Oh Karachi, my Karachi!

When writing on the city, talk about Lyari, Botal Gali and all non-tish tosh areas so you can show how awami you are.

Well! End of the day all will remember the contribution for portraying the soft image of the land. If you go through the surrounding of the city .There are more local artists who use to play their instrument according to demands ( SHADI/Weddings, Festivals at Shrines etc). Restoration and re-activation of indigenous music resources along with famous beats must be promoted through your fruitful information dissemination. I hope its great cause to contribute for the betterment of existing cultural means. Best of Luck! Shafqat Shfkt.ali@gmail.com
