Last night, after many weeks of feeling secretly demoralized with the city, I felt the Karachi spirit rise up inside me again at the culmination of a Foundation Year project at the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture. An event management project held by the first year for the friends, alumni and students, Karachi Nights was a comment on everything we love and crib about, in this dusty city of ours. From the dinner food served on the roadside thelas a la Burns Road and Boat Basin style, to the gorgeously done twinkling lights and stars, all the way to the W-11 passenger personalities, ethically mismatched love stories, timechecks, annoying ads and qawwalis, it was a hilariously true tribute to Karachi in every sense of the word. Unfortunately, it wasn’t open to public for many reasons (one being that it was an actual graded project) but it is something that one can definitely request them to go public with. After all, Karachi loves attention.
This is jammie, signing out.
