    Jama Cloth. And I knew this one! Hurray, must be the first time in ages I’ve guessed a where in Karachi correctly. There’s a fantastic juice wala just outside the main enterance, and in the summers very often we would cross the road at the end of school and get nembo pani from here and then go home refreshed. Aaah, this is bring back all sorts of early childhood memories now, I can now recall that one day when my mom bought some chondri cloth at half of the originally stated price at this one shop there which carried a big “NO BARGAINING ALLOWED” sign (in English)! I haven’t been there in a long, long time, but good to see the place has changed much, with its characteristic tin roofs with really old looking (and noisy) fans.

    That small kid clearly does not want to be photographed. Unless they are your family or you took the permission of photographing and posting it on internet, this is a shameful act.

    Wasiq, the comment was classic :-)

    I have been to jama cloth a couple of times and I think the roof top of it doesnt looks like the one in pict.
    You gals must have studied in Khi college, as I think beside Dow Medical thats the only college nearby, oh yah one more Women college too.

    guessed in 10 seconds, Jubilee market. used to go there as a kid.

  17. zainub (unregistered) on April 17th, 2007 @ 5:02 pm

    Aik second, I always thought Jubilee and Jama were the same thing – aren’t they like two names for the same place, both starting from J too – oh common, I can’t be wrong again, I’ve been to this place a gazillion times.
