just a thought-
Karachi is my home. I have lived here since forever. Though, there are somethings that always baffle me about this city. For instance, it is taken that if you have studied from any prestigious grammar/convent school you would definately come across as the one with too-much-attitude.
I have been noticing alot of this lately,it could be happening earlier but I have only seen this now. This divide. Is it really justifiable? Just because you have an accent or have been lucky enough to have studied from abroad, does that elevate you? Can that make you a better human being than the rest of us? I don’t know if any foreign qualification endorses somebody’s right to excercise derogatory behaviour towards rest of the citizens.
It’s a great feeling knowing that graduates are returning to this country, to this city, at the expense of cribbing about this city’s lack of a proper system. Cribbing may be okay too, as long as something constructive comes out of it. Coming back home and acting like you’ve done this city a favour, just doesn’t work. Do you agree that this elitist attitude might create a massive rift?
-footnote- Didn’t mean to generalise. I am sure there are great many people who are not like that. But those who are, they don’t do Karachi any favours.
