    YES!!!!!!!!!!!! that it, I needed to see karachi from this perspective, everyday karachi, no special events, occasions, people etc. Can you guys kindly make some vidoes of Karachi on your own – take the most oridinary happenings, the mundane, the right next door kind of things and put up on this blog, it will be really a BIG service. Thanks

    wow!! Kind of makes those of us who live abroad a bit misty eyed, especially with that nusrat fateh ali tune playing along.

    But, it seems that Abby had a fascination with trucks and buses and rikshaws.

    And, if memory serves (and correct me if i’m wrong), there were no pictures of the beaches…Karachi without showing the arabian sea….come on!

    Thank you folks. We are going to start video blogging soon. Work under progress. Meanwhile, thanks to Google!

    P.S. Faisal, ummm, there was some beach… but this movie gives us some ideas for more montages. Hai naa KMB writers!?

    Please let us know where and when will you upload the videos, and whether they will be up for public viewing. MB bloggers and the readers would love the treat.

    I think all budding videoguys should do that. So all you all, dust off your video cameras and send in your videos to google.

    HAHAHA!! – i’ll have to blur out the faces like they do on ‘cops’ before i publish them anywhere on the web ;-)
    But seriously – its a time consuming task – but i’ll get it done one day…..still playing around with software – and its hard to find time between family, friends, cricket, playstation etc etc…!
