10 unforgettable Karachi memories (and there are many more!)

Posted by

1. Night cricket with tape ball (and email exchanges beforehand, announcing teams, rules, strategies, trash talks, who’s who and your world view in general)

2. Student biryani (or just any biryani) & Nihari Inn…

3. Laraib music store (with it’s incredible DVD collection – think of a movie or a show, from Monty Python to Mission Impossible, and they will hand you it’s DVD in less than a minute)

4. Sudden outburst of donkey carts racing on the roads (quite literally!)

5. Sunday Bazaar

6. Live football/cricket matches on a big screen in office during lunch breaks

7 Makka ki chicken karahi (a top contender for the most delicious chicken ever cooked)

8. Liberty Books (specially the branch next to / inside bar b q tonight, and its fascinating collection of Current / Asia / Pakistan affairs books)

9. Driving at 1:30 am with friends on immensely busy roads, to eat hot & spicy rolls, followed by coffee


10. The extraordinary group of friends – comprising 7 languages, 4 religions, indefinite ethnicities, yet all born & bred Pakistanis, sharing uniquely similar slang, wit, cleverness & culture!
