This is a site dedicated to the story of Karachi City as is existed before the year 2000; We plan to place write-up and photos of the history of the Karachi from its beginnings as a fishing village of Mai Kolachi to its rise as a sea port town leading to it’s elevation as a capital of the new nation of Pakistan in 1947. From then on it has witnessed phenomenal growth to it present status as one of the largest metropolitan city of Asia.
The writers who will be contributing have expressed an interest in preserving accounts of the enormous contributions made by the Sindhi and Baluchi original rulers of this town, the British invaders and most importantly by minorities that lived here (Hindus, Christians, Parsis, Jews and other religions as well as indigenous Sindhis. ). Each of these groups will be given a separate category and their achievements and contributions highlighted. This is being done by the present generations who have lived and witnessed the era from 1940’s to 2000 and want these milestones to be recorded for posterity.
Most importantly, this site will focus on historical aspects and stay clear of any political, ethnic or religious discussions. (other than mentioning the work of different ethnic groups)
