It seems as if Shahrah-e-Faisal will no longer be known as the busiest road in Karachi. Rather, it seems that the road should now be dubbed as Shahrah-e-Mobile. Drive down Shahrah-e-Faisal these days and you’ll know what I mean. First up, you see an Instaphone billboard, advertising, next you’ll see tons of small Jazz billboard, in a horrendous red and yellow color. Drive further up near FTC and Iman Ali laughs at you from another huge Jazz billboard. Cross the FTC signal and voila! Its the new player in town – Telenor. Also if you look at the right side, you’ll see a GO CDMA and a Ufone billboard. On the left hand side is of course – Paktel! Tell me, do these cellular phone companies really think they’ll manage to hook customers by turning the city’s skyline into a game of ‘lets put up the highest billboard ever’ and make citizens who adore their city get extremely terrified of a huge billboard falling on them during a windy day?

    Rightly said – I was thinking more in lines of Shahra-e-Billboard. I would love to have estimates on the number of billboards on Shahra-e-Faisal.

    Then in turn we could calculate the amount of money these multi-nationals give to destroy the beauty of Karachi.
