    It is good to see that Pakistanis in the villages have been taking interest in cricket! Proud to see a modern looking building on the left in this picture of a typical village seen from Pakistan.

    Typical village? The picture was taken in Karachi.

    Well, Karachi has villages and rural areas too!
    Is this pciture from Gadap or Khokrapar?

    I wouldn’t know. I am not even in the country. :)

    p’hir vohee murghee kee aik Taang!????

    I said it, I don’t believe this. This picture is of a simple place like Jhang or SaanghaR. In Karachi, we have paved roads. Please…will ya?

    You are doing cut-and-paste like Awab to confuse Karachiites. You took a picture of some small town or a village, and photoshoped a multistory buidling and a clock tower like structure in it.
    Shame on you to make Karachi look like such a backward place!
    You will never succeed.

    yes it is the lane opposite the tower you can see the big bus taking a u-turn on the IIchundriger road…..from the MAJinnah road….very poetic indeed!

    The place is called Kapra Market(Cloth Market). The building visible on the left is called Lateef Cloth market,most of the karachi based textile barons started out humbly from small kiosks type cabin shops in that market and many of them still operate and maintain those cabins despite making it big in textile business.

    @maulvi balma

    Let me respond to most of the impractical suggestions that you made earlier against line drying laundry. As high as 97% of the whole world line dries their laundry,most of people in developed and technologically like Japan,china,korea,Australia,Newzealand line dry.In US almost 6 to 15 % of electricity is eaten up by electric driers. Now a venture capitalist like you instead of leasing eletric driers for apartment complexs should stick to traditional old fashioned means i.e. you should instead invest and maintain fleet of donkey carts and start taking care of public dirty laundry under the brand name "Baba Balma dry cleaners ~ Striving hard to keep your laundry away from limelight" .

    Burqua-Poshe Awab = jali doctor, don’t insult me. I am the allama:-)
    Not a garden variety maulvi.
    It is funny that you will bring up the term venture capitalist for me:-)

    And, here we are discussing whether this picture is from Karachi or not…and, I think not….if you want to discuss dhobi.con, then go back to the right thread:-)

    Also, i don’t think you have any interest in making Karachi look clean…so go ahead, and put your lungi for every one to see in your balcony!

  16. balma on June 23rd, 2009 @ 7:43 pm

    yaar, vaisay rolling up dhobi businesses is not a bad idea!
    Burqua poshe Awab, you want to partner with me in this DhobiOnLine.com?

    Amazing photograph! It looks like something one would find in TIME or National Geographic. Also goes to show that there is a tremendous room for improvement in the living conditions of the inner city areas.
