#Karachi is my life, my love and why we need to save it!

March 20, 2016

Karachi is the love of my life and what’s the best way to express your love than to promote and share your city with the world so I joined a photo walk organized by The School of Writing in connection with the Karachi Day that was initiated by The I Am Karachi Society. The walk was a through downtown Saddar

Personally speaking as a Karachi based blogger and activist it was a wonderful experience to be part of an initiative that is promoting a more vibrant, multicultural, religiously diverse and colorful image of Karachi which is often ignored because of the constant media hype of terrorism and instability within our peaceful city.

This initiative attracted many brave photographers and activists who accompanied us to make this initiative a success by highlighting Karachi as never seen before with the help of social media and digital photography but more needs to be done to safeguard public spaces and urban environment in Karachi which is unfortunately facing constant threat of pollution, encroachment and vandalism.

It is about time that the stakeholders of Karachi wake up to the crisis this city’s natural and cultural heritage is facing before all the beauty, peace and love is lost to the greed and short-sightedness of a few malign ones.
