A Quick Visit To Humara Karachi Food Festival.


Yesterday I spotted for the first time this exciting food festival by the side of the road in North Nazimabad Block N. The scene was filled with the sprit of festivity and I could not stop my self from parking by the road and giving this place a quick visit.

The Street were all lit up with lights, yeah I know we have an acute electricity shortage and this my not be a good idea but well any ways it presented a pretty sight, although very superficial may be a mirage to call it the city of lights, but what so ever it was pretty. And all the food lined up on the stalls, Chola Chart, Gool Gappay other snacks something for every one to enjoy. Kids, youngsters old people, Poor, rich and people who could hardly afford a plate of Gool Gappay. The festival had something of cheer up every one.

Un fortunately being on steroids (for medical reasons) I couldn’t try any of the dishes but looking at all those people enjoying, forgetting all their worries at least for the moment and kids holding candy floss and it’s sweetness showing up all on their face, was a pleasant sight.

I really hope such festivals and events should continue around the year providing specially the under privileged and people with limited income and their children some enjoyment, entertainment and reasons to put their worries away for at least a few moments.

    Pizza Hut, Pizza Express & KFC for the under privileged?? No the rates are not drastically slashed.

    its kind of a celebration so yes ppl are comin over more then they wud in normal days but to be honest its just an ok experience, nothing fancy

    We already have this section, on both side of the street, packed wid shops, it wud be better if a different place is selected in future

    faylasuf said what I wanted to share about. I second him/her. it’s pretty useless event, rather it’s bein more trouble for residents due to extra electricity being wasted in this festival.

    Just wanted to ask the so called Civil Society one little question. WOuld they be willing to protest against Zardari abolishing the local government system? the only thing which has brought some progress to Khi.

    Lets not make this a pro / anti MQM thing please. I am just asking people to support the local government system, and not the people running it. Please write to different papers if you support this system.

    As for the journalists out there, tum logon ko Zardari se envelope pahunch gia or will you support this local govt system as well.
