Gola Danda Anyone?
Its been ages since I had one of these finest delicacies of Karachi found at Dhoraji roundabout. Late night we some how stumbled around the Dhoraji area which was again glittering with some god-knows-what celebration around the entire area, a celebration which the other parts of Karachi remain completely ignorant to.
With the couple of Gola stalls I somehow landed at purchasing the special version from Saleem Qadir Gola. Amid the shouts around me preaching me about the Influenza virus and Bird Flu making its rounds in Karachi, I as a faithful Karachiite choose to brave all hell and choose one of the finest available to devour.
A good five minutes later I was handed a huge cup filled with crushed ice garnished with the colors of the rooh afza rainbow. I probably don’t have to tell you how it tasted but this I can surely attest that I returned with a frozen mouth and am sure body sugar levels must have crossed a thousand with all the garnishing that were added onto the Popsicle.
For our friends not living in Karachi ‘wish you could enjoy this’ *snicker* – but for those residing in this beautiful city of ours, do visit and enjoy this delicacy slowly fading away from our streets.
