Divided by borders, united by monsoon woes is what seems to happening across the sub-continent. Like many Indian cities which get inundated in water after few hours of monsoon showers, Karachi too had its share of monsoon damper as heavy rains lashed Pakistan's coastal city. Visuals of inundated roads, submerged roads and waves of water gushing over roads filled the Internet.
However, amid the weather blues, a few videos stood out and were a comic relief to beat the blues. One of the videos showed a man comfortably going with the flow of water over a road stunning the people around. He seemed to be reclining on a support as it went with the flow of rainwater. While its not clear from the video what has kept the man afloat, his inflated salwar gives a hint though.
Gone with the rain! A car is seen too in the video struggling hard to come out of the troubled waters.

While some found the video funny, others expressed concern saying the water is contaminated and venturing out like this can cause infections and other diseases. Here are some reactions:

To some people, the video was a representation of what they say "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade"!
