With the 2018 New Year Eve forthcoming, preparations for celebrations are already under way in Islamabad – beautiful capital of Pakistan . Current year, the New Year has unique importance as it overlaps with Eid Celebrations.
Generally party enthusiasts in Islamabad either belong to the elite of the city or diplomatic community, who would dance, drink and make merry throughout the night. We also have the youth of the Islamabad generally welcome the New Year by roaming the roads of the Islamabad through the night.
Unique parties are being scheduled in the Diplomatic Enclave, Canadian Club, UN, Marriott, and Islamabad club. Most of them would be secret parties with guest invitation via passes only.
Each year, hospitals get scores of severely wounded victims of ‘”New Year night” mainly belonging to youth. One-wheeling caused lots of accidents in the past on the same night.
With winter vacation and all, people generally to their hometowns. Especially the case current year is that there is going to be the Eid-ul Azha as soon as the New Year comes, so that would mean that cities, especially capital of Pakistan, are going to be little empty.
That is forever a very bad part of holidays. Islamabad comes as silent as the city, where the dead are likely to walk, which only occurs because most people of capital city are not rooted there.
With New Year, the top part is that both the cities, Islamabad and Rawalpindi are decorated with neon lights. You name it; the markets or bazaars, all the official buildings, and most of the fire jobs are a blast. As soon as clock turns a second above twelve midnight, sky lights up with beautiful sounds and boom boom are the sounds you heard everywhere.
The police took measures to safe the Islamabad for the New Year celebrations. A capital of Pakistan Territory administration official told that over two thousands police officials had been deployed around 280 markets, 6 entry and exit points and 30 open places of the Islamabad. The bomb disposal squad officers also checked celebrations venues such as F-10 market, Kohsar market, and Jinnah Super. Undeterred by the attendance of police officials youngsters on motor bikes and 4 wheelers thronged to shopping area and the roads of various areas on the beats of Pakistani, western and Indian music.
