WAPDA and Overload’s cel­e­bra­tion of life — Batti

By Fareeha Qay­oom


was surf­ing the chan­nels in search of news this morn­ing before leav­ing for work when I caught the cho­rus line of Overload’s lat­est sin­gle – “Batti” – loved it; not because the beat was excel­lent or the vocals were so heart­felt or because the video was interesting…what struck a chord with me were the words – “batti ayay ya na ayay – Dhol bajay ga!” (Lit­eral trans­la­tion: regard­less of power out­ages, the drum will beat on!”)


Yes, life goes on in Pak­istan in spite of WAPDA’s best efforts to grind things to a halt. Overload’s com­ment on our cur­rent affairs is spot on and in ret­ro­spect extremely funny since noth­ing is fun­nier than the truth…


Here’s Overload’s take on Pakistan’s power out­ages!
