    I haven’t been to this karachi’s most busiest food street….for quite some time…though nothing much has changed over here….I see a board of zain mobile…at the corner…i believe there used to be a Taj music…is the taj gone…?I hope bhashani sweet is still there…

    yadein yadein buss yadein reh jati hain
    kuch choti choti baatein reh jati hain…..

    Bhashani is very much there so are the 4 versions of Fresco (Fasico, Freshco, Fesco) right across that. and Under the bulding from where R.I managed the photo.

    Raja saheb you managed to reach the TOP :) did u tried the new snack products of Original Fresco ( the one with black granite tiling )

    A nice post –

    I suggest you snap around the Empress market area as The Famous Preedy street (moulana deen mohammed wafai road) is under major rework from Regal Crossing to Empress market to Lines area to Sharea Quaideen, am sure you will have an interesting trip.

    Use a 2 wheeler for your adventure! Good luck

    Thanks Shamsi. Will try to take photographs of empress market. I usually go on foot.

    Why a 2 wheeler or on foot , is garmi me, use a 4 wheeler, time ziyada lagay ga, but u will protect ur creativity germs.

    "Choti choti yadeen"

    Sir jee, since when u haven’t visited there, I go there often for after noon munching,

    Bye the way, aap ki choti choti yadeen ab kafi bari hu gai hain, kuch tu apni gaod me new model ki yadeen, khair….

    @shamsi sab….thankGod the bhashani survived….as for the fresco’s are concerned….I believe there has to be a competition….we have a fresco here on tariq road between a jeweler and stationary store….near the ex cafe liberty…..it only has a tray of sweet and a tub of dahi barda’s….I believe their daily turnover is much less than a thela wala on burns road….

    @Raja sab….On foot is the best option these days especially in diversion zone…

    What an amazing picture. Totally captures the hustle and bustle of the city. With a bit of repair work of those beautiful buildings and traffic law enforcement, this place can definitely become "the shiz."


  7. بستنی (wasiq) on July 9th, 2009 @ 7:27 am

    I really don’t think you guys have grasped the fear or forewarning of the author here….the signal free corridor under construction upto saddar…will make it inevitable to leave this intersection as it is….obviously the planners have a plan for this section as well….and in order to get it done they are bringing in the bureaucratic administrators….instead of the nazims….either way take as many pictures of this and eat as much as you can…because soon this road will be dug and these old shaby building brought to ground in the name of ….development of karachi….

    GOD BLESS AMERICA..!

    The only good thing shaukat aziz was to do to this forsaken conutry was.

    To build diamond bar island, finaly a breeze is this suffocating mahool.

    Lotsa booze, stripers and loads of juwa khanay, no need to burn $$ in las vegas and take long leaves.

    U can go there everyweekend, wud have attracted forigner juwariz aswell.

    Now….na diamond bar raha na stripers, and this mulak is stuck with those bushy smelly mullahs and there miscarrige talibans

  21. balma on July 17th, 2009 @ 12:57 am

    Fasiq,
    Either write proper Urdu, or stick to bad English.


  22. بستنی (wasiq) on July 17th, 2009 @ 10:21 am

    @Balma jee….shama kije ay maharaj….KD kay Inteqal kay baad ab toh aap hee bhagwan ho….jo agiya ho….

    You don’t understand what it is
    That makes me tick, but you wish you did
    You always second guess wonderin’
    I say yes but you just lose out every time


  23. fasee on July 17th, 2009 @ 1:43 pm

    @ wasiq

    Oyee nai yaar, abi inteqaal ki baat nai kertay….let’s hope for the best…he was to go to surgery on 20th…so let’s see what come out.

    As for balma being a bhagwan…yaar meray ko us per bhagwan walay ikhlaaq say giray huway 3,4 latifay yaad a gai…shayed inhi ke liyee thay….next time jub unban huwa tu sunaon ga.


  24. balma on July 17th, 2009 @ 5:49 pm

    Fasiq,
    Bad Urdu again!


  25. بستنی (wasiq) on July 17th, 2009 @ 6:06 pm

    @fasee sab….by inteqal I did not mean dead or divorced…..these day KD would be in the real world playing with the real people(americans),doctors and nurses and bar maids etc etc….after which he may not like to return to this cyber world which probably gave him this illness….am I right..?

    @Balma jee….Okay!

    woh mujh sey huay hum kalam Allah Allah….


  26. balma on July 17th, 2009 @ 7:31 pm

    The word inteqaal does mean ‘transfer’, but in our language it has become to deonte ‘death’…that is inteqaal pur malaal to the other world:-)

    Over indulgence in the cyber world is indeed a cause of major health problems, especially the use of laptop computers.
    Desk top computers are more ergonomic, but one has to watch out for repetitive motions like the use of key board and mouse. It may lead to carpel tunnel syndorome – pain in wrists.
    And, especially in the case of laptops, we see young and old having bad postures. This can lead to pain in shoulders and lower back pain, making every one a ‘kubRaa aashiq’ (huntchback).

    And, guys and girls, avoid putting laptops on your thighs close to your private parts. You may be damaging chances of having any future generations. The laptop does heat up, you know:-)


  27. fasee on July 17th, 2009 @ 9:13 pm

    @ balma

    Why pur-malal….why not pur-dhamal.

    As for ergonomics….yeh economics ki choti behan hai kiya…??

    As for postures, laptop give u freedom to choose the way we like…and sadly we always choose the worst for us….exhibit 1 zardari, exhibit 2 shaheed poodle, exhibit 3, kana dajjal. Exhibit 4, gunja phasadi……….list goes on.

    Private parts….well balma jee, is ke liye reflex action hi kafi hai…when someone starts sweating down there, without any katrina kaif or jhon abraham near around…tu samajh jao harmone ghotala ya nechoo garmi huway hai.

    Kachi lassi, dahee ya satto piya karoo bhaya.

    As for next generation….this forsaken country needs all types of intentioanl or unintential ways that this virus named pakiz don’t propogate in geomatric proportions

    aap ney yeah rumor phela rakhi hai jabhi toh….mein distract kar raha houn aur hain kay attract ho rahey hain…..
