Mera Roshnion ka Shehar Karachi

By Dr. M Mansoor Mohiuddin Do huftey ka safarnama.
 
No matter what you hear, Karachi usi tarah zindah hey jis tarah aap ko yaad hoga. Do Crore key shehar main beshak loog her din mar rahe hain magar zindagi ki rawani main koi kumi nahi hey. Restaurants usi tarah bharey hain aur bazaar main wohi chehal pehal hey. In the two weeks I was there we didn’t lose power for even one minute. Mujhe do din lagey apney “induced” khauf ko nikalney main phir wohi surhkain theen aur wohi awarapun.
 
There is a parallel economy that is running Karachi and perhaps the country. This parallel economy is very strong and very visible. Karachi ki surhkon pe her kism ki garhi nazar aa jai gi Ferrari, Porsche, 7 series BMW, Range Rover, you name it and it is there.

Longyearbyen: 78 degrees North

By Irfan Ahmad
