Burns Road, is a street in old downtown Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. Because of different vowels in the Urdu language, it is generally referred to as “Buns Road” by locals, Photo by Yasir Kazmi, Karachi, Pakistan.
from the very beginning, always been the ideal eating place for all people from all classes of society. Located right in the heart of the city center, Burns Road is a crowded two way road where you are likely to get caught in traffic because of the double parkings on either side. The restaurants along the road are packed with people at peak hours, and the roads are packed with even more cars, making it all the more difficult for anyone else to get across the road. Burns Road is famous for its traditional food offerings such as Biryani and Karahi, Dhaga Kabab, Fry Kabab, Nihari, Haleem and fried finger fish. More specialties including Kheer, Rabri, Ras Malai, Ras Gulay, Lassi and Dahi Bara. There are a couple of Halwa Puri stalls too which serve Halwa Puri for breakfast.
The famous Lassi shops have been around since post partition period and also serve Milk with dry fruits. They also have Mango Shake (Aam Ki Botal) and Mango ice-cream during Mango season and Gajar Carrot Ka Halwa in winter. They usually open 6 or 7 am and stay open till 2 ammidnight and later on weekends.
Burns Road also boasts of two well known sweets shops, Fresco and Bhashanis; that is a great boon for Desi sweets lovers.
Pakistan a nation of 160 million People has in real 34% of its Population that is much higher then the Government figure is 24% living below the Poverty line but precious little seems to be done to Address this imbalance.Even more the fact is that Government Figure do not Recognize the Growing Urban-Rural divide.
This Issue is Directly link toward Country Tax Structure,with the Majority of the Revenues going into coffers of Fredral and Provincial Government,which forcing the Local Bodies that have the wrestle with the Poverty Issues to plead with these Authority for more money.The debate over this issue has been going on for years”.
The government says that the number of people living below the poverty line has dropped significantly in recent years from 34 percent of the population in 1999 to 24 percent today.As in the case of many other developing countries, the government uses an income yardstick of a dollar-a-day per person to define poverty. But this is a very misleading figure in Pakistan’s case.
“For one thing, there has been a sharp decline in the rupee’s value against the dollar over the last 15 years. Back in the early 1990s, a dollar was worth around Rs.30. Today, it is worth Rs.90. So, when one says that a person’s income is a dollar a day today, it translates into an income of Rs.90 rupees a day.
Common men now expecting alot from Election 2013 and hoping for change in their current worst situation to better situation.
