Askari Park

Remember Old Sabzi Mandi, that awful, smelly place between Hasan Square and Jail Road? Sabzi Mandi has now moved out of town; it is now on Super Highway. A park, Askari Park, has been built in the emptied lot. The park welcomes only families--a necessary safeguard against gawking men that you find everywhere. This night view shows landscape lighting in the lush green lawn with a new age fountain in the background. This has been one positive development in Karachi: many new parks have opened up, old parks have been revitalized. I wonder if Uncle Sam believes recreating Pakistanis would be less likely to answer the jihad call.
