Chand Raat Celebration

If I am not mistaken it appears as if this night is significantly more celebrated then Eid itself. The entire city of Karachi makes it a point to come out in full force to celebrate this night. There are literally thousands of cars which start plying the streets somewhere around 9 pm and continue to hog the already congested and under construction lanes of our city well up to 3 or 4am at night

Mehendi sites are numerous and usually crowded to the brim with girls having their hands painted, on this night it also appears as if the bachelor guys ensure that families cannot have a respectful walk around. I wish I could wrap these guys up and ship them to gawadar for one night, as I feel they have no moral values, and tend to be a far bigger nusiance value destroying the spirit of the event.

This years hot spot were the usual Forum and Park Towers, one significantly noticed the emptiness around the Agha’s supermarket more to do with the Schon circle’s heart by-pass operation which must have put a small dent into Aghas revenue. I had planned to do a pictorial of this years chand raat but sadly forgot my camera at home. Anyways – I wish you all a very Happy Eid, filled with all the joy the world has in store for you. Chand Raat Mubarak to all
