    Dear Umar,

    I would love to download in wall paper size. Please allow me using it on my blog. Isn’t this the same photograph used in Kara film festival’s Dharakta hai yeh dil poster?

    Dear Umar please talk more about this image. Like how you took it, at what time and neighborhoods visible, etc. It is really very beautiful.

    I shot this image around 8pm from one of the offices in ceasar tower, located at shahrah-e-faisal.

    In the foreground you can see saddar and sindhi muslim. The streak of lights on the top middle is tariq road and just below the horizon is the area of PECHS and other areas around that.

    I shall upload the wallpaper during the weekend.

    I am really happy to see that now we have a blogger to capture the city and blog the nights of the Queen. Same streets, same buildings but they look so glorious, so unique here.

    If you want to see some awesome photos of Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad then you need to see skyscrapercity.com

    They have a whole section dedicated to Pakistan Urban Development and much more I signed up after finding the link from this website…

    HI GUYS…I’M FROM MUMBAI,INDIA.
    HAD A GOOD TIME GOING THRU THIS BLOG DEDICATED TO YOUR COMMERCIAL CAPITAL-KARACHI.
    THOUGH I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO SEE A MORE REALISTIC VIEW OF KARACHI.TAKE FOR EXAMPLE,MUMBAI IS (AND I SAY IT VERY PROUDLY)ACCORDING TO RECENT NASA IMAGES,THE SECOND LARGEST CITY IN THE WORLD NEXT ONLY TO TOKYO!IT HAS 23MILLION RESIDENTS.IN YOUR WEBSITE’S SECTION DEDICATED TO MUMBAI,I CAN FIND A LARGE NUMBER OF PHOTOS SHOWING THE PEOPLE OF BOMBAY,BOTH RICH AND POOR.THE PHOTOS ALSO DEPICT THE URBANE AS WELL AS THE NOT SO PRIVILEGED DETAILS OF THE CITY,WHICH I FIND MISSING IN YOUR DESCRIPTION OF KARACHI.
    U JUST MENTION THE POSITIVE ASPECTS OF KARACHI.
    SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE IN THIS EFFECT.
    OTHERWISE..GREAT JOB DONE GUYS.
    CHEERS!

    Great work man! Keep it up.

    Sanjeev, this is realistic view. Sure Mumbai is second largest (India is also second largest, in population).

    >>U JUST MENTION THE POSITIVE ASPECTS OF KARACHI.

    Read carefully, we mention everything.

    I’m in San Jose, California and I saw images of Mumbai during the rain-season (AND FRANKLY WAS STUNNED. I ALWAYS USED TO COMPARE MUMBAI TO KARACHI AND I’VE BEEN TO MUMBAI TO VISIT MY RELATIVES). No offence, but Karachi is not like that. So what you see is what you get :-)
