    I think i know exactly what this picture is showing. I have many pics to show and many areas to cover. What do i do ?. Should i upload them with markings or just name here in this pic?.
    By the way the main road right in the middle is Shahra-e-Faisal with many surrounding areas but the area that is in focus is the one that goes from Nursery to Baloch Bridge and the area which is at the back side is the one in parallel with this road with localities on right side ( going from Nursery to Airport).

    My guess is that the road at the bottom is Korangi passing in front of DHA Office etc. The T-Junction also at the bottom is the junction between Korangi and Sunset Blvd.

    I agree with MB Shahrai Faisal is the region from Shahrai Qaideen to Baluch Colony bridge.

    It is indeed an interesting picture

    I very well know now what this place is, so I better not write here. But I couldnt figure out for a long time and one of my friends suggested to google it, so I just did that and now I know.

    “I very well know now what this place is, so I better not write here”

    Hi there, this post is not related to Where in karachi but my problem is :). I am trying desperetely to find phone numbers of university of karachi but their website(ahhh dont want to know the words i have to describe that crap site) has no information whatsoever.Whatever numbers ihave found through so called directories end up someone’s residence numbers not KU numbers.So please someone give me working (active) University of karachi number. I can not believe they dont have website where they can provide contact info , let alone other information.

    thanks poo poo head and shazad. The number was correct and actually able to talk to few ppl at this number.Thanks for your help i appreciate that but i hoped ppl at that place were as helpful as ppl at metblog. :).

    Dee, I am sorry that I could not see your comment earlier , what sort of work do you want to get, if you are in karachi then I may give you hints. But I guess you are trying to contact them on phone then it would be very difficult. Ask some on in Karachi to go there and give some tips to them. By the way if you do need any info then I could get it within 24 hours.

    Thanks p00 p00 head, i am not in karachi and thats the problem.I am in Canada and applying for MBA and official transcripts from KU are needed as part of application.But i was told from KU that in order to apply for Duplicate (offical transcript) i have to come to karachi.I dont understand why? ,Its nonsense. I have explained to KU that i will be happy to send them cheque or whatever their preffered method of payment is and also arrange for DHL to pick up the duplicate. It was so easy for me to go to my current University web site(Canadian University) and fill up a form for marksheet request and then they charged my visa or master for admin fees and courier and voilla , i recieved confirmation from the university i am going to apply for MBA that they have recieved officail transcript.No fuss no muss.

    Hmm I don’t think that you need to be there, do you have an enrollment card with you ?? The second best thing is to call your department, look at http://ku.edu.pk/ , they might have some contact info for particular dept. But what I did when I was in same situation. There was a **** Sahib at Regiterar office who charged me 50 Rs for each sealed offcial copy. They are supposed to be free by the way. He used to work in some hospital in Saddar and I dealt with him there but I know its all messed. Ask one of your friend to go to KU and meet **** Sahib and he would get you in couple of days. He works in registrar office. You may call at registrar office and asks for him(he was well known guy), he was very responsible man. Easy way, no mess but generally the people there were friendly if you were there , I did not have enough time so I made a deal. Email me at paloaltanbuddy@yahoo.com , I am sorry, I can not ridicule one at public forum but for sure he would get your work done. All the best for your further studies, I love it when Pakistani women go for higher studies.
