Karachi-The New Venice

Rains are welcomed with all enthusiasm. The smell of coffee, chai, and pakoras. It’s mesmerizing. Well! Not so in Karachi, which has invited the Arabian Sea to invade its streets. Since the government had announced that Karachi will be made just like Venice, so here the monsoon rains have converted the old city into a new Venice. The citizens are enjoying living on the island with boats moving around, and having the best time of their lives. You don’t need to visit Paris or France now, you just need to visit Karachi to have that exotic experience.

It is not the first time Karachi is flooded and floating. It has been like this for a century. It has always been abandoned and remains so. Mini Pakistan has been ignored and neglected by the government. There is no end to their misery.

He said that the Karachi Mayor had indeed kept a promise, “The Karachi MAYOR, when he spoke to his counterpart in Italy, promised to turn Karachi into Venice. The results are quite splendid!” he added sarcastically, “Head to Elfi street to experience Italy in Pakistan…at your own risk.”
