I grew up in that city. As schools kids, we would travel all over the city alone in public transport and our parents were never worried. No cell phones, no internet, no landline at home. We would go to the beach at midnight to have fish or at PIDC to have paan or to Bahadurabad to have Spinzer icecone !! Our greatest treat would be to take a boat at Kemari and go out crabbing in sea. It was here, where I got my first hunting lessons with Dad where we used to go together, freezing in open jeeps, to lakes in interior sindh for duck and partridge hunting. Imagine, we used to go to school in Train ! Only city in the country which had local train running through it. The service is long dead now I think.
It was city of peace, lights and nostalgic memories – then MQM raised its filthy head….. and today it is a war zone….
All the nostalgic memories came back with sheer pain when I received this mail today....
