Fireworks lit up the sky over Karachi

Last night while coming back home & 1.5 km from Mazar I saw sparklers at 45′ angle over Mazar chowrangi. My initial plan was some other route but I changed my mind & reached the spot where traffic had just started gathering. I heard whistling (sound when fireworks-load is projected upwards) & the sky over lit up brightly. Yes, the fireworks had just began & I was right on time.

My immediate thought was why the heck I didn’t have a camera. Karachiites don’t get much to divert mind from problems in city but this was a treat. Youngsters were recording the show on mobile & I was praying they may upload the video. To our good luck, someone did. Although the video’s don’t do full justice to the beautiful display & are short too but anyhow, it should give you the feel of it. The public thoroughly enjoyed a mid-night treat from city administration. Here we go! I’ll definitely blog more video’s if others upload too.

    Arsalan, they are video’s , not images. And you need Adobe (previously Macromedia) flash plugin installed on your system to be able to view it. If you don’t have it CLICK HERE & install. Also, when i blog this post first i didn’t have video’s. I include them later so you might be seeing first page. Trying refreshing your page ( Control + F5 on keyboard) as your server might have cache setup. Let me know if you have any issues.
