karachi by design

meyum and my class this week is evolving into a design study of karachi-
of the little signs and nuances that this mad, mad, mad, mad city of ours is all about. im going seraching in the nooks and crannies of details that please, inspire, allow magic, charm, amuse, disgust and amaze me. i am going to be looking at the city with a brand new pair of eyes, ones that hopefully less jaded and more sparkly. ones that see the changes that have occurred as opposed to the stagnancy that has prevailed.

  1. wonderful idea. do take an extended walk through kharadar and empress market. i always thought that those two places always had a certain je ne sais quoi to say the least.
    Also that old building around lucky star thats almost hollow from the inside but the facade still stands. I wonder if its still around, I always found it thought provoking

  2. thanks idiot (i feel funny calling you that)…i always plan to…but something waylays me…

    cocaine…ive walked through both and its great great fun. but your eyes and mind both need to be slightly open na?

  3. i dunno…i feel that uve always had that ‘new’ pair of eyes and thats how uve always looked at everything…it blows me away the way u interpret things…and the way u shoot ideas off about things that id never notice…
    and having u as my advisor is not a blessing(as ppl are saying)…its intimidating!
    why do ppl think that just because we’re close ull help me breeze thru the thesis dammit…i hated their knowing faces when u were appointed my advisor!
    …keep checking…i feel a post brewing!

  8. Hey, YES WE DO! And what a shocker that was. I was totally not expecting it. You would’ve gotten my mail where I was all apologies. I’m so bad in social situations, I just freeze.
