Commentary > Letter from Karachi: For a place in the shade

    I live next to Bin Qasim Park which you Beach Park. Before it’s beautification the park was full with people. Sitting on the grass picnicking playing football. It now has a two layer barbed wire on the wall. The park lies empty. Only dogs room in it. Massive spot lights have been installed presumably to make sure the dogs don’t trip over each other.
    It’s a travesty that one of the largest parks made from tax payers money cannot be used.

    There is not a single tree of shade here as you have pointed out.
