ISLAMABAD - Out of the heavy rains on Saturday morning and those that preceded and followed the same, emerged a more green and clean city. The first spell of the rainy monsoon season, which started a week or two earlier than usual, resulted a havoc along the banks of the bloody Nullah Leh and other low-lying areas of the twin cities. The unexpected flood in Leh again claimed a number of precious lives and destroyed public properties and businesses worth billion of rupees, leaving behind panic and deep grief in the areas which it hit. On the other hand, the torrential showers washed down layers of dust from trees, buildings and other physical structures in the federal capital, which had turned gloomy because of the increasing pollution and dust in the city. However, the rain cleaned off the dust from the city's face and refreshed the green landscapes for which Islamabad is known and appreciated throughout the world. "I really enjoy the scene of green landscape stretched down the roadsides as seen through the back-view mirror", said a motorist while talking to TheNation. I feel while driving the car, he added, as if I am looking at some garden through the windowpane of my room. The mercury level, too, dropped down considerably and the weather, especially at night times, turned pleasant, rather cold and the people seemed a bit relieved after experiencing months long spell of hot and sweaty weather. "It is really difficult to work when it is hot and humid and you are soaked in sweat", expressed an employee of a government organisation. He said the rain has turned the weather 'live-worthy' and had revitalized his energies. Moreover, the monsoon rains that greatly accelerate growth rate of grasses, beatified the green belts by the roadsides, especially the newly constructed 9th and 7th Avenues, on one hand. On the other, the spontaneously grown grass with long strands choked the trails built for strollers at various places of the city. However, the heavy grown grasses at various accidental open spaces require serious attention of the CDA bosses. These grasses should be cut off on regular basis as the same could be used as hideouts for criminals, thus posing severe security threats. It is pertinent to mention here that an eyewitness of the other day's suicide blast at Melody Chowk had claimed that the suicide bomber had come out of the shrubbery on the other side of the road.
