Living in Karachi and getting ourselves baked in scorching sun is the most common practice amongst Karachites during summers. Only before the month of June. Because, yes, the monsoon is around the corner now and besides all the bad conditions the city gets into due to rain, I love the rains in Karachi more than anything else. The city comes out as new and polished as a metal comes out after being scrubbed and washed in the golden water. The invigorating sites of Karachi look more beautiful than ever during rain. It is also said to be the most romantic season of Karachi to which I undoubtedly agree. All the scrumptious desi cuisines that we get to enjoy during rain the further add up to the season. The yummy aalo kay parathey, Pakoday, samosey and the list goes on and on and on. The beach becomes the rendezvous spot during rains. The rain, the beach and the bhuttays. The ultimate trio, freshens you up to the cusps of your senses. Despite the fact that it hasn’t started pouring as yet; though it’s late June, the K-town people are all energetic about the upcoming monsoon rains. We are going to splash this summer like we always do, because THAT’S HOW WE ROLL!
