Karachi is the city of lights, the lights that once shined brighter than everyone else, have been pushed into terror and darkness by the recent activities that had happened in Karachi. The darkness lured youth into drugs, cheating and fraud and resulted in a sad situation. We as Karachities, have suffered so much that we have found ways to enlightened our nights and days. The more they suppressed us the bigger and bolder we have grown..
