Karachi Social Scene Begins to Heat Up
This is a new trend as in the past the bureaucracy used to frown on any organized gathering. The biggest city of the country, Karachi, has long been called the city of lights. However, of late, it is now truly shining with a number of events and functions taking place at the behest of different organizations and institutions. Many NGOs are organising their colorful functions, shows and Melas in the city and this week saw some of them take place. Musahiras have recently been organised at the National Stadium, at the Gehwara-e-Adab, at Annu Bhai Park … There are also literary sittings at the “Koocha-e-Saqafat” on Sundays organised by the Arts Council of Pakistan and different Mushairas have also taken place at different places in the city.
