Karachi Walk – Mubarak Village

A perfect hideout. far from ever increasing pollution. from fast widening telecom range. from disgusting commercialization. and from ever present branding. It may not qualify as a Karachi Area technically but who cares. With due respect to Pitras, Karachi may well become a country soon. with a capital called Pakistan.

To get to Mubarak village, turn right from M.T. Khan road for the road leading to SITE. Turn left when you reach Mauripur’s Masroor Air Force base. Drive for six, seven k.m. and then turn right when you reach Sandspit huts. Drive for two minutes past small restaurants and toll collection post on your left and turn right again. A small road will lead you to Mubarak village: A journey which will take thirty minutes. The road is winding and goes through a landscape with hazy outlines and sporadic greenery. You will encounter fog but it should not be a problem. Driving early which is a must if you plan to take a boat ride as noon low tides make it difficult to embark on a fishing trip. You will find small settlements on either end of the road. In the distance you can see Hubco chimney ejecting dark cloud of smoke in otherwise clean fresh air. Some call it a sign of progress, others call it a sign of changing times, worsening times.

Mubarak village is home to approx. 2,500 fishermen and their families. Water is a rare commodity which is dispatched to the village in tankers. There is a school for children and small time market for the catch from the fishing boats. Not many people come here for leisure as the road leading to the village is notoriously known for kidnapping and burglary. There is not any security check post and question remains if its a fact or just a bad reputation. Either way it keep enthusiasts away from the village. There is no way you can book a fishing expedition while sitting in your office. You have to go there and book in advance or go early and book from available options then and there. You may not be able to book kemari-like boats with shade from there, which by the way is highly recommended as sun and rough sea can make you feel dizzy. Vomiting is a real possibility. Don’t put your hands in the deep water. The place is know for many species of snakes. The Karachi walla saw two snakes swimming in blue clean water. shinning in pallid yellow sunlight. twisting and turning. It was beautiful.
