviously not used to it, just like we aren't used to extreme summers. Thori common sense, please?

Seh leinge thora:
Karachi walo k liye itni sardi hi boht hai.

Some were worried about the climate change:
The current cold wave in Karachi is yet another reminder for our country that climate change is real and that this is not normal. It is worrying that our country has no plan in action to combat one of the greatest threats the world is facing, we being effected enormously from it.

People were distributing sweaters and blankets to the less privileged:
Leadership is about empathy, connection & empowerment of the people you lead.
To cater the recent cold wave in #Karachi, Blankets were distributed among the people sleeping in hospital waiting areas & railway station on the directions of worthy #CMSindh#DistrictSouth #Sindh pic.twitter.com/Eyza3nWvvN

Some were living for the Karachi winters:
I know a lot of Karachiites have been complaining about the colder winters but as someone who hasn’t experienced Karachi winter in exactly a decade, y’all need to appreciate it. Karachi winters are beautiful.
