Book Review

What  spread out before we was an instant city a metropolis that as grown so rapidly that a returning visitor form a few decades ago would scarcely recognize it. The instant city retains some of its original character and architecture, but has expanded so much that the new overshadows the old.

What follows is the story of a single day in Karachi’s life it was a date that almost everyone in Karachi remembered: many vividly recalled where they were and what they were doing. I set out to learn the even of that day, the history that led up to it, and the aftershocks and consequences that followed. It’s a slice of the urban world we’ve all been building.
