old … and new …
Karachi has a rather rapid velocity of change. Both visible and invisible. Amidst the clamourous tumult of this traffic and machinery in this city there are a million silent voices as well. All evident, all hidden, all ever changing.
The physical appearance of the city is changing at a rapid pace. Underpasses, Roads, Buildings, Hoardings, Shops and Houses spring up from the ground as if Dwarves from stone. Glass structures jostle with Jhimpir Stone for the face of the city. It is an interesting competiton; one get’s to see what we are ready to replace and what we tenaciously hold onto.
Does anyone else here also get lost because of the removal of older buildings that we use to remember places by?
Is that wrong?
Should we live in a continuous state of change?
