City Series – Kulsoom Bano in Karachi, We the Isolationists (161st Corona Diary)

[Text and photo by Kulsoom Bano]

This whole Corona episode has reminded me of the political strikes that Karachi witnessed in the mid-90s. But even back then, there was a life which I can’t feel anymore.
I open my eyes and promise myself never to complain about the pace of life, and my hustling bustling city.
