Where in Karachi # 95

Everyone knows that if you are a true karachiite, you dont know the names of the roads. Instead you know places by landmarks. So i thought we’d do something different again, how many of you can guess where this road is?

    Tipu Sultan road is in Nursery Area of PECHS karachi. You need to make a right on road to actually see this board from Shaheed-e- Millat Road before the Sharea Faisal Intersection.
    I still remember it after 10 years of out of Karahci.

    To be precise its Tipu Sultan and Shaheed-e-MIllat junction in the diagonal corner you get Yaqeen Model School –

    BTW this place is a MESS with the sewage pipeline dug up – avoid for your dear life

    @Mansoor, its not fear, how can you say that “if you are a true karachiite, you know places by landmarks”
    Nothing is visible in the pict. except the road name, how can you guess then, its annoying for anybody if they cant figure it out with this kind of pict. plz dont use these words again.

    I have not been to soo many places in Khi so that means I am not a true karachiite???

    I have never been to Korangi, Orangi, Landi kotal, Defence, Mangho pir, do you think everybody have seen the whole of Khi ? even if they have been, do you think they can remember?

    @KhiTorPit
    Just wondering since when did Landi Kotal become part of khi??? Or am I wrong? I know about Landi, but wasn’t Landi Kotal in the northern areas of Pak?


  11. Dictator (unregistered) on May 30th, 2007 @ 10:02 am

    As written this is Tipe Sultan Road.
    @Shiraz
    Landi Kotal is in Karachi also. This is the area between FB Area and North Nazimabad. The Chowrangi between FB Area and North Nazimabad is known as the Landi Kotal Chowrangi (aka Choor Chowrangi). Mostly our Pathan brothers live there with shops of repairing bicycles and sharping knives

    Was this a question for the ‘intellectually challenged’?


  13. Taqi (unregistered) on May 30th, 2007 @ 2:09 pm

    Aray haan I have never been to ShahFaisal colony, NewKarachi and Landhi also.

    @Mansoor, I am still waiting for your reply.


  16. mansoor (unregistered) on May 30th, 2007 @ 7:11 pm

    khitorpit: most of us are absolutely zero with names of roads, i mean, how many actually know where shahrah-e-iran is? or Chaudhry Rehmatullah Aleh Road is? or even Pir Pagara Road? Yet many travel on them everyday. We know places by “British council wali road” or “schon circle wale road” or even “Aga khan wali road”.

    That was the point, obviously, given the size of the city i dont think there are even a hundred people who actually have seen the whole city.

    p.s.
    Almost everybody is right on this thread :p next time.. i’ll give a little challenging one.

    GI Joe: It was a test of ‘knowing the obvious’ yaar… this road is one of the few people actually know the name of, that too because its a famous turn on SF.


  17. KhiTorPit (unregistered) on May 30th, 2007 @ 7:27 pm

    @Mansoor, you didnt get me, my only concern was the words which you have used “if you are a true karachiite”

    @mansoor
    A very stupid post indeed. Keep it up!


  19. Tamed~. (unregistered) on May 30th, 2007 @ 11:20 pm
