Balcony Watch. A frivolous activity in a world running at a maddening pace. The Karachi Walla has ostrich like behavior in face of reality therefore falls for these balconies time and again. Who lives there? Why don’t they care? I feel like climbing the stairs and plea the residents. These balconies are dying a slow painful death. A writer once said that our vocabulary of sophisticated words gets depleted as a society turns materialistic. Then everything gets measured by soulless numbers. The sophisticated vocabulary and these balconies both have no chance in such society.
All of these pictures were clicked in Saddar. The architects and masons of these balconies have disappeared but not long before leaving their mark on Karachi’s landscape. Through the balconies. How do you plan to leave your mark?
