Hey people, Today I thought I should talk about my City... Karachi. I dont want to talk about how disturbing the situation is or how people are unsafe or it's all getting worst..... instead I want to talk about it's beauty, it's adorable people, it's crowdy market places, the magnificent sea shore.....
This is such a beautiful city. The nicest thing that I truly adore about this city is that it welcomes and accepts new people from any part of the world. One could rarely see such a mixture of culture as they can see it here in Karachi. You can see a Pathan vendor selling his carpets and right next to his shop you'd see a Punjabi with cuisines set up on his counter. You see, it's so adorably wonderful seeing people from all over the country and of all different cultures sitting at the same place, doing somewhat same things and truly loving each other. No wonder it is called Mini Pakistan!
I myself, am a resident of an area where Pathan , Punjabi , Sindhi , Balochi and urdu-speaking live in the same neighborhood. They dont have any problems with each other and live quite happily, infact they help each other with all their hearts if and when it is needed.
Then there is this beautiful seashore, the Arabian sea that has one end in Karachi. That place is amazing. Some of the places are not so tidy due to lack of awareness but some places are clean and tidy.
Then comes the shopping venues. There are fully air conditioned, cool and awesome malls in the city that cater absolutely everything that one needs. But everyone can not afford that. It's expensive for most of the population so, there're these other market places that are affordable with some handy goods available and those who dont have huge bank accounts and their daddy's mills can always buy from there.Yes this city caters the need of all those who work. Even the poorest people (WHO WORK) get atleast One meal of the day.
The people of Karachi are awesome, truly awesome. They'd lend you a helping hand if your car has dumped you in the middle of the road. If you dont know the route to some place, they'll guide you. If they see some old woman or man in a public bus and they did'nt get a seat they'd stand and give their own seats to them. If they see you on an empty road and you're with your family they'll stop by and tell you it's not a safe place and you should move from here. There's this one funny thing that happened with my family once. We still laugh when we recall it.
I was going somewhere with my family, we never went to that area of the city before so we called our relatives to come and pick us up. The place was quite empty and there were'nt street lights on so it was dark. We were standing there and also were scared of getting robbed. And zhoooppp!! there comes a motorcycle with two men on it, my brother gets out of his car, one of the men gets up and shakes hand with my brother and tells him he should'nt be standing here, it is very dangerous to do so. As he says this, I see a pistol on his side on the belt that was barely being seen only from my side. OH MY GOD, I showed it to my family member sitting right next to me and we Start thinking we are gone...!! In my mind I'm thinking I just got a new phone why is this happening I just got it and Ohh Will he spare our lives.!! Ohh We're gone..!!! Nobody can even trace us here it's so dark!! Finally without taking anything from us, the men move from there and when they go forward where the street lights were turned on, I see their dresses and THEY WERE GUARDS...!!!! And we laughed our heads off and moved to another place where our relative finally found us and we went away. We came back quite easily afterwards but those few moments in between were truly horrible moments. Seriously!! And now whenever we recall it, we laugh so much.
Over and out with a promise to bring something good to you next time.
