I have been living in Karachi for years but still many areas are Unknown to me, I often make discoveries. Yesterday I came across another discovery while going to Jum‚Äôa Prayers. I was in my office and a bit late for the Jama‚Äôt in nearby mosques, I had no options to fulfill the obligation because there wasn‚Äôt any vehicle available and it was difficult to reach other mosques on foot due to time constraint. I didn‚Äôt give up and suggest to go a mosque not too far from my facilities but across a ‚ÄúBroad Sewage Naala‚Äù (Sewage Stream) actually our factory is situated at Gabol Town, Federal B Area (further from Suhraab Goth) and the ‚ÄúNaala‚Äù behind our facilities is quite wide. Anyway I crossed it and eventually I was in a new world‚Ä¶ although Naala Facing areas were fetid but the smell disappeared as I entered the streets. The locality looks like a small Afghan town beard men, veiled women and cute but dirty kids playing some kids were looking after their goats like a trained shepherd; not to forget mentioning a beautiful adolescent girl peeping out behind a door.
I reached the mosque in time, it was full with people wearing huge ‚ÄúPagris‚Äù and I was looking an odd man there. A white beard Imam was delivering sermon in a language I cannot understand I think it was ‚ÄúPashto‚Äù.
While returning I found an Afghan who is working in my department he guided me with some shortcuts and within five minutes I was at the factory‚Äôs gate.
