I have no idea whether this is even a real image or not, but is this Karachi in a few years? 😛

The CDGK HAS done a tremendous job. It takes me half an hour to get to Clifton from North Nazimabad now – when I came to Karachi just about exactly four years ago (June 13, 2005 – and I haven’t forgotten the date because it was two days after graduation!) it took over an hour. So much has changed.

There was a lot of ridicule directed at this municipal government – from all the jokes about gadde to the criticism (appropriate) directed at mistakes:

But there HAVE been accomplishments.

And despite all the criticism, Mustafa Kamal’s government HAS taken some positive actions – the I Own Karachi campaign and, more recently, the removal of myriad banners and flags count as positives for me.
